Plenty fun: as per the Jackie Chan standard, it's total nonsense, but unpretentiously entertaining and occasionally ingenious. [Blu-ray]

The film hits escape velocity, moving straight from one phenomenal set piece to another, with no room between to catch your breath.

There's little action during most of the film besides a so-so car chase and unambitous fights. Still, the film's finale is action packed and hilarious, as Jackie faces a monastery packed with bad guys.

Overflowing with Chan's trademark stunt setpieces (not to mention his own goony brand of extremely broad slapstick), the film's a dazzler...

An excellent example of Chan at his comic/kick-'em-up best, blending elements of both James Bond and Indiana Jones, along with the requisite zany fights and stunts.

Audience Reviews for Armour of God (Long xiong hu di) (Operation Condor 2)

Jackie Chan tries his hand at an Indiana Jones style adventure with this little action romp that he also directed.

Chan plays a treasure hunter named Jackie who must rescue his ex-girlfriend who gets kidnapped by a group of Satan worshippers seeking pieces of armor said to date back to the Crusades that also have mystical powers and qualities about them. In tow are a goofy sidekick as well as the daughter of the antique collector Jackie does dealings with.

Okay, so right off the bat this film is basically just a fun goofy action romp that's not trying to be art. That's cool with me. It's just a nice little tribute to IJ and adventure yarns of the past, but with Chan's trademark sense of humor, and of course, awesome fights and stunts.

Chan is known for taking risks and often getting hurt, but this is the film that almost took his life. The stunt was a simple, straightforward, and rather tame one for him: jump onto a tree branch. However, during the jump, he slipped, fell 40 feet, and landed on his head, resulting in a skull fracture. He still has a plastic plug in his skull to this day as a result. And for that, I gotta give the man many many kudos.

The plot is silly, but again, that's not what the film is really here for. It just wants to be an action spectacle, and that's what it does, and does well. The stunts are cool, the fights are well choreographed and executed, and the film's got a great sense of humor to boot.

If you want a piece of fluff, albeit a decently well made one, then definitely give this a look.

The film that almost kills Jackie, watch it mostly for the final act, and the chase sequence. Some good of locations, but Alan Tam is highly annoying in his sidekick role. On the good side, Jackie beats some monks, and rides a very rad 80s car.
