"The Armour of God"
Directed by Jackie Chan
Filmed on location in
Yugoslavia, Austria, France and Hong Kong, this fast-moving vehicle for
comedy/action star Jackie Chan nearly cost him his life when a relatively
simple stunt misfired. Chan plays an adventurer who steals pieces of a
prized medieval armour set to sell to rich collectors. But these ancient
artifacts are also sought by a criminal cult which will stop at nothing to
obtain them. When the cult kidnaps Jackie's former love, Jackie comes up
with even more spectacular ways to save the armour and the girl. One of
Chan's most thrilling and entertaining films (and with him, that's really
saying something). Cantonese with English subtitles.
Hong Kong. 100 minutes.
