Storyline

White Dragon must get a list with the names of rebel supporters to Prince Ma Tung, the leader of the rebellion. Trying to stop him in his mission is the evil Prime Minister, who naturally wants the list in order to crush his opposition. Adding another complication is the fact that Ma Tung wants to kill White Dragon in revenge for the humiliation Tung's father suffered in a duel against White Dragon years earlier.

A film that lives up to its tagline!
11 July 2005 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

I've seen many of Wang Yu's films, and I think that "Blood of the Dragon" (aka "The Desperate Chase") just might be his finest moment. It's certainly one of the only independent films he made that can hold its own against Chang Cheh-directed epics like "The Magnificent Trio" and "The Assassin" in terms of excitement and tragic scope. The fights (very little empty-hand action, but plenty of spears, swords and more exotic weapons) are well-choreographed, the tone of the movie is appropriately grim, and Wang's character Lung Tai is a hero you actually care about and root for. The dubbing is slightly better than what I've heard in most Hong Kong and Taiwanese martial arts flicks, and the hard-rocking American soundtrack--recorded by Flood--enhances the action. "One man, one weapon, one hell of a movie"...that's what "Blood of the Dragon" promises, and it delivers! (Especially in the no-holds-barred climax.)
