Project A II (1987)
Director: Jackie Chan
Writer: Jackie Chan

Aside from the Wong Jing directed City Hunter, this sequel to 1983's Project A is my all-time favorite Jackie Chan film. I consider that the period from 1985 - 1989 is Chan's Golden Age in his filmmaking career. His films of the '90's haven't been as good in my opinion.

Project A II is available on DVD and is available at many retail and internet outlets. It is a good DVD with cast and crew backgrounds as well as original trailers for both films. The first film is available on DVD from Dimension Homevideo, has been re-edited from its original form and is not recommended.

In Project A II, Chan reprises his role as inspector Dragon Ma as he is assigned to control a corrupt police colleague of higher rank. Co-starring Maggie Cheung Man-Yuk and Rosamund Kwan Chi-Lam as young revolutionaries, Ma fights off corrupt cops, triad members, and the crazy pirates from the first film. This film has some of the most exquisite sequences Chan has created on film, including being handcuffed to his hapless superior while fighting off all of the bad guys.
