Storyline

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang "The Green Dragons". The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. Written by Anonymous

Stellar movie... up until the end
19 August 2016 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

A very brutal gangster gangster epic about an Asian gang in New York in the 80's and early 90's.

Although the gangs are supposed to be immigrants they all speak perfect English which I guess was mostly to do with it being more easily to comprehend and more easily accessible for an English speaking audience who otherwise wouldn't watch Asian cinema.

So it's a non-issue really that one can look aside.

The acting is fine, as is the cinematography and editing etc. As I was watching it I found myself wondering why the rating was so low because I felt like it was a well-made movie on all levels.

But then of course in the end they had to throw one final twist into the mix that didn't make any sense with the movie we just witnessed.

Really irks me when they do this in films, if you're gonna add a twist you need to make sure that everything we witnessed checks out and that character personalities aren't completely bypassed just for the sake of throwing in that twist.

Which is the exact thing they did not do here, won't get into details but when you see it you will know what I mean.

Would have gotten a 7 but because of that I have to pull it down a notch to a 6.
