Jackie Chan’s Project A / Project A Part 2 (Blu-ray)

Eureka Entertainment is re-issuing Jackie Chan’s action-packed Project A (1983) and Project A Part 2 (1987) on 2K Blu-ray restorations. Jackie Chan directs and stars in both of these films.

A pair of incredible action-adventure extravaganza’s from the legendary Jackie ChanProject A and Project A Part II make their long-overdue debut on Blu-ray in the UK from stunning 2K restorations. 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 delivers one of the most stunt-packed, rip-roaring action-adventures of all time.
