Goofs

Ludwigs henchmen fire after Cynthia Rothrock, with machine guns. However, the guns do not eject any empty shell casings or show no other movement, only continuous muzzle flashes. This shows they are clearly replica props. See more »

Slightly overlong but entertaining fare
24 August 2005 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

I am under the impression that in most of the films they have made together, Cynthia Rothrock and Richard Norton are partners; "Lady Dragon" twists that situation around - this time they are opponents. And they are both at the peak of their physical powers: Cynthia looks amazingly flexible, and her acting is better than usual as well, and Richard is just highly enjoyable as the villain (after setting a man on fire, he says to his henchmen: "Don't just stand there. Put him out before he ruins the lawn!"). The story is just a standard revenge tale - I think the main "inspiration" here was Jean-Claude Van Damme's "Kickboxer". There is also a kung-fu kid, a sensuous mistress for Norton, a wise old Oriental master (of course!), and a wild cars-vs.-motorcycle chase. "Lady Dragon" is no masterpiece, but for low-budget American / Indonesian martial-arts fare, it's above-average. (**1/2)
