Storyline

Dragon Ma is back, having rid the seas of the dreaded Pirate Lo. Back on land, he is assigned to the police force, where he is to clean up corruption and crime in a local suburb. Along the way, he is caught up in the fate of several Chinese patriots attempting to secure sympathy and support for their revolutionary cause. The Chinese Manchu government is after these revolutionaries, and anyone that stands in their way is in trouble, even if they are in the police force. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Misses Sammo and Yuen, but still good
28 November 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Project A was amazing, fun, action packed and funny. It is one of the better early 80s classics that Jackie Chan was in. But Sammo and Yuen weren't in this film, and most fans agree - this film misses them, and in that sense its disappointing.

Chan, after killing off the pirates in the first one, now is a cop in an overly corrupt police station. The plot revolves around Chan exposing and taking down the dangerous tiger gang singlehandly in his typical "one man against the world" fighting style.

Some pirates come back for revenge, and in face off Jackie in the famous axe throwing scene (that'd be repeated in Shanghai Noon).

The film does move pretty slowly, but its still good fun to watch the film, and in the end Chan puts in a nod-and-a-wink stunt (running down a collapsing wall) that will remind viewers of the same stunt performed by Harold Lloyd(?)

Anyway, its good fun to watch...but if you watched Project A, you may find this disappointing because it doesn't have the comic/directional input of the three brothers.

My Rating: 5/10
