JACKIE CHAN‘S “PROJECT A” & “PROJECT A PART II”, a pair of effortlessly entertaining kung fu action-comedy adventures, is NOW AVAILABLE to order via the masters of restored re-releases, Eureka Video, (Amazon and Zavvi) presenting brand new 2K restorations in a lavish, special, Limited Edition, 2-disc Hardbound Box Set!
Starring three of the greatest martial-arts action stars of all time (Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao), the Project A films blended unparalleled martial artistry, death-defying stunts and physical comedy in a way that has yet to be matched.
Project A – Jackie plays Sergeant Dragon Ma, a turn-of-the-century coastguard, hot on the trail of a ruthless band of cut-throat pirates, intent on spreading a trail of blood and mayhem across the South China Seas. “Project A” features some of the most dangerous stunts of Jackie’s career, including homages to Buster Keaton’s Steamboat Bill, Jr. and Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last!
Project A Part II – After the events of the first film, Dragon Ma is given a new assignment, to clean up crime and corruption in the roughest part of town. The pressure was on to top the first film in terms of sheer spectacle, but “Project A Part II” rises to the challenge and unquestionably delivers one of the most stunt-packed, rip-roaring action-adventures of all time.
