Storyline

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang "The Green Dragons". The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

In addition to the $100 bills seen during the opening credits being the wrong style for the period, they all have the same serial number: SG18017583Q. Also, the term "Secretary of the Treasury" is missing from beneath the signature o n the right side of the bill; the picture on the reverse is incorrect, and the image used of Ben Franklin has never been used on US currency.

Chappy Watched: Revenge Of The Green Dragons
26 March 2016 | by chappywatchedSee all my reviews

For a movie I knew nothing about and had only read a generic one-sentence description, this film turned out to be a good movie!

The story is entertaining and fascinating, the violence is story driven and not unnecessarily used but while the movie did start out entertaining, it did start to lose it's way after the halfway point.

There is very little action, it's mostly drama driven, but there is a graphic torture scene. It's well acted mostly by unknowns (well to me anyway) with the only people I knew were Harry Shum Jr (Glee) and Ray Liotta (Goodfellas). There is twist at the end and because it's based on a true story, there are some details on where some the characters are now.

This is a film that is okay to watch once but I don't see myself watching it again.
