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
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 »
Jackie's hair grows between shots in the beginning between stealing the sword and sliding down the hill. This was due to an accident he suffered while filming early scenes for the film, which left him with a small hole in one side of his head. His hair has remained reasonably long in most of his subsequent films. See more »
Who gave you the courage to be killed here?
I obey my god's every command. He looks after all my needs. I always say yes to him. Never no.
Who is your god? What is your religion?
I believe in a powerful religion. The name of my god is... money.
Prepare to be sacrified to your money god.

Jackie Chan is an Indiana Jones type adventurer. We first see him taking a sword from a primitive tribe. OK it could be seen as culturally insensitive, but let it go. Enjoy it for its fun.
An evil organization of monks wants what's called the Armour of God. To get Jackie to search for the Armour, they kidnap an old friend played by Rosamund Kwan. Rosamund's boyfriend is Alan. Together with Jackie and Lola Forner, the three travel to find the Armour.
The middle is terribly slow. The jokes don't really work. Lola Forner is a stiff actress and has no chemistry with Jackie Chan. And they badly needed the chemistry to make any of it work.
Luckily once they get to the monks' hideout. The action picks up again. Jackie has some fun playing with a big stick. It saves the movie from being a complete disaster.
