Alternate Versions

Despite the UK cinema version being uncut with a PG certification, the UK video version was cut by 10 secs by the BBFC to remove some headbutts and blows during the fight scenes for a 12 certification. In 2015, the BBFC waived the 10 secs of cuts for a 12 certification DVD/Bluray release. See more »

Gangs of Los Angeles fight with police for the city while the Shadow Lord fights for the other half of a long lost amulet.
5 July 2006 | by die_buffy_dieSee all my reviews

Double Dragon is better then Super Mario Brothers. Then again, so is everything else. The movie was released in 1994, looks like it was made in 1989, and the fashion is circa 1980. Why is it people from the future dress like they're from the past? And why is it Alyssa Milano looks hefty? It was terrible, unsophisticated and bumpy.

That said, it gave me exactly what I wanted. Slapstick Sung-fu action and a few familiar faces. I enjoyed. You don't rent a movie like Double Dragon because you want an engaging plot. You rent it to relive your childhood hi-jinx.

Watch it and I guarantee you that you'll be downloading an emulator and playing it within a week.
