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. Written by Matthew Stanfield <mattst@cogs.susx.ac.uk>

Crazy Credits

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

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 »

The Greatest Adventure of All Time

Armour of God 2 destroys anything Indiana Jones ever did as it is the most accomplished action adventure film I have ever seen and I am not joking. This has everything from bad villains, female leads, well three actually, great action, great adventure, plenty of explosions and some of the most funniest scenes you will ever see in adventure film like this. Apart from Rush Hour you wouldn't usually associate Jackie Chan with doing much comedy only martial arts but he does it like a pro and it doesn't stop till the very end. I can go on and on for years and years watching this and you never ever get bored as there is so much to take in and not enough time. As soon as it is finished you'll be dying to go back for more and watch it on repeat viewings.

Jackie Chan has made some of the best kick ass films in the world. I rate his films much better than Bruce Lee's and if you want to challenge that then all you have to do is watch this, the first Amour of God and Project A and you will see how accomplished his films really are.
