Police Woman(1973)


Police Woman (Chinese: 女警察) (aka, Rumble in Hong Kong, Police Woman Against Jackie Chan, Young Tiger, Ru jing cha, Nui ging chaat) is a 1973 Hong Kong detective film directed by Tsu Hdeng. It is one of only two films in which Chan portrays a bad guy (the other being Killer Meteors).

The film was released several times under different names, marketed as a Jackie Chan film, with his image on the cover of the videos and DVDs in an attempt to cash in on the rising star. However, his role can only be considered a cameo appearance, although he was also the film's stunt co-ordinator and fight director. After the success of Chan's 1996 film Rumble in the Bronx, Police Woman was re-released with the title Rumble in Hong Kong. The most recent re-release is called Young Tiger (2002) and again, features Jackie Chan on the cover.

The star of the film, the Police Woman of the (original) title, is Yuen Qiu (who later played the landlady in Stephen Chow's film Kung Fu Hustle). Chan appears very briefly in the film, with a comedic fake mole on his face, a not uncommon characteristic of bad guys in Hong Kong films. Chan's character is one of a group of bodyguards to a crime boss who has taken a woman hostage. Yuen Qiu's character fights and suppresses the gang (including Chan), allowing the hostage to escape.
