Reviews

This film features the greatest ensemble team in the history of action-cinema; Jackie Chan (Rush Hour, New Police Story) Sammo Hung (Martial Law, Wheels on Meals) and Yuen Biao (Project A, Wheels on Meals) It encapsulates the same winning formula used in the highly-successful Rush Hour movies: dynamic physical comedy, comic antagonism between the main leads and amazing action-sequences and Showcases some of the greatest fight and stunt action from Jackie Chan's illustrious career.

Surely there are no other three actors you could put together in a physical film, that would have such chemistry and timing as this trio. This is great stuff. Unlike some of the JC films of the eighties, you don't feel the need to fast forward the comedy scenes as it works quite well in a jolly sort of way - due to Jackie, Sammo & Yuen Biao's performance. But that said, it's the martial arts action that stands out as usual - every fight scene in "Dragons" is absoloutely blinding. And there are plenty of them to boot. Favourites to watch for are the boat scene where JC takes the female lawyer to lunch then finds himself fighting with a dozen or so henchmen while she's in the toilet (I know I know -those white socks), any of the scuffles between Jackie, Sammo and Yuen Biao peppered throughout the movie and pretty much the entire final reel where JC & YB take on loads and loads of bad guys in a breath-taking display of top class choreography, before a one-on-one between Jackie and Benny The Jet Urquidez (from Wheels on Meals - if you've seen it). Directed by Sammo Hung, rather than JC, a huge amount of time is given to fabulous hand to hand combat instead of big elaboate stunts. Plus, on the special features there is a fine selection of out-takes which did not appear as part of the original movie. Check out Bey Logan's commentary as well - his stories and insights are spot on as usual. Even though the film was allegedly made in a rush for Chinese New Year, this is a cracking example of Hong Kong action at it's peak!

Format: DVD
This is one of the finest Chan/ Hung/ Biao films to have been made and features these three martial artists at the top of their game. I'm a big fan of the 'Three Dragon' franchise and I don't think you'll see fighters of this class all in one film any time soon. As always, you have to be a fan of this genre to get the most out of it but 'Dragons Forever' should prove a winner among the martial art nuts (like me!) out there.

The fight scenes are frenetic, yet fabulously choreographed so you don't miss a single karate chop. Sammo Hung's nifty direction works wonders here, exploiting the considerable talents of the stars to their full potential. The physical humour works perfectly, particularly when Jackie, Sammo and Yuen start laying into each other in Jackie's flat. And then there's the finale, as the trio take on a hilarious cigar-chomping baddie- I nearly cried with laughter at this bit!

I'd put this up with 'Project A' as a classic 'Three Dragons'. It's great fun, full of action and a worthy addition to a collector's shelf.

Format: DVD
Dragons Forever marks the last time that Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao and Jackie Chan appearing together in a feature film. The result is a fun film featuring some fantastic fight action. All 3 stars get to let loose in the film but the most screen time is given to Jackie Chan. Here he is given the mojority of fight scenes and they do not disappoint. The fights are frentic and hard hitting though featuring less acrobatic moves from the likes of Chan and even less death dying stunts that one might expect from Chan. The final throw down with Benny "the jet" Urquidez is amazing and they exchange fist and feet like one would expect from a kickboxing match, both being of equal skill levels. Though it does not quite live up to there first match-up "Wheels on Meals". Instead the more acrobatic movements is given to Yuen Biao who does some fantastic flips and kicks against kickboxer Billy Chow. Sammo Hung also enters the fray in some brutal fight scenes that appear painful for the poor stunt men on the recieving end. As always Sammo conveys great power and agility in his fights. The film also has a first ever brief fight between Jackie, Sammo and Biao which is great if a bit short.

The problem with the film comes in the form of logical story telling and any real emotions. Also the comedy is a bit hit and miss. During the slower periods of the film such as the romantic sequences or any real attempt at telling the story things become a bit of a bore. Unlike "Wheels on Meals" or Project A" where there was a perfect balance of successful comedy and action with good pacing, "Dragons forever" is more sparondic in terms of balance of action, comedy and romance.

Format: DVD
Dragons Forever is a typical Chinese New Year movie with Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao delivering the required mix of comedy and action in a formulaic, forgettably plotted but highly enjoyable number that showcases them at the height of their powers and agility amid much Three Stooges style tomfoolery. A villain who looks like Gary Numan after particularly bad plastic surgery and some dubious sexual politics make it look its age (vintage 1988), and it does have the single most obvious piece of stunt doubling ever for Chan (a high kick repeated from two different angles, and all too clearly looking like someone completely different each take), but it's infectiously enjoyable enough to let that slide.

This is a classic Jackie Chan,Samo hung & Yuen Biao romantic comedy movie which should not be missed...10 out of 10 for Jackie and the guys.

BUT...
This so called '2 disk special edition' is a BIG LETDOWN.
The main feature itself is a seriously cut version of the film. Having previously owned the VHS version i was surprised to see this dvd version has even more cuts than the old VHS with numerous scenes cut including most of yuen biao's comedy scenes and also at least 2 fight scenes of Jackie Chans.
The Special features disk does have a nice interview with jackie,samo & yuen (all filmed seperately) but the remaining special features are quite strange to say the least.. one with Bey Logan showing us around certain places in Hong Kong that were (get this) 'much like' the filming location of certain scenes in the movie but unfortunately they were not the locations at all(apart from 1 location in a car park..although the fight scene in this release was some 3 mins shorter than the original).
All in all, don't bother with this release as you may be able to find an import version which has not been shredded by Bey Logan/Hong Kong Legends.
I'm thankful to have picked up the original release in Hong Kong recently with no cuts and also featuring the original soundtrack with english subs and deleted scenes.

Avoid this release unless you have no other choice.
