Jackie is hired to help the UN find Nazi gold hidden in Sahara. He's accompanied from Spain by 2 (later 3) cute women. As there are others wanting the gold, lots of kung fu fighting and comedy follows.
Dragon is now transferred to be the police head of Sai Wan district, and has to contend with a gangster kingpin, anti-Manchu revolutionaries, some runaway pirates, Manchu Loyalists and a corrupt Police Superintendent.
Two Chinese friends, who operate a food truck in Barcelona, Spain, use their martial arts expertise to help their private investigator friend protect the pickpocket Sylvia, who's been targeted by a ruthless gang.
Jackie Chan plays an ex-singer-turned-fortune-hunter, whose ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by an evil cult. Her fiance, 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
The musical sequence with the band "The Losers" is a spoof of the Hong Kong rock band "The Wynners". The band's members include Alan Tam, Anthony Chan, and Kenny Bee, all of whom appear in this movie. See more »
In many of the wide shots of the chase sequence, especially after the explosion, you can clearly see that only one person (the stunt driver) sits in the car. See more »
I'll go with you.

Why are you looking at me like that? You think women are good for nothing. I was runner-up in last year's European Women shooting, you'll be safe with me.
Only two women took part in that contest

The original ending theme in the Asia version (China and Japan) is the song "lorelei" sung by Alan Tam and in America the theme was "Flight of the Dragon" Sung by Jackie Chan. See more »
Japanese theatrical cut (released on laserdisc by Pony Canyon) is based on the uncut Hong Kong version, but features the full original English dub. This also includes the English version of Alan Tam's end theme "Lorelei". Aside from this, there is an alternate outtakes montage during the end credits. See more »
This is one of the oldies that made us love Jackie Chan with his regular kung-fu, comedy and stunts, making everything at his reach a weapon, this Indiana Jones-style movie had Chan play the Asian Hawk who hunts for relics and sells them.
Chan came close to death in this film during a relative routine stunt; he leaped onto a tree from a ledge, but the branch he grabbed snapped, sending Chan plummeting and cracking his skull.
The movie had cool stunts as usual, and the Mitsubishi car used by Chan was so odd and grand to watch, we know very well that he does all his own stunts, but I don't think that includes car stunts.
Chan's character was a little unrealistic, but after a while you get use to it. Like in all Chan movies the scenery is used to its peak and the movie set a record at its time for the highest grossing movie in Hong Kong.
Jackie Chan has kinda dropped lately in his movie profile; before a Jackie Chan is coming out we expect laughs and stunts, but lately there have just been a shadow of what they use to be, his latest was 1911, which holds a 9% approval in rotten tomatoe, showed us that Chan is losing his edge.
The Forbidden kingdom with fellow martial art star Jet Lee was also not much of a success.
But going back to the movie, Armour of God, where Jackie was involved in saving his former girl and now his friend's girl friend from kidnappers who want him to help get the two remaining piece of the armour of God, since they already possess three.
Chan new the collector who owned the remaining two armour that the kidnappers wanted. So Jackie, his friend and the collector's daughter went with the remaining two set of the armour to use to save the girl and then steal all the complete 5 set armour for the collector.
All in all, it was fun watching the movie all over again and I advice that you try to do same.
