I'm not a particular fan of twins-comedies, but Jackie Chan's Twin Dragons is luckily slightly different from every other such film. For the most part, but unfortunately we still get a few irky scenes. Special-effects wise I have to say, a few of the spliced scenes were a little clumsy but not distractingly so.
Also the film has a lot of great off the wall comedy and something different. The 'twins-effect' which occurs all through the film is a nice element to spice up the plot. Naturally Jackie gives us a brilliant physical performance as well.
The only real problem with Twin Dragons is that it doesn't offer anything particularly new or different from other Jackie films and thus feels a little unremarkable. However, Jackie's fans are likely to enjoy the film.
