"Jackie Chan in his greatest adventure ever!
"Jackie Chan and his bumbling sidekick are sent on a quest through Europe to find a mysterious treasure held by a shadowy organization of monks.
A very good martial arts film with a few flaws
This is one of Jackie Chan's best films. A good display of his acrobatics
and fight skills at the beginning of the film to fighting 4 woman with
heels at the end. This was my first Jackie Chan film I saw that made me
watch his other films.
The basic story is that an evil cult who wants all 5 pieces of the armor
god(I can't remember why they want it) knows only one person who is able
get the pieces, the "asian hawk"(Chan). They only have 2 pieces of the
armour and to get Jackie to get the other 3 pieces, they kidnap his former
girlfriend, lorelei(Kwan) who he still has feelings for, even though his
best friend,Alan(tam) is dating her. Jackie and Alan must work together to
try and find the armour and save her.
I recommend watching the original 94min version in Chinese(with english
subtitles of course) than the u.s. english dubbed 86min version. Also this
movie is where Jackie nearly died - Jumping to a tree on which the branch
broke and fell onto a rock.
A good humoreous martial art film with alright fight scenes and a not bad
plot. 8/10 for me. Recommended mainly for Jackie chan fans.
