Blu-ray release: ‘Project A’ & ‘Project A Part II’

By   |  Aug 3, 2018

Eureka Entertainment are bringing the Hong Kong martial arts action comedies, ‘Project A‘ (A計劃) and ‘Project A Part II‘ (A計劃續集) to UK Blu-ray on October 22, 2018.

Set in the 19th century, the films are incredible action-adventure extravaganzas that blend martial artistry, death defying stunts and physical comedy in a way that has yet to be matched. The cast includes Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, Yuen BiaoKwan Hoi-SanDick Wei, MarsMaggie Cheung, Johnny Wang Lung-Wei, Bill TungRosamund Kwan, and Carina Lau.

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.
