Agent Jackie is hired to find WWII Nazi gold hidden in the Sahara desert. He teams up with three bundling women (the 3 stooges?) who are all connected in some way. However a team of mercenries have ideas on the ownership of the gold. A battle / chase ensues as to who gets there first. Lots of choregraphed Kung-Fu and quirky Chan humour. Written by

Although the title was brought over as Operation Condor, it is actually the sequel to the movie Operation Condor 2: The Armour of the Gods (Armour of God (1986).) Armour of the Gods was imported AFTER its sequel, and was given the confusing name Operation Condor 2, when Operation Condor should actually have been named Armour of the Gods II: Operation Condor.

During a pursuit, Jackie is on a motorcycle being chased by 4 black cars. At one point he gets trapped in an alley, and he drives back over the cars that blocked the alley behind him, smashing many windshields in the process. He then throws some red paint on one car's back window. The pursuit resumes in the streets and all the windshields are fine. See more »
A treat! Overflows with energy, humor, excitement, and jaw-dropping stunts (especially the motorcycle chase scene, during which Jackie takes time out to rescue a runaway baby carriage!). The climactic fight in the Nazi outpost is terrific. Just as much fun, though, are the comedy scenes, like those with the innocent waif (and her pet scorpion) Jackie's team encounters in the desert, or Jackie's impersonation of the folkloric Chinese "hopping vampire" - one of the funniest things I've ever seen in an action film. Didn't think much of "First Strike" but I recommend this one without reservation.
