Plot Summary

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

Trivia The first film Andrew Lau and Martin Scorsese officially work on together (after Andrew Lau's Infernal Affairs (2002) inspired Martin Scorsese's The Departed (2006)). See more »
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.
