Synopsis
Jackie Chan directs himself and fellow martial arts superstar Sammo Hung in the action film Jackie Chan's Project A. Chan plays a 19th century Coast Guard office who must defend Hong Kong's borders from a variety of smugglers and undesirables. As is usually the case, Chan performs all of his own stunts during the film. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

This movie is fabulous. It's like a musical with fight scenes instead of songs. The costumes are hilarious, and the acting is way, way over the top. It is ultra-ultra choreographed. This is the epitome of Jackie Chan's (non-drunken) martial arts style.

I'm happy with the dubbing, too. This is a movie to be watched, not read. If you're only going to ever watch one Jackie Chan movie, make it Legend of the Drunken Master. If you're going to watch two, watch this one. (And skip the American crap. Jackie Chan movies need a believable plot like a fish needs a bicycle.)

Classic that doesn't age well by hneline1 March 10, 2002 - 10:34 AM PST

This film may be a "classic" for Jackie Chan fans, but the characters were one dimensional, the plot twists were fun but didn't make sense, the fight sequences seemed too choreographed, the slapstick seemed strained, too many people got hurt (then again, what else would I expect from a martial arts film?). I think this is a good film for Jackie Chan buffs. However, I liked Jackie's later works much better -- they just seem better put together. Also, don't know if this makes a difference, but this DVD is dubbed into English and there was no option to switch to the original language with subtitles.
