If you have seen Hong Kong movies from the early 1990s, then you will find yourself at home with "Project S" (aka "Chao ji ji hua"). This 1993 movie has every ingredient that were using in the Hong Kong action cinema in the early 1990s. But it is not a bad thing, because they had found a formula that worked quite well, and "Project S" is no exception.
The story is about a criminal gang from mainland China doing a robbery in Hong Kong. And to close down the criminal activities and catch them, the Hong Kong police gets assistance from Hua, a highly decorated police officer from China.
As with almost all movie from that era, there is a lot of action, gunfights and martial arts in this movie. And the action sequences were well executed and the martial arts well choreographed. One thing that was a bit bad was how poor everyone were at hitting targets with their firearms.
The acting was good, and the cast list had some good names to it. As always, you never go wrong with Michelle Yeoh, and she delivers well in this movie. And for fans of the Hong Kong cinema then there were two grand cameos in the movie, and they are in drag nonetheless; you will see Jackie Chan and Eric Tsang. No kidding!
"Project S" is a standard, if not generic, early 1990s Hong Kong action movie, but it is still an enjoyable movie to watch.
