Astounding
29 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Boasting one of the most impressive casts ever with the 3 brothers Jackie Chan, Yuen Baio and Sammo Hung, Dragons Forever has been heralded by many as Chan's best movie and one of the top 10 martial arts movies ever created. Slap in legendary fighter Benny "The Jet" Urquidez (more than 200 hundred professional wins and not even one loss), and you've got yourself the most vicious fights ever seen on-screen. Jackie, Yuen, and Sammo even fight each other throughout the movie, and the finale, which contains a lot of improvisation, perfectly showcases each fighter's skills and, more particularly, Yuen's amazing acrobatic stunts.

Humor is preponderant in this movie, with scenes such as Jackie's and Yuen's first encounter, Yuen's "I've seen it in movies" attitude, and the druggie's esoteric, yet hilarious fighting attitude (a must see!). The plot is so-so, but manages to remain coherent without ever becoming a garbled mess, as is unfortunately the case so often. But who cares? This movie is an ode to martial arts and humor, not story.

Dragons Forever is indeed a movie of impervious precision that should be watched by all those who keep insisting that Chan's Hollywood flicks are better than his older Asian counterparts.

Score: 10/10
