People have been unfairly criticising this film and taking things far too seriously indeed.

If you love Hong Kong action films, and have been a fan of such productions since the 70's or earlier, you will love this film pure and simple.

I actually enjoyed some of the action in this film more than SPL! Why? Because DTG was pure unadulterated comic book escapism. It isn't meant to be serious, it isn't meant to be deep. Its a totally entertaining popcorn movie, and I would suggest that anyone who tries to analyse it any further than that really should take some time out from watching movies.

Put simply, Dragon Tiger Gate is what a comic book adaption should be. As a long time Hong Kong martial arts film fan, I found this film to deliver everything I expect from such a thing and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Just don't bother watching it if you are the type of person who is going to sit there with their arms folded expecting it to change your life or something like many of the other reviews I have seen on the web seem to have done.
