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.
Two Chinese friends, who operate a food truck in Barcelona, Spain, use their martial arts expertise to help their private investigator friend protect the pickpocket Sylvia, who's been targeted by a ruthless gang.
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.

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.Written by

When the film was screened for distribution executives, one got so enthused he ran from the screening room looking for a phone so he could put in a bid for the distribution rights. He did not know that his main competitor placed a bid from inside the screening room on a cellular phone. See more »
When the sword is being auctioned, the auctioneer says it was used by King Arthur during the Crusades. Arthur is said to have lived in the 5th to 6th century, which was about 600 years before the first Crusade. 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 »
The title and end credit sequences are different in the original Hong Kong version and the export version: original Hong Kong version has the Golden Harvest Logo, the Golden Way Films logo, the title credits integrated in the film (while Jackie is flying) and the end credits written in Cantonese and partly English. Export version has no logos, the title credits run over a black background and the end credits are written completely in English. See more »
...but I've only got 1000 words, so I'll keep it brief. Okay, so some of the early exposition scenes are a little boring and some other parts are a little dumb, but otherwise, this is Chan...and he is DA MAN! Wild, crazy, and ever-inventive martial arts and action sequences more than make up for the fact that the plot is only semi-existent. The opening "Indiana Jones" parody...the innkeeper...the incompetent terrorists...the motorcycle chase...the "native dance"...the wind tunnel fight...and without a doubt the coolest car door ever seen (you'll know what I mean)...in summary, if you're a fan of slapstick humor mixed perfectly with Jackie's trademark martial arts, you can't go wrong with this film!
