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.

Wang Yu against the Mongols. It's no real match...
5 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There is little in this low-budget Chinese kung fu drama that we haven't seen before, aside from a few nifty weapons. It's a predictable story of one man versus an empire, the bad guys this time around being the big, greasy bearded Mongols whose dominance spells trouble for good-guy fighter White Dragon. Eventually Dragon ends up taking on an entire Mongol army alone, but not before he has mildly romanced an attractive barmaid, made friends with a not-too-annoying young Chinese kid, and chopped off a guy's finger! The film is pretty bloody for a kung fu movie. I'm not talking Chang Cheh kinda bloody, as in a bloodbath or slaughterhouse film (see CRIPPLED AVENGERS or SUPER NINJAS) but the blood does flow fairly steadily.

Bolstering the film is one-time action legend Jimmy Wang Yu (THE ONE-ARMED BOXER), a film star whose career was already on the wane in the late '70s after his box-office gold of a decade previously. Wang Yu would slug on in a plethora of low-budget, sometimes interesting movies in the '80s and '90s (FANTASY MISSION FORCE being a good sample of his later work) but he would never reach the early heights of his career, which saw him equal popularity with Bruce Lee. Here, he doesn't have a lot to do as the noble, heroic White Dragon, other than swing his spear around and jump into the air a lot. Still, Wang Yu is cool in my book, his acting a little better than most of his contemporaries, so kudos to him for his appearance here.

Unfortunately, the American distributor saw fit to tinker with this movie for its US release. Thus we get dubbed in American voices (rather than the usual English dubbing); a hilarious US cast list showing up at the end (the names are either made up or those of the dubbers) and worst of all, cheesy rock music inserted over the soundtrack. Speaking of sounds, the sound effects in this movie are hilariously over the top, whether it be a spear swinging, a ball-and-chain spinning or a horse clip-clopping down a road (they do that a lot in this film). It's pretty funny to watch and listen to. Although far from a classic, BLOOD OF THE DRAGON has plenty of goofy flying, clichéd dialogue, and silly action to recommend it, cheesy effects and a high body count. Kung fu fans might enjoy it, providing they find a good copy (Brentwood DVD's is typically poor).
