Armour of God (1986)

(aka: Operation Condor 2: The Armour of the Gods)



Reviews and Comments

Let's get this straight. This movie, released in the U.S. on video under the title Operation Condor 2: The Armour of the Gods is not the second but the first in the series. The "real" English language title is Armour of God, and its sequel, Armour of God II: Operation Condor, was released in the U.S. as just Operation Condor.

Armour of God, a slight take-off on Indiana Jones, is an early but typical Jackie Chan vehicle. Chan's humor and affable personality carry most of the show. The spectacular action sequences, save for one in the beginning, don't start until late in the movie, but they're some of the most blindingly fast action scenes Chan has ever done. If there had been more action and less belaboring the Maguffin of a plot, it would have been better.
