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 »

Gangs of Los Angeles fight with police for the city while the Shadow Lord fights for the other half of a long lost amulet.
5 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Double Dragon is better then Super Mario Brothers. Then again, so is everything else. The movie was released in 1994, looks like it was made in 1989, and the fashion is circa 1980. Why is it people from the future dress like they're from the past? And why is it Alyssa Milano looks hefty? It was terrible, unsophisticated and bumpy.

That said, it gave me exactly what I wanted. Slapstick Sung-fu action and a few familiar faces. I enjoyed. You don't rent a movie like Double Dragon because you want an engaging plot. You rent it to relive your childhood hi-jinx.

Watch it and I guarantee you that you'll be downloading an emulator and playing it within a week.
