[#DrawWithMango × #DailyMovieSketch]Police Story 3: Super Cop (1992)Directed by Stanley TongThird sketch in my series of 90s movies for @mangopenciler's #90snostalgia art challenge. This is the third "Police Story" movie and the first in the series not to be directed by Jackie Chan. Jackie is an undercover cop trying to take down drug lord Chaibat. Michelle Yeoh co-stars in the movie as an Interpol officer.I watched this movie in the theatre in the early 90s and I remember it fondly. For this drawing I actually rewatched it (on YouTube – both versions are available, more on this later, beware of the US version) and it's a terrific movie. At a brisk 95 min, the movie is fast paced. There is comedy but the central story and characters are treated seriously.The action scenes are fantastic with some amazing set pieces, and Michelle Yeoh proves to be Chan's equal in the fights. If you have not seen it in many years, you will enjoy rewatching it. And if you haven't seen it at all, you should. You can enjoy it even if you haven't seen the first two. Here are a few things about the movie – • The original version of the movie (on the film itself and even the posters) credits Michelle Yeoh as Michelle Khan, and that's how I saw it.• Quentin Tarantino considers this movie one of the best movies ever made since he started making movies. (For my 1992 sketch, I could've picked Tarantino's first, "Reservoir Dogs", but I drew that in 2016)• The movie was released in the US in 1996 as "Supercop". Like all the American versions of Jackie's movies released by Dimension Films, please stay away from that version. I think this film is not as severely affected as others but, the US version has an extremely cheap looking title sequence added, is cut by around 10 min, has cliched songs ("Kung Fu Fighting", really?) added and a replaced music score. Some of the movies have as much as 15 or 20 min cut. I can't bring myself to watch these versions! (Out of morbid curiosity, you can check for these on YouTube.) I drew Jackie Chan from the movie, it was drawn with the @ns1pen, Gelly Roll pen and yellow colour pencil, on A6 Brustro sketchbook and scanned.#421 / 5-Mar-19
