Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Jackie Chan plays an ex-singer-turned-fortune-hunter, who's ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by an evil cult. Her finace, an old friend of Jackie's, turns to him for help - as the kidnappers intended... lots of cooool, Jackie style action and laughs. Written by
While filming the stunt where he leaps from a wall onto a tree, the branch Jackie Chan grabbed a hold of broke and he hit his head on a rock, nearly killing him and leaving him with a permanent thimble-sized hole on the right side of his head. The fall also left him hard of hearing in one ear. 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 »

What's that sound?
It's not an ice cream-truck...

During the end credits, there is a showcase of outtakes from the film, including the famous stunt during which Jackie Chan nearly got killed. See more »
This is the movie that almost got Jackie killed. Actually I'm amazed that he's still alive after all the daredevil stunts he's done.
The evil cult is after the remaining three pieces of armour of god. Hawk (Jackie Chan) is an ex singer turned treasure hunter. His old acquaintance Alan (Alan Tam) comes to ask him to save his girlfriend Lora (Rosamund Kuan) who got kidnapped by the evil cult. He asks for armour of god that Jackie recently recovered from native tribes. Collector of armour of god's daughter joins Hawk and Alan on the quest for the remaining armour of god.
The middle part of this film is boring. It's a filler to give Jackie time to recover from his injury. Then comes the exciting ending. So fast forward through the middle if it's too slow for you.
Famous Hong Kong rock band Wynners appears at the opening with their name changed to the "Losers". Premise being that Jackie used to be the singer of that band. The real life singer of Wynners of course is Hawk's (Jackie) old friend Alan (Alan Tam). This is why there're Alan Tam songs inserted in this movie.
There's this crazy stunt where the car Jackie and Alan are in flies across the freeway followed by a motorcycle. Stunt like this rarely shows up even in James Bond movies, but happens frequently in Jackie Chan movies. Towards the end of the movie I see an explosion going off just few feet away from the actor and him getting blown away from middle of the stair case down to the ground. That's got to hurt.
Jackie Chan's father is shown for the first time at the end of the movie looking down on him after he got injured.
It's a good movie that gets better towards the end. The combination of Chan, Tam, and Kuan works in this movie that adds different elements to this movie.
