Jackie Chan's hair grows between shots (see goofs). This is because before he made 'Long xiong hu di', his hair was always long, but he cut it for this film. However, after his accident, when he fell from a tree onto rocks nearly killing himself, he considered having long hair to be lucky and grew it again. See more »
The scenes supposedly shot in some (probably) African country in the beginning of the movie were actually shot near Postojna castle, Slovenia, just like the castle-monastery part of the movie. The only difference is that those scenes were shot below the castle. See more »

This is one of Jackie Chan's best films. A good display of his acrobatics and fight skills at the beginning of the film to fighting 4 woman with high heels at the end. This was my first Jackie Chan film I saw that made me watch his other films.
The basic story is that an evil cult who wants all 5 pieces of the armor of god(I can't remember why they want it) knows only one person who is able to get the pieces, the "asian hawk"(Chan). They only have 2 pieces of the armour and to get Jackie to get the other 3 pieces, they kidnap his former girlfriend, lorelei(Kwan) who he still has feelings for, even though his best friend,Alan(tam) is dating her. Jackie and Alan must work together to try and find the armour and save her.
I recommend watching the original 94min version in Chinese(with english subtitles of course) than the u.s. english dubbed 86min version. Also this movie is where Jackie nearly died - Jumping to a tree on which the branch broke and fell onto a rock.
A good humoreous martial art film with alright fight scenes and a not bad plot. 8/10 for me. Recommended mainly for Jackie chan fans.
