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.
Identical twins are separated at birth, one becoming a streetwise mechanic, and the other an acclaimed classical concert conductor. Finally meeting in adulthood, they each become mistaken for the other and entangled in each other's world.

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 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.
