Dance of the Dragon is a beautifully-shot film with great performances especially from the leads, Jang Hyuk, Fann Wong and Jason Scott Lee. The story could have been more tightly edited, and more realistic locales could have been used, but generally the film is lensed well with strong characterization. Dialogue bordered on the cheesy/hokey at times though - it could be improved. The soundtrack bordered on the dramatic and could have been rendered more subtly. But generally, what blew me away was the strength of the film through the performances of the cast. They raised the film to a level unprecedented for an international cast and crew. Jang and Fann should see success if this film travels.
