The Police Story film franchise was initially born out of spite from Jackie Chan's displeasure at how his second American movie, The Protector (1985), turned out. Ironically, it was in that latter movie that Jackie's character, Billy Wong, was referred to as "Supercop" by his superior. This, in turn, ended up being the subtitle (and in the case of the U.S. release, the main title) of this film.
