Marks the first time that Michael Lai used orchestral music instead of library music or music lifted from other movies. See more »
When Jackie Chan's character is being chased down an alley and escapes into a door, only to reappear in the alley once the guards have gone into the same door, you can tell a cut was made. Items in the background such as a cloth flapping in the wind move in a manner which indicates an obvious jump cut. See more »
Project A combines a complex, twisting plot, a nice historical period setting, typical Chan humour, and of course, many breathtaking fight and stunt sequences. One scene: a bicycle chase though narrow alleys, has to be seen to be believed. The level of invention throughout is awesome, and will never be matched by Hollywood's output. Is this the best Jackie Chan movie? It is definitely a contender, but so many of his films are high quality that it becomes difficult to judge. See it, then make up your own mind.
