Operation Condor (1991)

(aka: Armour of God II: Operation Condor)



Reviews and Comments

Jackie Chan is at his silliest in Armour of God II: Operation Condor, which was just called Operation Condor when released in the U.S. Just as First Strike was Chan's answer to James Bond, the two Armour of God films were his answer to Indiana Jones.

The film is so silly that it may put off those with a low threshold for goofiness. But that's all part of the fun. Again, Chan's speed and agility in stunts and combat is mind-boggling, and there's gobs of action to show it off. As usual, there's outtakes just prior to the end credits which feature both humorous and painful mishaps during shooting.

Finally, as with all of Jackie Chan's films, see it letterboxed, or you'll be lucky to follow half the action -- although Operation Condor isn't as bad in that respect as some of his others.
