Twelve bronze heads representing the Chinese zodiac were looted during the Opium War. JC aka Asian Hawk (Jackie Chan) and his action team are trying to recover them. With replicas of the heads, they travel to Paris where some of the bronzes are being auctioned. Disguised as a National Geographic photographer, he infiltrates a protest group led by Coco trying to repatriate stolen antiquities. Asian Hawk is a Jackie Chan character from the 80's in the Armour of God movies. It's not the greatest of writing but it's just simple fun action adventure. It is very much HK comedy style from the 80's and 90's. Jackie is able to excel in his outrageous stunt work. He's still fun and still half man, half amazing. It probably needs a more steady presence from a head villain and one super henchman which all good Bond movies deserve. Instead, there is a myriad of villains like The Warriors including a Pirates of the Caribbean gang. For example, Oliver Platt could have been that head villain but he only has a short cameo. Jackie fans will find a fine silly Jackie movie. Others may not appreciate the appeal.
