A pair of incredible action-adventure extravaganzas from the legendary Jackie Chan, “Project A” and “Project A Part II” make their long overdue debut on Blu-ray in the UK from brand new 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.

Presented from brand new 2K restorations and fully uncut, Eureka Classics is proud to present “Jackie Chan’s Project A and Project A Part II” for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a special Limited Edition Box Set packed with extra content.

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
