Dragon Ma is back in this exciting sequel to Project A. Once more, he is
working for the Hong Kong Royal Police, this time to bring down the
corrupt local precinct chief of police. A complex plot has the
Emperor’s spies chasing Nationalist rebels, and joining forces with
the corrupt police chief—with Dragon caught in the middle of it all.
Making his life more difficult still, are the pirates left over from
part 1, bent on revenge for the death of their leader at Dragon’s
Debbie's Review: The only thing that keeps this sequel from
surpassing its predecessor is the absence of Jackie’s opera brothers
Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao. If possible, this one has even more action
than the first, and the fantastic bicycle chase scene from PA1 is nearly
(but not quite) matched by a hilarious scene in which Dragon and the police
chief, handcuffed together, are being hotly pursued by the pirates.
Great choreography and comedy in this one. If you’ve seen Shanghai
Noon, you will notice the “hatchet trick” that Jackie recycled for
the American audience.
Although Sammo and Biao are missing, the presence
of Bill Tung and Maggie Cheung almost make up for that. Another
amazingly complex scene has “Uncle” Bill, a couple of the
Dragon and a fellow police officer (handcuffed together), and a couple
of the Emperor’s henchmen all hiding out in Maggie’s apartment,
unknown to each other…Jackie has said it took him a couple of months
to figure out the logistics of it all.
And finally the end of this one has the kind of
manic Jackie-against-the-world fighting that we all love. He also
duplicates a trick from an old Buster Keaton film where a wall falls on
him, leaving him miraculously unhurt by standing directly in the path of
a window. All in all a first rate piece of action entertainment, and one
of Jackie’s best.
Rahman's Review: This is the best Jc film I've ever seen. The fights
are hilarious and so is the humour. I liked the part when Maggie Cheung
had to hide lots of people who were hiding from each other and when Chan
ate those chilli peppers. i liked it in the outtakes where it shows
Jackie Chan singing in the left hand corner
Chan-o-rama's Review: Fun. Thats how i
sum this movie up. It has it all. A good plot, humor, and some intense
action. The choreography in PA2 is magnificant. Who said sequels suck?!?
Master's Review: Yet another sequel with mind blowing action. With
an excellent fight at the end a must see movie and one to get for the
OJJE'S REVIEW: THIS MOVIE IS REALY
GOOD WACHING ITS QUIET FUNNY AND THE FIGHT AT THE END I COOL WHEN CHAN
EATS THOSE HOT PEPPERS AND ANOTHER GOOD BIT IS WHEN CHAN GOES FOR THE
BAD GUY HE ACCIDENTALLY JUMPED INTO THE WATER.
Mark's Review: This
film has possibly ones of the best fight sequences at the end of any
Jackie film, followed by a excellent stunt to finish the film. High on
my list of favourite JC films - a must see.
Peter A's Review: This is a fantastic sequel- check this film out. Not quite as good as the first, but the action and stunts are mind-blowing at times.
Joe's Review: Another one of those movies that the
more I watch it, the more I like it. Great fight scenes, with some slow
stuff in the middle.
Brendan's Review: Finally, I can review a great Chan flick. The stunts are even better than the first one, if you can believe that. The fights are probably not QUITE as good as the first, but it had a hell of a lot to live up to, and the fights are still great anyway. This is a fantastic movie, one you've got to see. It had a hard job living up to the first one, but this is still awesome- Great work, Jackie and team,
definitely.It makes a mockery of the "standard" action-movie sequel, as it's just so much better than
