Exciting sequel with nonstop action, thrills , humor and lots of fights
This is the following to ¨Project A¨ in which a honest Hong Kong coast guard officer battled pirates on the high seas . Moving sequel , ¨Jackie Chan's Project A part 2 (1987)¨ in which Dragon is back with a new set of action and played by Maggie Cheung , Carina Lau and again produced and directed by Jackie Chan along with Raymong Chow and his Production Company called Golden Harvest . This piece period that is well set contains numerous nice physical routines . There Dragon Ma , an upright coast guard officer ,Jackie Chan , fighting against nasties in "old Hong Kong". Reluctantly, the Coast Guard is assigned the mission to fight revolutionaries . Dragon is now transferred to be the police head of Sai Wan district, the Police Commissioner (Bill Tung) assigns him a dangerous project to face off with a gangster kingpin , anti-Manchu revolutionaries ( Rosamund Kwan , Maggie Cheung), some runaway pirates , Manchu Loyalists and a corrupt police superintendent named Chun (David Lam , also producer) . Dragon Ma is helped by some good polices and they take on nasty corrupt officials in the government and seek to thwart the Dragon's efforts to vanquish them . At the end takes place a comic Kung-Fu battle between Jackie and the villain in a rousing final.
Chinese costume drama with plenty of over-the-top action , thrills , ingenious stunts , tongue in cheek and amusing music . This exciting movie is packed with adventure , intrigue , unstopped action , overwhelming stunt-work and lots of fights but with humor . Jackie Chan is top notch as one army man fighting a group of heinous nasties and as always he makes his own stunts like is well showed . Awesome , incredible stunts and brief comic touches , as usual . The lighting-paced storyline slows down at times , but frantic action sequences make up for it . Spotlights movie include spectacular brawls , a Chinese torture with a giant block , Jackie jumping down a building , on a roof , impressive and interminable fights with Chan dangling and downing , a breathtaking final struggle and other extraordinary action sequences in overwhelming style . This is an acceptable action movie distinguished by nicely cinematography of the spectacular sequences , and contains agreeable sense of humor such as previous entry . Jackie Chan usually forms couple to notorious actors as Sammo Hung and actresses as Maggie Cheung and Michelle Yeoh . In this outing Jackie teams up again to prestigious Chinese actress Maggie Cheung , a fine action star in their own right and with a prestigious and successful career such as she has proved in ¨Hero , China box , Clean , In the mood for love and 2046¨ and a many others . ¨Project A , 2¨ is a passable action movie distinguished by ferocious sequences , and packs silly sense of humor as well as Jackie's former and subsequent entries . Furthermore , moving and thrilling original musical score fitting to action . The picture achieved success in China and around the world . However , Jackie Chan's failed at Box-office in his American debut ,¨Battle creek brawl¨ . Chan pays overt homage to two of his greatest influences as Charles Chaplin and Harold Lloyd . Chan is a hard-working actor and director throughout his long and varied career . He went on playing ¨Cannoball¨ , ¨The protector¨ and "Rumble in the Bronx", until getting all American success with ¨Shangai Knights¨ , ¨The tuxedo¨ , ¨Around the world in 80 days¨ and ¨Rush hour¨ trilogy , and the recent ¨Karate kid¨. Of course , his biggest hits were ¨The Police story¨ series that won the Golden Horse Award, a Chinese version of the Oscar , the first was titled ¨Police story(1985)¨ directed by the same Chan , it was a perfect action film for enthusiastic of the genre ; the following was ¨Police story 2(1988)¨also pretty violent and with abundant humor touches. It's followed by ¨Supercop¨ or ¨Police story 3¨ and finally, ¨Police story IV : Crime story. ¨Project A, 2¨ is lavishly produced by the great Asian producers Raymond Chow and Golden Way Ltd films production and middlingly directed by Jackie Chan . Rating : Acceptable and passable but inferior to the first part, the picture has its sensational moments here and there , but also with abundant humor touches mostly provided by its agile star , the super Jackie . It's a regular action film for enthusiast of the genre though only for Jackie fans .
