The movie is based on true events, so the filmmakers had to walk on thethin line between integrity and artistic freedom, which may haveeffected the story being told, and made everything overall weak.Andrew Lau, known best for Infernal Affairs, the movie that inspiredMartian Scorsese's the Departed, ...

Despite Martin Scorsese being the executive producer and Ray Liottahaving a role, "Revenge of the Green Dragons" doesn't seem to havereceived much of a theatrical release (if any) in North America. Itdoesn't take long to figure out why - the movie simply isn't very good.I'm not saying there isn't an...
The plot is good and the direction is also alright. But the weakestlink of the movie are the actors of the main characters.Justin is just too skinny and little to make a credible gangster. If hethreatened me I think I woukd laugh. In reality is just difficult topicture it.The film could be more dark...
A collaboration between Wai-Keung Lau (Infernal Affairs trilogy) andMartin Scorsese (The Departed) about Chinese gangs in New York at theend of the 1980s. One would expect fireworks, right? Not so much. Thismovie is entertaining but misses a bigger impact. It's not surprisingthe film didn't get a wi...

This is the true story ofSonny (Chon) and his best friend Steven (Wu), two Chinese immigrantsliving in New York in the 1980's. The join a gang called the GreenDragons and quickly beco...
Revenge of the Green Dragons marks the English language debut of HongKong's most highly respected director, Wai-keung Lau. With classicssuch as Infernal Affairs among his heavy filmography, Revenge of theGreen Dragons will be a stain on an otherwise awesome and talentedcareer. Yes, Revenge of the Gr...
Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid (DDK)Rating: 2.5/5 starsAndrew Lau's "Infernal Affairs" trilogy became the best-known import inthe early 2000s from the storied Hong Kong film industry, supplyingMartin Scorsese with material for his Academy Award- winning film "TheDeparted". But while Mr. Lau's latest, "...
*What's the Hong Kong equivalent of Hollywood, eg "Bollywood" forIndia?I read the story of the Green Dragons over 20 years ago, and have justrecently heard of the movie adaptation. After watching this, I thinkthis is another case of "the facts are more interesting than fiction".The original events w...
As a Chinese American, I grew up watching HK mob and Andy Lau movies.Because of this, I recognize some of common threads, loyalty, betrayal,over reaching, and redemption. The thing that kills this movie for meis the poor acting. Chon as a main character and "bad boy" is a joke.To be fair, all the ch...
This movie was bad, really really bad. Where the hell was Scorsese? Didthey just stick his name in the credits to trick unsuspecting moviegoers to go and watch a mediocre movie? Because if they did itdefinitely worked on me.The only good thing about this movie is that luckily it is only 90minutes lo...

One day Stephen went missing andreturned as a Green Dragon gang member. Sonny went with him and theygrew up that way. One ...
I read a lot of negative comments about this movie and I wonder why?Because honestly I was entertained during the whole movie. It changesfrom the usual Italian or Irish gangster stuff. This time it's aboutthe Chinese Mafia with different gangs trying to recruit new membersfrom the illegal immigrants...
I watched this with my wife who is from Hong Kong (while I am a whiteywho grew up in Australia). This movie, while based on true events, has a very similar andpredictable feel to many of the Hong Kong gang films in Cantonese thatwe've seen together. The main difference being, despite having dozensof...
This is based on true events that happened in America. You may look atit, as either glorifying violence to a degree or making immigrants lookbad, but that would be beside the point. I don't believe this to be apropaganda either way. I do believe that the story is interesting andwhile it probably is ...
This has to be hands down one of the most awful movies which I haveseen - sitting down in anticipation of a movie in the mould of aScorcese or Infernal Affairs has left me bitter bitterly disappointed,the storyline is embellished with fabrications and half-lies of eventsoccurring throughout that age...
Movies like Enter The Dragon, Ronin, Entrapment imprinted lastingimpressions in my young mind as a kid. Unfortunately, action moviestoday do not fill my action appetite as they simply are about over thetop CGI and unrealistic action stories with their lack of surrealismand dark mood. However...this ...
Generic, Cluttered, and Confusing, this Under Developed and UtterlyExploitive Examining Tries to be All Things Asian Immigrants and HongKong Crime Movies. But it is Too Short and Unrealized and it Comes Offas Slick B-Movie Badness So Often Seen and as Disposable as Dirt.It's a Mad World Afterall, th...
While watching this film I could not believe that it was made by thesame director responsible for the excellent Young and Dangerous andInfernal Affairs sagas. What went wrong here? I suppose its thedirector's inability to understand American culture which I find rathersurprising since this is not th...

The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attentionof hard-boiled city cops. After an affair puts Sonny against his own brother, he sets out forre...
I can't believe that Scorsese would put his name on this movie. What alet down! I was really looking forward to this movie. The mafia- plotinvolving a Chinese-triad-like group with Scorsese involved in thedirecting seems like a perfect movie to me. Sadly it was not. The movieis straight forward all ...
this film has made me wonder if the director from Hongkong is a realChinese or worse yet, did this guy really know anything about theChinese immigrants and those who came to America in the 1980s? thescreenplay of this film is a absurd practical joke played on theChinese immigrants, it's like George ...
