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.

The export version of this film runs approx. 10 minutes shorter (cut were story and comedy scenes, e.g. the band scene and the dream sequence). In addition, the song at the end is sung in English instead of Cantonese. See more »
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.
