Michelle Yeoh is sent from the Mainland to HK to assist with investigation of a major robbery attempt. Unfortunately, neither Yeoh nor director Stanley Tong recaptured the magic of Chief Yang that made “Supercop” unique. Yeoh is certainly proficient in the physical aspects of the part, but in “Project S” her character seems unacceptably gullible and vulnerable while on plain-clothes assignment to HK. How could such an experienced senior police officer be so readily deceived by her ex-boyfriend (Yu Rong Guang). One might also have expected rather plain, severe attire in place of the high fashion clothing featured in “Project S.” Despite these drawbacks, the action moves along at a reasonable pace as Yu Rong Guang’s character leaves his Mainland job as a security guard and makes his fortune illegally in HK. Together with a group of his ex-army comrades he plans a major robbery of a bank vault.
