"Operation Condor" was made during the perfect time period, as Jackie Chan had enough experience as a director, his star power allowed for massive budgets and he was still young enough to defy God and gravity with his jaw dropping stunts. It was the perfect storm for greatness.

I don't think "Armour of God" is among Jackie's best films, but it is a solid representation of his works from the 1980's.
"Riot" is bad, but not THAT bad and might even provide some surface level entertainment for a handful of viewers. Even though I was mentally acknowledging its army of failures, I never became bored, annoyed or angry. I was just very, very indifferent.

"The Howling Reborn"- which attempted to cash-in on the "Twilight" craze- tries to be for everyone and yet it ultimately ends up being for no one, except maybe those cinematic masochists who wish to endure the entirety of the Howling franchise...like me...and you know what? I'm not even sure if this is for us because "The Howling Reborn" isn't even bad enough to satisfy my self destructive cravings.

Bad will always be bad, but "Howling: New Moon Rising" is a special kind of evil- one that represents everything I deplore about cheap sequels, from stock footage abuse to padding to terrible everything, causing the traumatic experiences of the Puppet Master franchise to resurface.
"Howling VI: The Freaks" is technically the best of the Howling sequels, but it achieves this by being OK in every way, making the movie a little too average for my tastes. Considering it's about a werewolf and vampire dueling wits in a circus troupe, I should be squealing in joy instead of shrugging indifferently!
"Howling V: The Rebirth" writes checks it cannot cash, but was still an easy watch and in some ways, is my favorite of the Howling sequels. After all, it's a werewolf-themed murder mystery which place in a dilapidated castle and that concept is just amazing.
