Storyline

Agent Jackie is hired to find World War II Nazi gold hidden in the Sahara desert. He teams up with three bungling women (the three stooges?) who are all connected in some way. However, a team of mercenries have ideas on the ownership of the gold. A battle and chase ensues as to who gets there first. Lots of choregraphed Kung Fu and quirky Chan humor.

Alternate Versions

Originally released in 1990 and available on video in the USA under the title "Armour of God II", this Jackie Chan vehicle was re-released theatrically in 1997 by Miramax as "Operation Condor" in a newly-dubbed version to capitalize on Chan's popularity in the USA after "Rumble in the Bronx" and "Supercop". This re-release version has a new music score composed by Stephen Endelman and is cut by 20+ min. from the original Hong Kong version. See more »

Jackie Chan does wonders with a big budget
7 September 1998 | by loco-2See all my reviews

This may be the most entertaining Jackie Chan experience ever. Filmed all over the world with a huge budget and abundance of energy, Armor of God 2 is a fast, funny, thrilling film. Despite the obvious Indiana Jones plot, Chan amazes us once again by risking his life so we can be entertained for two hours. Chan's directing skills are almost as exceptional as his physical skills in the way he captures the action from brilliant wide angles that display the danger of his action. A scene where Chan flees on motorcycle from the villains through the cramped city streets is one of the most exciting chase scenes on film. Chan gambles with his life in every stunt and action sequence making for an exuberant film that must be seen to fully appreciate Hong Kong action cinema.
