Jackie Chan directs himself and fellow martial arts superstar Sammo Hung in the action film Jackie Chan's Project A.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The chance to see Jackie and his team at the peak of their powers and the absence of a Chris Tucker or Owen Wilson."
‑ Keith H. Brown, Eye for Film
"There is not much difference between this film and most of Chan's other early films. There are the typical amazing stunts, comical situations and super thin plot."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Considered by many to be Chan's best picture, this action-comedy-adventure successfully mixes elements of Bruce Lee and Buster Keaton."
‑ , Film4
"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."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Terrific Jackie Chan outing."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"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."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
