Jackie Chan Christmas Part 2: Operation Condor

  In my last post I talked a little about Jackie Chan's Armour of God. Which is considered the second Asian Hawk film in the US, even though it's actually the first one. In this post I'm going to talk about Operation Condor, the actual second Asian Hawk film.

  Operation Condor follows Asian Hawk, aka Jackie, as he's hired by the United Nations to find Nazi vault from World War II filled with gold. He teams up with three women who seem to get into more trouble than help any situation, and a chase starts with multiple organizations fighting to be the ones to find the gold.

  This flick I enjoyed more than its predecessor. That might come from my reference point of watching Operation Condor before Armour of God, which could have possibly skewed my opinion. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed both films, just in my opinion I believe Operation Condor to be the better film. I was completely engulfed in the movie. I laughed, and/or chuckled at every little comical situation while still being impressed by each crazy stunt. It also felt more like a complete movie, with a more thought out story, and an ending that gave a better message than what I was really expecting from a movie like this.

  Overall I have to give Operation Condor a 4.5 out of 5. The fun, and great action sequences, along with the little comical additives that Jackie Chan put into this movie makes it worth while. This is a flick I plan on watching multiple times.
