This was the first Jackie Chan film I ever saw, and I loved every second of it. The film, which doesn't concentrate on plot as much as it probably should do, revolves around some European monks who steal several pieces from the Armour Of God, and fools Jackie into giving them the other pieces.
But ignore the plot, watch this for the excellent jokes, the amazing set piece action sequences topped off by the credible Jackie Chan.
Several scenes stand out the most. One being the scene where he is faced with 4 amazon women, and Jackie must defeat them all.
Overall, if you want to see a damn good Jackie Chan flick, but aren't interested in plot then you I urge you to see this film.
