This was the first Operation Condor movie, but for the U.S. release, this movie was titled "Operation Condor 2" because it was released after the second movie. A new musical score was created by Michael Wandmacher for this release, as well as an English dub (with the participation of Chan). See more »

Only two women took part in that contest

Depending on which cut of the film is shown, there are four possible end credit music tracks, derived from two different songs. Both Jackie Chan's "Flight of the Dragon" (aka "High Up On High") and Alan Tam's "Lorelei" were recorded both in Cantonese and English. The English version of "Flight of the Dragon" is more commonly heard in the American and UK English dubs from the 80s and 90s while the Cantonese version of "Lorelei" is more commonly heard in the Hong Kong releases of the film. The English rendition of "Lorelei" has appeared in the English dubbed Japanese cut, while the Cantonese version of "Flight of the Dragon" is the least common and rarest of the four end tracks.

Jackie Chan and his bumbling sidekick are sent on a quest through Europe to find a mysterious treasure held by a shadowy organization of monks.
I made the mistake of watching the sequel to this film first. They are both good, and it really makes little difference what order you watch them in (just as the "Police Story" films have little chronology). But it would have been nice to meet the character of Asian Hawk sooner.
I love the idea of Chan as an Indiana Jones type. Fighting people throughout China and Hong Kong (or the Bronx) is great, but this traveling the world stuff is even better. There are plenty of bizarre cultures ready to stop a kung fu fighter from stealing their priceless artifacts.
