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 »

Funny Chan Film.

Rated PG-13 for martial arts action, some shootings, and sensuality Quebec Rating:G Canadian Home Video Rating:14A

Operation Condor is a very funny Jackie Chan movie which is the sequel to the 1987 film Armor Of God.However when released in America they released this film first so the 1987 film Armor Of God is called Operation Condor 2 in America.I remember renting this film on VHS a very long time ago but I did see it about one year ago on UPN.This film has all the Jackie Chan charm.Great fight scenes,stunts and action but also lots of slapstick comedy to keep you happy.This film is about Jackie Chan and two other people who try to find hidden Nazi gold but others want it as well.Operation Condor is a funny and good film and I recommend it.
