‘Green Dragons’: Ambition is not enough

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Revenge of the Green Dragons

USA/China, 2014

Written by Andrew Loo and Michael Di Jiacomo

Directed by Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo

The problem with the new Revenge of the Green Dragons is that co-director Andrew Lau and executive producer Martin Scorsese are already joined at the hip over a previous story, which Lau made as Infernal Affairs before Scorsese re-made it as The Departed. Although Revenge of the Green Dragons is an entirely different type of story than those two films, it will inevitably be compared to them, as well as every other classic that the two men have made, and it suffers badly from the comparison.

Of all the films in Lau’s and Scorsese’s catalogs, this most closely resembles Goodfellas, right down to the omnipresent voiceover narration by the lead character. Sonny (Justin Chon of the Twilight series) immigrates to America as a small child, and »

Revenge Of The Green Dragons Review

15 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Revenge Of The Green Dragons is supposed to be a historically relevant glimpse into the Queens gang scene circa 1980, it feels very much like a cartoonish riff off of Walter Hill’s The Warriors. The Scorsese-produced film comes with a certain pedigree since Wai-keung Lau (Infernal Affairs) represents half of the directorial duo, joined by Andrew Loo, yet the clunky narrative scripted by Loo and Michael Di Jiacomo fails to properly grasp the thematic gravity of illegal immigration. The Green Dragons are the baddest mamma jammas this side of Queens, yet their foolishly ambitious nature only paves a cinematic road towards random gang shootouts, weightless acting and a faulty focus on pulpy action over more emotionally jarring factors about immigrants chasing the American dream.

The story follows Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu), two brothers who are inducted into a Chinese street gang at a very early age. »

Review: Martin Scorsese Produced, Andrew Lau Co-Directed 'Revenge Of The Green Dragons' Is A Total Mess

21 October 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“There’s a storm coming detective, and I don’t know of any umbrellas that will keep this city dry,” says the protagonist of “The Revenge Of The Green Dragons” at one point. It’s spoken with a sincerity that had us scratching our heads in bewilderment, a statement that’s not exactly directed at this ludicrous, over-the-top mess of a movie, but at Martin Scorsese, who will have his name forever attached to it. Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo team up for directing duties (Lau’s “Infernal Affairs” gives you hope) with Scorsese executive producing. On paper, the film looked like it could be a boatload of extravagant, gun-toting fun. Little did we know that, in reality, reading “Martin Scorsese Presents” in the opening credits would be the closest this movie comes to being great. Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) are two Chinese-American brothers, who grew up in late-80s Queens, »

Dragon Seed: Lau & Loo’s Dissatisfying NYC Chinese Gang Saga

Martin Scorsese appears as executive producer on Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo’s Revenge of the Green Dragons, which is no surprise considering he famously remade Lau’s 2002 film Infernal Affairs as The Departed (2006). Featuring a gritty period portrait of gangland warfare in New Your City, it’s clearly the sort of material that Scorsese seems to be attracted to, and thematically, one could even say there are influences of titles like Mean Streets (1973) or Goodfellas (1990) in the mix, with slight homages here and there. But the similiarites are only skin deep. This saga, which is actually based on fact, feels too zany and forthright, any realistic human elements crushed beneath its predilection for exaggerated, dramatic performances and hyperviolence.

Justin Chon Loves These 5 Gang-Related Movies & TV Shows

15 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You might know Justin Chon as the star of the raunchy comedy "21 & Over," but this fall, the actor gets serious in the bloody crime film "Revenge of the Green Dragons."

Set in 1989 New York, the action movie follows two immigrant brothers who join the ranks of a Chinatown gang to survive the impoverished city. Before long, the brothers draw the unwanted attention of New York's hard-boiled cops. "Revenge of the Green Dragons" also unites crime film veteran Martin Scorsese (Executive Producer) with Hong Kong-born director Andrew Lau. As you may remember, Scorsese famously adapted Lau's "Infernal Affairs" (2004) into the Oscar-winning "The Departed" (2006).

Chon recently revealed his five favorite gangster movies and TV shows to Moviefone. He had us at "Cool Hand Luke."

"Revenge of the Green Dragons" is available on DirecTV now and hits theaters October 24. »

58th BFI London Film Festival – Black Coal, Thin Ice (2014)

26 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Coal, Thin Ice, 2014.

Directed by Yi’nan Diao.

Starring Fan Liao, Lun Mei Gwei, Xuebing Wang, Jinchun Wang and Ailei Yu.

Synopsis:

An ex cop and his ex partner decide to follow up on investigation of a series of murders that ended their careers and shamed them, when identical murders begin again.

Winner of this year’s coveted Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, Black Coal, Thin Ice comes upon a huge wave of both expectation and critical acclaim. Lauded with such positivity increases the pressure on the film to truly deliver, but despite its technical brilliance and flashes of greatness, Black Coal is ultimately a huge disappointment.

