Editorial Reviews

Director and star Jackie Chan (Rush Hour 1 & 2, Shanghai Knights, The Tuxedo, Shanghai Noon) is at his hard-hitting, high-flying best in this powerfully entertaining, action-packed treat! After defeating the evil Pirate Lo on the high seas, Dragon Mao (Chan) is assigned to lead the local police force. But he soon discovers that police corruption is running wild right under his nose! When he's framed for a jewelry robbery, Dragon Mao must fight to clear his name while battling with a group of spies, pirates, and revolutionaries who want to see him go down hard! Also starring the amazing Maggie Cheung (Hero, The Heroic Trio, Supercop).

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected... the DVD, that is... May 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Alright... I'm keeping myself anonymous as I've been against Dimension Films' treatment of pretty much all Hong Kong imports, yet this release wasn't as bad... First off, I'm not sure if the print was cut at all, but at least the run time was over 100 min. Yes, this version has a new dub created by Dimension, HOWEVER, it has retained the original Hong Kong score. I don't believe Dimension has ever done this. The only thing close to this was the opposite with "Iron Monkey" in which the Cantonese track had been retained, but the music had changed. Also, the score was blasting in 5.1 surround sound, no less. And even the original sound effects were kept and with very good bass coming from the subwoofer. As for the picture, it looked almost like a brand new film. It might not've hit the standards of the Region 2 company "Hong Kong Legends", but was still highly impressive. As for extras... this is where it falls flat on its face... NOTHING! Also, I had feared that Dimension would chop out the outtakes since Jackie is seen singing in Cantonese in the original version, yet it was left in! Unfortunately, Dimension was too lazy to get subtitles for it. Well, it looks like Dimension may be getting closer to getting things right... but not until they release a Hong Kong film on DVD UNCUT and with BOTH English and Cantonese/Mandarin audio tracks. If Disney/Miramax, can take Japanese anime films ("Spirited Away", "Castle in the Sky", etc.) and give them high-class two disc releases, then why not Hong Kong live action films? They'd sell better that way as well. All we can do is wait... but it's getting harder and harder to hold my breath. As for this DVD... if you can find it for a decent price or you have a gift card and can't find anything else, it's actually worth the purchase. But, if you want original language over video quality, I guess you'll have to find the Mega Star Hong Kong DVD... either way, IT'S UP TO YOU!!

5.0 out of 5 stars maybe Chan's best September 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Project A II is DEFINITELY one of Chan's best films. If anyone tells you different, then they are LYING to you. The story is good(Chan and a few honest cops taking on corruption from everywhwere). The characters are likable(I would've liked to see Dragon Ma's cop friends play a bigger role though). The set pieces and direction is wonderful(nice pacing with no real slow moments). The humor is well done(not over-the-top as Chan can be sometimes). As for the action, 3 major scenes full of inventive choreography, fast & frenetic kung-fu, and stunts for your pleasure(including a finale that seems to go on forever-which is a good thing in this case). That's not including minor fight scenes or other memorable comedic scenes like the scene involving lots of people "hiding" in Maggie Cheung's residence. Overall, a must buy, must see, must own, must have...period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chan Does it Again January 14, 2000
By S Moore
Format:VHS Tape
Well, Jackie does it again! What an excellent movie, however, it isn't as good as Project A, which is my all-time favorite movie. Having the three brothers (Jackie, Sammo and Yuen Biao) together is always a thrill, and even though Project A 2 doesn't have Sammo and Biao, it is an excellent movie with plenty of excitment and, once again, Chan's trademark stunt work. It's a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone, Chan Fan or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant August 18, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I thought this movie was great, and I was lucky enough to find the subtitled version so no cheesy voices, although, the subtitles seem a bit behind the action. For instance, Jackie will say something, and the words will appear about a second later! But this does little to make this amazing movie be any less fantastic. The stuntwork and fighting are beutiful, this is definately one of Jackies finest acheivments, buy it now!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great follow up to Project A April 28, 2007
By morgoth
Format:DVD
David Lam stars as a crooked cop and Jackie is sent in to work alongside him so he can eventually take him down. He has a lot of cleaning up to do in his new district and starts with Chan Wei Man and his gang. The movie is slow going, but there are tons of hilarious scenes that keep things moving along. The plot finally kicks into gear when we find out Maggie Cheung and Rosamund Kwan's plans. This movie is your standard Jackie vs. everybody scenario. There is also a gang of pirates after Jackie because he killed their leader at the end of Project A.

While there are no lengthy 1 on 1 matches, the action is all very good and also has a big emphasis on comedy. There are a couple of very long drawn out comic sequences, but it always ends in a big payoff. Thanks to the comedy, the movie moves along at a good pace. Make sure not to blink early on because there is a 5 second exchange between Jackie Chan and Chan Wei Man that is amazing. The stuntwork is superb. Just don't go into this expecting anything that comes close to matching the 3 on 1 final fight or the clocktower stunt from the first Project A. There is a nice 10 minute sequence towards the end that is filled with crazy stunts and also a few fights. Not his best, but definitely one of Jackie Chan's better movies.

On top of the names already given, the cast also includes Mars, Bill Tung, Fan Mei-Sheng, Ken Lo, Ben Lam, John Chiang, Lee Hoi San and Tiet Wo Chu. Ken Lo and Ben Lam unfortunately don't get in on the action.

4/5

The DVD from Dimension Video is not cut very much and the original music is intact, but the British dubbing gets extremely annoying. Picture quality is very good and perfectly widescreened.

This dvd started out a little stupid with the pirates, but it got a lot better as the movie progessed. Usually anything with Jackie Chan in it is memorable because of his Kung Fu.
