Film Series: Operation Condor

1991. Hong Kong. Dir: Jackie Chan. With Chan, Carol Cheng. 92 min.

Jackie’s treasure hunter / U.N. agent scours the Sahara for Nazi gold, but his “Indiana Chan” shtick is just a flimsy excuse for non-stop action comedy shenanigans and gasp-inducing daredevilry. CONDOR contains some of Chan’s most elaborate and enjoyable stunts, as he dodges cars, tumbles over a mountain in an inflato-ball, and fights inside a wind tunnel with a giant fan.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
