Review 4K Movie

The action movie 'Dragons Forever', was shot very hard and with a lot of creaking - the Hong Kong classics and two childhood friends Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung, were in a very strained relationship during filming and the film was shot in a big hurry, which could not but affect the result.

First of all, the screenplay seems underdeveloped and most of the timing is taken up not by the main trial story but by a series of comic romantic scenes that vary greatly in quality: in places it's funny and in places it looks very forced, silly and overcooked.

In addition, the movie has one chewed-up minor storyline with bandits, leading to two fights, after which no one will remember these bandits. Cut them out and the viewer won't even know they were in the movie.

Secondly, Dragons Forever, being a film with the top Hong Kong actors of the time and a top crew, looks like a low-budget film: most of the film is shot indoors, and the street scenes are shot in rather inconspicuous places of the city (except, perhaps, the scene with the yacht), or outside it at all. You only have to turn on, for example, 'Police Story 2' of 1988 and then 'Dragons' for a few seconds to get a clear sense of it. It's noticeable to the naked eye and immediately gives away the rush of filming. No top Hong Kong action movie from the '80s looks as cheap as 'Dragons Forever.

Another insignificant, but noticeable minus is a few very violent and scary scenes, which a comedy action movie needs like a dog's fifth leg. Sammo Hung, who made a lot of top action comedies in Hong Kong, not always, but quite often sinned in this way, and in 'Dragons Forever' he overdid it once again. Although, on the other hand, it allows you to feel much more for the characters during the fight scenes.

Still, my opinion of this movie is more positive than negative.

One of the pluses of this fighting game is that the villains, while somewhat cartoonish, are very memorable and colorful. The cynical, puny cigar-wielding boss played by Yuen Wah, for all his cartoonishness, sticks in the memory for a long time. The character is clearly influenced by the main villain of 'The Oriental Condors', played by the same Yuen Wah.

The second guest kickboxer, Benny Urquidez, is much more impressive than in 'Diner on Wheels', and is perceived as a very serious and dangerous opponent for the characters. He has almost no dialogue scenes, and most of the acting work was done for him by the makeup artists and his appearance. Unlike in 'Diner on Wheels', there are no comic elements in action scenes with his participation and the main emphasis is placed on tension, which makes it possible to avoid a feeling of déjà vu after watching 'Diner' and gives the duels their own zest.

The main characters, too, are generally all right. Jackie Chan fits in quite nicely as the scheming lawyer. We also liked Sammo Hung, an arms dealer, but the most colorful hero is a naive, crazy but very honest and fair apartment thief Yuen Biao, who moves around with the help of acrobatic tricks.

The fight scenes are inventive, dynamic and humorous (except for the final fight), but with a sense of soreness and punching power. Yuen Biao, as previously mentioned, focuses on jumps, flips and somersaults, while Jackie and Sammo focus more on the usual punches, but they don't pale in comparison to Biao thanks to the quality choreography. In addition to the aforementioned villains, the film also features kickboxer Billy Chow, memorable for his role as a Japanese general in 'Fist of Legend' with Jet Li, Dick Wei, who played a striking role as a pirate in 'Project A' and stuntmen from Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung teams, who are masters of complex, spectacular and spectacular falls from blows.
