Jason Scott Lee (Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story), Korean heartthrob Jang Hyuk (Windstruck, Volcano High), and Singapore's A-list artiste Fann Wong (Shanghai Knights, Just Follow Law) star in Dance of the Dragon, a modern day tale of love, passion, courage and hope, with the demanding and visually stunning disciplines of ballroom dancing and martial arts woven into the plot.
Asian-American Hollywood actor Jason Scott Lee plays the role of Cheng, a former martial arts champion. His relationship with Emi (played by Singapore's top actress Fann Wong) is threatened by the arrival of Tae (Jang Hyuk) whom Emi mentors in dance. Soon, student and mentor appear to develop feelings for each other, leading to a showdown that will resolve the passionate love triangle.
Dance and martial arts are pivotal to the films storyline. Ballroom dancing is Tae's lifelong dream and through Emi, he can develop this craft. Tae must also face in a martial arts challenge with the loser leaving Singapore - and Emi.
I found the movie to slow for my taste. But I should admit that this movie is an interesting movie. With a fort and back story line, little dialogs, and beautiful dance, the movie is worth to watch.
It has some memorable scene and dialog and I still have it in my mind for some time, which indicates that the movie was able to bring a lot of my attention.
There is another movie in the same genre entitled Billy Elliot, and in my opinion Billy Elliot provide much more interesting storyline and ending. But some aspects in the movie are totally different so we can not really compare the two of them.
Anyway, the movie is worth to watch. If you like a slow dance, you will love this movie.
