Inspector Ma gets his second assignment
8 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a direct sequel to the Project A. All the casts from the previous movie returns to continue their roles.

Inspector Chun is the only Chinese police officer who is allowed to carry a gun under the British rule China. He's corrupt and stages his own arrest to make himself look good, killing the hired suspects during his arrest. His superiors are on to it and recommends Dragon Ma (Jackie Chan) to patrol Chun's territory along with him to find proof to his corruption. He becomes assigned to Sai Wan district as police superintendent. Two flower sales girls Yesan and Beattie (Maggie Chun, and Lau Ka Lin) is also into agitating the crowd to promote revolution. So police are keeping eye on them. They end up selling flowers to Dragon and his colleagues, and immediately after gets robbed. Dragon and his pals apprehend the thieves. The thieves are Tiger's henchmen, and at the Sai Wan police station they are released because supervisor Chu at the station is bribed by Tiger. Dragon reprimands the officers of Sai Wan station, but they are spineless and corrupt. Dragon must now face Tiger on his own with his own police department being not dependable. But he has his old supervisor Tung, and his troop's support.

This movie was made in Jackie Chan's prime, and his actions are superb. The story and his action has an edge that's refreshing to watch. The movie has an atmosphere of old school Hong Kong kung fu movies, but production is more polished and modern.

While not as comedic as the original Project A, this is an action packed movie that's a classic on its own right.
