User Review

Astounding

Rating: 10/10

Boasting one of the most impressive casts ever with the 3 brothers Jackie
Chan, Yuen Baio and Sammo Hung, Dragons Forever has been heralded by many
as
Chan's best movie and one of the top 10 martial arts movies ever created.
Slap in legendary fighter Benny "The Jet" Urquidez (more than 200 hundred
professional wins and not even one loss), and you've got yourself the most
vicious fights ever seen on-screen. Jackie, Yuen, and Sammo even fight
each
other throughout the movie, and the finale, which contains a lot of
improvisation, perfectly showcases each fighter's skills and, more
particularly, Yuen's amazing acrobatic stunts.

Humor is preponderant in this movie, with scenes such as Jackie's and
Yuen's
first encounter, Yuen's "I've seen it in movies" attitude, and the
druggie's
esoteric, yet hilarious fighting attitude (a must see!). The plot is
so-so,
but manages to remain coherent without ever becoming a garbled mess, as is
unfortunately the case so often. But who cares? This movie is an ode to
martial arts and humor, not story.

Dragons Forever is indeed a movie of impervious precision that should be
watched by all those who keep insisting that Chan's Hollywood flicks are
better than his older Asian counterparts.

Score: 10/10
