Armour of God II: Operation Condor (1990)

[Jackie Chan, Shoko Ikeda]

Original title was Feiying Gaiwak. Jackie is a talented special agent who is used for dangerous undercover work. The government employs him to try and find some gold that the Nazis allegedly left in Northern Africa 40 years ago. He soon discovers that he is not the only one searching for the gold; there are people willing to kill to get their hands on it.

Few of the stunts are close to juggling, but jugglers might better appreciate some of them than would the general public. In one early scene, a baddie's gun has been dropped on a rug. The baddie runs to get it; Jackie pulls the rug out from under him, shakes the rug sending the gun flying through the air, jumps over the guy to catch the gun in flight, and lands holding the gun at the baddie's head. About 1.5 seconds altogether. Check it out!
