Project A 2 Review


In this 1987 chopsocker, Jackie Chan returns as Dragon Mao, a supercop who, just back from his adventures in Project A, discovers corruption in the police force. He's then framed for a crime and ends up battling both cops and robbers to clear his name and bring the true evildoers to justice.

Unfortunately, former sidekick Sammo Hung is absent this time around, and there are far fewer fights to be had. The cool stuntwork doesn't come out until the final 15 minutes, but by then I was honestly too bored to perk up. The rest of the film is just much less inventive than its predecessor, proving Project A 2 to be a vanity knockoff for Chan, who was busy directing every action film he could get his hands on. Chan would go on to make much better movies with a more impressive sense of humor later, but A 2 qualifies for little better than a C-.

Aka Project A II, 'A' gai waak juk jaap.
