Storyline

On holidays in Hong Kong, Mrs Ma gives birth to identical twins. A criminal in the same hospital attempts to escape, taking one of the twins hostage. The child is lost during the confusion, and Mr and Mrs Ma return to New York with one child. Years later, John Ma is a famous conductor and pianist, unaware that his twin brother "Boomer" is a mechanic/race car driver/bodyguard in Hong Kong. When John travels to Hong Kong to give a concert, the twins get caught up in each other's business, about which they are anything but experts. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Twin Dragons is a uplifting extravaganza of fun and beauty
14 February 2002 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

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.

9/10