Beginning in 1999 in the Chinese suburbs, Black Coal follows Zhang Zhili (Silver Bear winner Fan Liao) a young police detective who is thrust into a case against a serial killer who is a fan of decapitating his victims and then dumping the parts into coalmines. »

Toronto Showcases Wide Range of Asian Films

7 September 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

More than any festival outside the Asian region, Toronto serves up the widest range of contemporary Asian cinema each year.

The festival can perhaps thank the city’s multi-cultural makeup: Toronto has significant Indian and East Asian populations. And the festival can be grateful for its large scale, which allows it more room to cover the diversity of the world’s most prolific filmmaking region than smaller events.

But credit also should go to Asian programmer Giovanna Fulvi and Tiff’s chief selector Cameron Bailey, who makes several trips per year to the region and is personally responsible for the selection

of Indian films.

Bailey has been credited with popularizing the term “Hindie,” short for “Hindi indie.” It reflects the trend for internationally aware and financially savvy Indian filmmakers to break ranks with the country’s traditional film financing sources (and some Bollywood stereotypes), and instead use co-productions and private »

'Revenge of the Green Dragons' (2014) Movie Review

7 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"There's a storm coming, and I don't know of any umbrella that can keep the city dry." This is an actual quote from Revenge of the Green Dragons, an awful movie if I've ever seen one and a baffling one at that as Martin Scorsese has attached his name to the picture as an executive producer, presumably as a nod to co-writer and co-director Andy Lau going back to when Scorsese adapted Infernal Affairs into the Oscar winner The Departed. Fair enough, but Lau makes more than enough films and Scorsese didn't need to come within a mile of this one and tarnish his reputation. Then again, perhaps this 94-minute cut isn't the only cut of the film out there. The trailer certainly includes shots that aren't in the film and the characters are so poorly established there has to be more than what I saw. Of course, that won't »

‘Brick Mansions’ Blu-ray Review

6 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa, Carlo Rota, Andreas Apergis, Richard Zeman, Robert Maillet, Bruce Ramsay | Written by Luc Besson, Bibi Naceri | Directed by Camille Delamarre

Hollywood remaking a foreign film is far from a new phenomenon, and adaption in this manner has yielded some truly great films. We have seen such successes like Seven Samurai  transformed into The Magnificent Seven, and Infernal Affairs  altered into The Departed.

On the other hand, there are movies like Brick Mansions. This remake of the Luc Besson / Pierre Morel French parkour action fest District B13  has much in common with the original including plot structure, action sequences, and even shares one of the co-leads. What it lacks is energy, craftsmanship, and originality.  Fans of the original have little reason to examine this new take, and those coming in fresh will also find it difficult enjoy this tired dud of an action movie. »

The $$1 million ($800,000) picture is predominantly financed by Distribution Workshop, the Hong Kong sales company which has world rights.

Nothing Infernal about Revenge Of The Green Dragons

16 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) is back in familiar territory with his latest movie, an American crossover that - judging from the intense trailer - could be one of the films of the year. Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga) and Kevin Wu (Rock Jocks) take centre stage, along with the almighty, all conquering Ray Liotta, whose always at his best in this genre of filmmaking. Us fans get to see this in September, you can check out the trailer at the link below.

Andrew Lau’s Revenge of the Green Dragons Drops a Trailer and Poster

14 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I love the fact that the director of the American-Chinese crime drama “Revenge of the Green Dragons” doesn’t even get his name mentioned on the movie’s poster, but Martin Scorsese, who apparently “executive produced” the movie (whatever that means) gets the primo marquee spot. I guess that makes sense from an advertising point of view. Heck, they might even manage to fool a couple of dummies into thinking Scorsese actually directed this movie and not Andrew Lau, the guy who originally directed the “Infernal Affairs” series before it was remade by Scorsese into “The Departed.” Anyways, check out a trailer and poster for Lau’s “Revenge of the Green Dragons,” which is just a terrible title for a crime drama. It sounds like a movie about flying wuxia masters and not a gangland flick. A true immigrant story set against the vibrant backdrop of Flushing, N.Y. in the 1980s and 1990s. »

First Poster and Trailer for Martin Scorsese Produced Revenge of the Green Dragons

13 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The first trailer, poster and syopsis have been released for Revenge of the Green Dragons, the upcoming crime drama from directors Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo.

Martin Scorsese is serving as executive producer on the movie, something which isn’t a huge surprise in some ways as it was The Wolf of Wall Street director who helmed a remake of Infernal Affairs with 2006′s The Departed.

Revenge of the Green Dragons focuses on two immigrant brothers who join a Chinatown gang known as “The Green Dragons” in order to survive the poverty of 1980s New York. It’s based on a true story, and interestingly it appears as if the concept of the American Dream will form the movie’s backdrop.
