Trivia

According to editor Danny Retz the alley where the Lee brothers are about to face off with Abobo was shot in downtown Los Angeles. "It was used by junkies and other nefarious persons and had to be steam clean before shooting could be done." said Danny. See more »

Goofs

When Shuko and the gang are in his office listening to the computer read the information on the Lee brothers, it says Billy is 17 and Jimmy is 18. Right before the Lee brothers fight the gangs in the junk yard there is a closeup of one of the gang members of the Clowns reading the Lee's information. It is says Jimmy was born on 2/24/90 and Billy was born on 2/17/92. If the movie takes place in 2007 that would make Jimmy 17 and Billy 15. See more »

Quotes

It's not as bad as all that!
15 August 2004 | by (TX, USA) – See all my reviews

I feel bad to see that this movie got such an incredibly low rating. Granted, it was no masterpiece. Then again, I don't think it was supposed to be.

I first saw this movie when I was fairly young, and I absolutely adored it. I had a crush on the brothers (the "Double Dragons" of the title), and I borderline-idolized the glow-in-the-dark punk kids. They were just so cool to me!

About a year ago or so--maybe two years ago--I watched this movie at about 2:00 in the morning during the summer, when there was nothing else to watch except infomercials or music videos. I was either 17 or 18. The movie wasn't as good as I'd remembered, but, to my very pleasant surprise, it wasn't nearly as bad as other people remembered it to be.

This is a good late-night movie, or nice if you're in the mood for something cheesy and nostalgic. I give it a 6 out of 10. A little above average--but I think that's just nostalgia. For most people viewing it, it's probably worth a 5.
