Critic Reviews for Jackie Chan's Project A ('A' gai wak) (Pirate Patrol)
Famous for the scene in which the acrobatic Chan, cornered by pirates, is left hanging by a clock's minute hand, this is a rumbustiously entertaining caper set in Hong Kong at the turn of the century.
Considered by many to be Chan's best picture, this action-comedy-adventure successfully mixes elements of Bruce Lee and Buster Keaton.
Terrific Jackie Chan outing.
The chance to see Jackie and his team at the peak of their powers and the absence of a Chris Tucker or Owen Wilson.
This one has even less use for plot than Armour of God, and displays much more intricately choreographed slapstick, demonstrating that Chan sees himself as much a physical comedian as a martial arts action star.
Shot before Chan had broken every bone in his body twice, the spry Chan had such agility and quickness it's truly frightening to watch.
Audience Reviews for Jackie Chan's Project A ('A' gai wak) (Pirate Patrol)
My hat off to the good ol glory days of Jackie and the HK film industry. Before Nicholas Tse and other assorted of canto-pop kids were doing their crappy films there was Jackie, Sammo and Yuen Biao doing fun as hell films like this one. Great stunts, great humour, great fights, what else you might need to know? One of the jewels on Jackie's filmography, the type of films that made him a martial arts icon. Sammo and Biao are of course equally impressive here. Rad villian too, could have been in more scenes.
Funny & creative collaboration of the trio - JC, SH, YB!
Period martial arts fun that unites Jackie Chan with a slim-line Sammo Hung, battling pirates and corrupt policemen in 19th century Hong Kong. The usual slapstick and beautifully choreographed fight scenes make for hugely entertaining chop socky fun. But once again, it's dubbed!
