Product Description

Award-winning martial arts drama from Hong Kong derived from the comic book of the same name. When Tiger Wong (Nicholas Tse) uses his special Dragon Slaying Kick to protect an innocent family from being tormented by Triads, he unwittingly takes a large gold medallion from one of his assailants. He doesn't know that it's the Lousha Death Plaque - a powerful talisman belonging to one of the biggest criminal organisations in Asia. Now a marked man, Tiger is ambushed by a vicious gang, but is protected by a stranger with incredible martial arts skills. This man is Dragon (Donnie Yen), who is Tiger's estranged step-brother. Together with Turbo (Shawn Yue) - an expert with nunchakus - these three street fighters must put aside their differences and stand alone against the might of the Lousha Gate. Devised from the incredibly successful comic book and featuring amazing martial arts fighting choreographed by director Donnie Yen.

3.0 out of 5 stars FU 4 U REVIEW # 2: DRAGON TIGER GATE 23 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
I'm not going to harp on about this one for too long as everyone that probably desperately wanted to see it has most likely done so, and most of the story info can be found elsewhere on this page. So here's a quick point by point of the good and bad of Dragon Tiger Gate which culminates in a rather useful conclusion at the end:

THE GOOD:
- Some brilliant fight scenes in huge sets that get torn right up.
- Some obviously quite talented fighters.
- Some inventive camera work: at one point you get every view possible of a massive fight in a liitle resteraunt, and when the shots get clogged with henchmen the camera, rather niftily, swings above the action to give you a top down view of every room the fight is happening in. great stuff.
- Some good use of wires - not too much.
- Some okay acting, not the best but good enough to help you feel for the characters.

THE BAD:
- Hideous, really vomit worthy, trendy hair doos on every character that are more laughable than cool. The guy with the mad, blonde, spikey fringe job has the exact same doo as my 50 year old auntie. I know they're supposed to look like thier comic book counterparts but some things work in comics and not on screen. I can't see how having a fringe covering your eyes, like an emo dulux dog, would help you fight 200 bad guys, ridiculous!
- There sure is some talent one display here, but some of the fighters, I felt, just scraped in because they looked the part - but talking the talk and walking the walk an all that. No one in the film really compares to the likes of Sonny Chiba, Jet Li or Brucey boy (Except Donnie of course!).

Format:Blu-ray
This film is very enjoyable and features decently developed characters with charisma and style and mixed in with great comic book action. The fight scenes are jaw dropping, and some of the camera work is inspired and very visually impressive - the mass fight at a sushi bar stands out as a beautifully orchestrated spectacle and must rival any display or dance or acrobatics that has been captured on camera. The picture looks tremendous in high definition and this only complements the great use of colours that this visual feast provides. Donnie Yen's martial artistry is especially spectactular in this film but the film works well as a rounded adventure with great fight scenes. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Donnie Yen Rocks! 13 July 2009
Format:DVD
If you like fast paced Kung Fu movies where the fights are fast and furious, you will love this.

I like films where you can see most of the fight action, and prefer sparing use of wires. This film does not disappoint. The big fights at the end are so exciting and really well shot.

Nothing interferes with the storytelling, flashbacks and fights move the story forward without feeling tacked on or clunky, the acting is great and there are a few chucklesome moments as well.

All in all, I loved this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Tiger Gate 11 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
This is to be watched by people who like there Fantasy style martial arts films. I however have neve rbeen a fan of these kind of films (Hero, Crouching Tiger ETC) so I was overally impressed by this movie.

I found the film very complicated and hard to follow, the CGI seemed pretty sloppy at times and the charcters all had very stupid hair.

The three good things in this movie are, Donnie Yen, Kenji Kawai music score and the fight sequences (well most of them).

Id rather watch Yen in films like IP Man and Flashpoint

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok story, good fight scene 17 Dec 2008
By Prakash
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie expecting a decent storyline and excellent fight scene. At first the charaters were fighting against each other one specialising on kicks, another on punches, another on nunchucks, and a female that didn't fight. After finding their true identity and a laugh at one fighting with a flip flop weilding master, a confusing bit of meeting a painting master in a massive pagoda, they go after the 'masked one'.

Very good end fight scene, of each of the specialising technique.

Better to rent first then decide on if to keep for collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars not my cup of yen 27 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
The first few fights in this are really spectacular and this what i think makes this film fail. All the big climactic action is at the start and the actual end battles just dont reach the bar that has been set or top it either. the mid section is just plain old DULL!! With soap style melodrama and endless lovey dovey sentiment that goes nowhere and makes the impenetrable plot feel like slow torture. Donnie yen looks ridiculous with his teen hairdo and leaves most of the kick ass stuff to others. what starts as a stylishly shot piece of straightforward revenge action suddenly veers off to the far left and turns into a silly juvenile mystical OTT farce with an out of place bad guy with super powers giving the film a schizophrenic quality and belittles all the great stuff that went before. Its as if they lost faith in the initial premise and in true RAY DENNIS STECKLER Fashion decided to just go another way with it. KUNG FOOLERY. THANX

4.0 out of 5 stars more Donnie magic 13 Nov 2010
By Hedon
Format:DVD
Dragon Tiger Gate is, in my opinion, a slick and very enjoyable martial arts film that may not be for everyone, including many kung fu fans.

Based on a comic book of the same name, DTG is one of those movies where maximum enjoyment comes from disconnecting your brain and enjoying the slick, comic book style presentation and the stunning fight scenes. Like many comic adaptations, the story does leave something to be desired, which is probably the result of trying to squeeze hundreds of issues into one 90 minute feel. However, the storyline is coherent and follow-able in a very Bruce Lee good-guy-seeks-revenge-kicks-bad-guy-ass type of way. What this movie does do, and does it exceedingly well, is capture a rich and very stylish comic book feel and translate it well into a like action, high kicking setting. The sets look fantastic with very colourful lighting effects, and even the camp wardrobe seems strangly in place. What I liked most about the film is that, in my opinion, there's a great combination of cgi effects with some real bone crunching martial arts action, courtesy of fight coreography by the very talented Mr. Yen. What i mean is, for the most part, the fighting is rather crediable and quasi-realistic with some cgi and minimal wire work as icing to the cake rather then the main focus (ala house of flying daggers). And the action is rather stunning, with great use of dynamic lighting and camera work. My two favourite parts are a vicious scrap in a Sushi restraunt (which features some brilliant top down camera work) and a battle in a baseball park and night with creepy spotliight effects and dust flying everywhere to create a very dramatic and tense scene.

What really tops it all off is the physical performances of the main characters.
