underrated thrilling epic action masterpiece


This film deserves more recognition, it is pure entertainment and motion picture brilliance with Hong Kong stunts triumphing over the masses of hollywood action crapfests tha continue to be released.

The unholy trinity of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao is simply brilliant to watch. Superb stunts and sequences, Project A deserves more praise and proper cult status.

THEY WILL KILL US ALL WITHOUT MERCY!!!!

It's more than that. This film pretty much changed the face of martial arts films forever.

I think is underrated because Miramax crapped out a POS DVD without the "no-goods" on the closing credit and Fouled up soundtrack.

Definately one of the funniest movies from the amazing trio. The action and plot were also amazing.

All three of the 'brothers' films are fantastic, but it's hard to say which is best; they each have element which make them truly masterful.

Project A has the clocktower fall
Wheels on Meals the first (and some would say best) Benny Urquidez fight
And Dragons Forever has all three of the brothers fighting each other

and it reflects some history about EARLY colonised hong kong:
people always call the police "big-headed green coats"
three components in police force: british, indians & chinese
serious pirate problem

ps. really like the clothes & settings in the film
