Jackie returns as the Asian Hawk – this time hunting lost Nazi
gold in the Sahara desert. Joining
him for the trip is a trio of Chan babes – Chinese comedienne Do Do
Cheng, Japanese cutie Shoko Ikeda and westerner Eva Cobo Garcia.
That’s all you need to know!
Review: After Miracles
flopped, Jackie was in need of a hit.
What better way to restore the world’s faith in Jackie Chan
than a sequel to his highest grossing film of all, Armour of God?
Although it bears little resemblance to it’s prequel – no
Rosamund Kwan, Lola Forner or Alan Tam – Operation Condor exceeds the
original in every way. The film moves along swiftly, and hardy a minute goes by
without something going on.
Highlights include a motorbike jump off a
harbour, where Jackie
grabs a ship’s cargo net in mid air, and a fantastic finale in the
abandoned Nazi base. As
well as a gripping set of stunts and fights, it also includes a
brilliantly devised end-piece in a wind tunnel.
Jackie and his crew really went to town on this, and it shows.
Every physical gag is carried off perfectly, with combatants
struggling with zero gravity and each other to win the upper hand.
Altogether, probably the most action packed and exciting movie of
the nineties, although it proved so costly to make ($80,000,000 HK
dollars – the most expensive film made in Hong Kong at the time) and
took so long to film (going through two directors and three continents)
that Golden Harvest couldn’t hope to turn a profit from it.
Sadly, Jackie’s free reign to do whatever he pleased was at an
end, and the company insisted that he speed up production and cut his
costs. But at least his
‘golden age’ ended with a bang!
KUNG FU SUPERCOP's Review: Operation Condor(1990)is the sequel to the film armor of god.In this one Chan starts of in a very funny scene when he takes some tresure things.They do not get mad but When he drank some water they told him that he had to marry this fat lady and he escaped in a bubble.Then he goes and sees some people and they tell them their mission.He has to go with this girl on it.Then Chan goes into someones house and saves a girl(who is the granddaughter of the person who hid the gold) from these people who want the nazi gold by taking off the girls towel and fighting them.Then she decides to come along.They stay in a hotel where some bad guys also look for them.Then Jackie chan fights the 2 bad guys.Then the girl takes a machine gun and shoots it everywhere scaring them off.They wanted the key. The ending is where there is this big fan and it makes Chan fly.I rented this movie 2,3 or 4 years ago and then I saw it on UPN.Its a very funny movie that fans of Chan should see.
Funky Dragon's Review: Another hillarious jackie chan movie.In this one jackie teams up with 2 girls.Some men want nazi gold from one of the girls.One of my favorite parts was when jackie chan was flying and saying superman! I have not seen a jackie chan movie that i hated.I saw this also on UPN(aka SBK)If you liked armour of god watch it and if you like jackie chan you should check it out.I first actually rented this movie.
Anonymous Review: Wow!! This was a very good sequel to Armour of God. I reckon this film was much better than the 1st movie. The Motorcycle chase was wicked & Jackie spoke like a real American guy. The flying scene in that tunnel was well fun and its worth watching this film. This is one of my best JC collection.
Emos Tayong's Review: This is the best of all time Jackie's movies. Who said Jackie is the best asian actor on the globe?? I strongly recommend any one who come accross this movie to watch it from srart to end and tell me at the end of the movie if jackie doesn'y possess a lil' bit extra ordinary gift from God?? The fights are Heavy, the story line is awesome and all is just the BEST ever. Jackie is just the best on the globe. The final fight at the wind tunnel was one of Jackie's best fights i watched in all his movies. I will wish to see an Amour of God part 3 because the amour of God Series is the best of all.
MadSci's Review: This movie had a few kinks as some key parts of the story is missing, But the Jaw Dropping fight scenes and the slapstick comedy held the movie up. If your a Jackie Chan fan, you must see this movie. Jackie Chan is on the edge with the incredible fights scenes at the Nazi base that is covered by the hot sands of the sahara desert and at the small room in the large hotel own by a cookie man that really likes money. Jackie Chan's 3 female friends that travel with him to find the gold also do some little action to keep the group alive. This is great entertainment
Alexander's Review: Very good! Nice fights and i like Jackies kick ups in the resturant scene...
Airk's Review: It should be noted that I am reviewing the US
release, with a few minutes cut (only a few, supposedly), Jackie's voice
is self-dubbed, and the soundtrack was made in America.
Agent Smokums' Review: This was quite possibly the funniest movie I've ever seen in my life. Did anyone notice the guy who got his neck broken during the motorbike stunt? He drives through the warehouse and someone gets knocked over by a car, performs a forward flip and lands really painfully on his neck.
The Drunken Master's Review: This is a good movie, with plenty of action and adventure, the sequel to the excellent Jackie Chan Armour of God, but still, there's nothing special. All his other movies have a special feel to them, but this one just feels dull! Anyway, a good film. Don't start with it, though.
Richard's Review: I first saw this
movie during a kung-fu night on television. After seeing the name in the
TV Mag "Operation Condor: Armor of God II", I really didn't
expect much. Then I saw it was Jackie Chan...
And that was the beginning of my huge obsession
with the great man, and because of that, this movie will always be one
of my personal favorites. Anyway, onto the review!
This is a movie for those who just want a good
time. Don't worry too much about the plot and how the scenes fit
together, because that isn't important. There's very little waiting
between each action scene which makes for entertaining viewing the whole
way through without getting bored (Which is what plagued Armour of God),
and not only that, but all the set-pieces are great. This is one of his
few comedy films where his humour doesn't get in the way of the fights,
but rests comfortably alongside the action in the form of his three
female co-stars. I prefer it that way, as you get all the laughs you
want without them ruining a brilliant kung-fu battle. Another thing is
that the humour is less Asian than most of his movies, and so it's
rather quite funny! The hotel scene especially. The only time humour
slips into the action is during the final scene, which gets rather
annoying since I wanted a proper final battle. Operation Condor more
than makes up for it by making that last scene hilarious and therefore,
The fighting moves performed are nifty, though not
JC's best. But the fights themselves are superb. They are fast, stylish
and easy to follow so you won't get confused on who's hitting who. There
are a few really quick scenes where Jackie dispatches two adversaries
(And disarms them at the same time to be extra cheeky), and even though
they are short, they work well and deploy some stylish quick-thinking
which only an action hero can do. Nay, which only a Jackie Chan action
hero can do.
The music is a bit of a let-down, but I've only
watched the dubbed version, which apparently has different music to the
original eastern release. When the final fighting started, I wanted a
more epic tune in the background. But I'm just fussy, and it won't
really take any enjoyment away for you, I'm sure.
Joes' Review: O yeah baby! Some nice comedy and awwwesome action make this a saweett movie. Sorry bout that.
Tinnman44's Review: Jackie Chan is the funny guy I ever
seen. When I watch Operation Condor,
Adam JC fan's Review: Jackie Chan was very funny in this movie. The story line was great. The ending fight ( in the big fan room ) was excellent.
Brendan's Review: This has nothing to do with the original, but is a great movie nonetheless. The stunts, particularly the fan-room scene, are great. You'll have a few laughs in this one, and the fights are awesome. It doesn't quite match the original, but is an awesome movie anyway.
Review: The Acting from Jackie, Yes, but from "ALL" the others, No.
Jackie is a good actor and all the others in all his movie is so bad so you dont think of
Jackie's acting. But this movie is still so good...and I dont care if the acting is bad...The rest of the movie is so good...the Action,stunts and comedy.
You will love this movie if dont are one of this "oh no, the
dialouge" cause it is dubbed.
