sub-par Jackie Chan movie, and quite comparing it with Indiana Jones!
Some of the reviews here compare this movie with Indiana Jones. The movie has exactly one thing in common with Indiana Jones; it is about a treasure hunter. That's it. No exotic locations, no hunting hidden treasures, just the same job description.
In God of Armour, a group of maniacs decide to kidnap Jackie Chan's girlfriend because they think he can get some items they want and he still cares about her. (It turns out he really doesn't, and has to be talked into a rescue attempt.) She is kidnapped in an insanely murderous rampage, and one wonders immediately why, with that level of ruthlessness, gun power, and poor planning (why kill dozens of people to kidnap one woman? It's not like she's an inaccessible princess) did they not simply go after the items themselves? Chan is unnecessary.
So, the story is stupid, the characters are bland, the humor is forced, the direction is flat. But what about the fights? With Jackie Chan movies, it's always about the action.
The action didn't thrill me. What I want from Jackie Chan is Buster Keaton-influenced slapstick, and there's just a little of that here. There's more straight ahead martial arts. I just found the fight scenes uninspired.
It's watchable, but that's about it.
