Armour of God – Blu Ray SE Specifications. 88 Films

88 Films in the UK have released the specifications for the special edition Blu ray of Armour of God starring Jackie Chan.

Unquestionably the most popular martial arts actor of his generation, superstar Jackie Chan features in this mid 80s Indiana Jones-esque romp which mixes Hollywood thrills with Hong Kong-style action.

Former musician Asian Hawk (Chan) becomes embroiled in a dangerous quest to seek out the last three parts of lost treasure the Armour of God, in order to save his ex-band mate’s girlfriend from the clutches of a ruthless cult.

Though heavily inspired by Spielberg’s movie, the style and stunt sequences are all delivered with the star’s custom brand of slapstick and physical prowess. All the elements come together in a pleasing assortment of comedy, misadventure and gloriously realised action set pieces. A must for all Jackie Chan collectors.
