Steve Tartalia was set to play a major villain but fell out of favor with Jackie Chan when he crashed a crew member's motorcycle, having taken it without permission. Chan personally demoted Tartalia to a smaller role. See more »

The ending credits in Chan movies show outtakes (footage not used in the film). They often show Chan to be a perfectionist. See more »
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 »
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.
