Upon the movie's North American release, Canada-based kick-boxing entrepreneurs Martin McNamara and Michael McNamara sued Miramax Film Corp., Alliance Atlantis Communications, and Front Row Entertainment Inc. for their continental promotion of the film. Claiming copyright and trademark infringement, the McNamaras - who hold the copyright on the term "Twin Dragons" as the name of their martial arts academy - asserted that the movie "tarnished" their image as fighting promoters and asked for a total of $37 million in damages.

Twin Dragons is a uplifting extravaganza of fun and beauty
Twins separated at birth meet again blah blah
But it's fun to watch and you get to see Jackie Chan's hilariously imaginative fight scenes!
With a couple of babes thrown in and the inadvertent swapping of partners from one twin to the other, you can but tempt to imagine the glorious fun that results. This is Jackie at his silly best, a dignified world-famous conductor in one role whilst a bumbling bad-ass mechanic in the other, we get to see how versatile, if unique, an actor he is.
For much of the film, both twins keep meddling in each other's lives causing havoc and confusion without knowing the cause until finally they come face to face...
I saw it 10 years ago, several times because of its watchability. The soundtrack was excellent -- I still remember some of the tunes now.
Feeling down, need a lift? This flick will rejuvenate your spirit for open-hearted fun living.
