When martial arts wizard Jackie Chan is in top form, no movie star on earth is more fun to watch. Armour of God never achieves the beautiful, smooth flow of continuous movement that distinguishes Project A--Part 2. In fact, it feels like a botched international coproduction, short on common sense and plot momentum, long on Eastern European scenery and huggermugger intrigue. The wispy premise is the first danger sign: all the segments of an ancient suit of armor have to be located and reassembled, so that the suit can be used to pay the ransom on a kidnapped girl--Jackie's old flame. (He competes for her affections with a chum played by heartthrob pop star Alan Tam.) The creepy Aryan bad guys are hiding out in a mountain retreat in Yugoslavia, which is stormed with gusto. A long second-act interlude of door-slamming bedroom farce is a dreary drag, but there's some good body-slamming action toward the end--especially when Jackie squares off with a trio of black female body builders in S/M leather. With the dashing Rosamund Kwan (the glamorous revolutionary of Project A) as Laura Lai. --David Chute
