Overview

Jackie Chan takes a break from police thrillers featuring kung-fu and wild stunts to star and direct this action-adventure yarn featuring kung-fu and wild stunts. Chan plays Jackie, aka the Asian Hawk, an Indiana Jones-style adventurer looking to make a fortune finding exotic antiquities. After discovering a mysterious sword in Africa, a band of Satan-worshipping monks kidnap Jackie's ex-girlfriend Lorelei (Rosamund Kwan), demanding as ransom the sword and other pieces of the legendary Armour of God -- a reportedly magical outfit dating back to the Crusades. He manages to get the objects in question from wealthy collector Bannon (Bozidar Smiljanic), and together with Bannon's daughter May (Lola Forner) and, of course, Hong Kong rock star Alan (Alan Tam), the three head out to rescue Lorelei. When they do, they discover too late that she has been brainwashed. She drugs Alan, taking him and the armor back to the monastery. Jackie is forced to take on an army of satanic monks single-handedly. This film is perhaps best remembered as the shoot that almost killed Jackie Chan. While jumping from one tree to another, he slipped and plunged almost 40 feet landing on his head. True to hallowed Hong Kong tradition, that outtake along with dozens of others is included at the end of the film. This film was released in the States under the misleading title Operation Condor 2: The Armour of the Gods, even though the supposed original Operation Condor was made four years afterwards.

Jackie Chan's Armour of God is one of my favorite action movies.The story goes as Jackie goes into some ruins in African jungle for treasure hunt, fighting against a group of evil monks on his way. What makes this movie more exciting than Indiana Jones is the extraordinal fighting action played by Jackie Chan, who is one of the world best martial artists. His sense of humor adds a nice laugh to the story, too. Those of you who have been tired of blood-thirsty Hollywood action movies, try this one and you'll be absorbed in the amazing world of Asian action movies!

This is one of the best action movies I've ever seen. The story goes as Jackie makes a venture into a ruin in a jungle for a treasure hunt, fighting against a group of evil monks on his way. Sounds similar to Indiana Jones, you can say. However, what makes this film more exciting than Indiana Jones is the extraordinary action scenes choreographed and played by Jackie Chan, the world best martial artist in the film industry. His sense of humor adds good laughs to the story, too. Those of you who are tired of Hollywood action movies with only guns and blood, try this film, experience its pleasant aftertaste, and you'll get absorbed in the fantastic world of Asian action films!

I absolutely loved this movie! It was fun, funny, a great escape, and Jackie singing an incredibly upbeat theme song! Cant wait to add this to my collection.
