This fast, entertaining adventure—directed by and starring the world's favorite action superstar, Jackie Chan—is the must-see prequel to the crowd pleasing hit Operation Condor.
Jackie is back and hotter than ever as a hard-hitting fortune hunter whose ex-girlfriend is kidnapped and held for ransom by an evil cult. Then, things really kick into high gear when her fiancé, an old friend of Jack's, turns to him for help in finding and delivering the kidnapper's lone demand: the priceless Armour of God. Performing his own death-defying stunts, there's no stopping Jackie as he—with the help of a sexy woman and a hilarious sidekick—attacks his mission with a lethal mix of pulse-pounding action and side-splitting humor.

UPDATE: If you want the actual uncut version of the film, with the missing scene and a few quick nude shots, then I recommend the excellent Blu-ray by Fortune Star (available here on Amazon). The sound and image quality is perfect. Too bad the DVD couldn't have been a conversion of the Blu-ray. My only issue is the subtitling. They are good, but not totally accurate to what is being said. This is really noticeable when the various actors speak occasional English words, like during the hotel scenes and fight. For example, the manager of the establishment says "Good sleep", yet the subtitles moronically show up as "Sleep well". There are a lot of screw-ups like that, so it makes me wonder how accurate the subtitles are concerning the Cantonese dialog translation. Nonetheless, if you want the classic film in superb clarity, excellent sound, and uncut, snag the Blu-ray release. You won't regret it.
As far as the film... Jackie Chan at his best. This is among my top 5 favorite Jackie Chan movies, and I recommend it to most folks who I suspect might enjoy either the martial arts stuntwork, or the fun adventure storyline.
The back of the cd case calls it a prequel to Operation Condor. I haven't gotten to watch the latter yet, so can't compare.
I deducted another star because as others have pointed out the dvd does not have great features. I don't mind not having a chinese sound track. If I want that I can buy a Hong Kong release. However, I get used to most dvd's having some kind of extra features. Of course, it was still worth the price. It's a nice addition to my slowly growing collection.
Jackie, if you get the chance to read this review I just want you to take care!
