Editorial Reviews

International action superstar Jackie Chan (The Karate Kid) rules in Dragon Lord, the action-packed adventure filled with death-defying stunts and knockout fight scenes.

Lifelong best friends, Dragon (Chan) and Cowboy, become rivals over a beautiful girl and then regain their friendship when they uncover a plot to smuggle precious Chinese antiques out of the country. But foiling the illegal operation won't be easy as Dragon and Cowboy kick the action into high gear in a thrilling rooftop battle with spear-wielding bad guys and an unbelievable, show-stopping fight finale—a Jackie Chan classic that's not to be missed!

Dragon Lord is the first good Jackie Chan film. All the elements of a classic Jackie Chan film came together in this film for the first time: 1) The well-trained but clumsy underdog hero whose adolescent tendencies get him into big trouble. 2) The use of almost cartoonish humor, blended with spectacular, sometimes death defying stunt work 3)sometimes brutal hand to hand fights with a bare minimum of bone breaking sound effects or blood.
This was only the second film Jackie directed. His first was Young Master and that film established Jackie as the martial arts Buster Keaton. However that film could not break out of the utterly formulaic restrictions the martial arts film and producers insisted upon.
Dragon Lord does change the formula and drastically. It also was not a box office success in Hong Kong and Jackie would work with his friends and Sammo (and fufill his contractual obligation to appear in the dreadful Cannonball Run 2 in 1983) before directing his first full-fledged Chan-masterpiece Project A in 1984. Dragon Lord was originally conceived as a sequel to Young Master, to be called Young Master in Love. But continuity did not allow the film to be an official sequel. It was first released (barely) to the U.S. as The Dragon Strikes in 1982. At this point in his career, Jackie knew he was not going to follow in the footsteps and be the new Bruce Lee for producer director Lo Wei. He had other things in mind and almost got what he was after with Dragon Lord.
For nearly the entire first hour of Dragon Lord , Dragon (Chan) and his best friend Cowboy (Mars) vie for the attentions of a young woman who's name we later learn is Sexxy. We are treated to an incredible display of stunt work in a opening title sequence of a Football game (not soccer) , Chinese Style.

This is an excellent Jackie Chan film, I've seen it on video and it's longer by about ten minutes. This DVD has cut a lot out of the original. The comedy in this movie is very funny and the fights are excellent. This DVD doesn't do it justice. One whole comedy scene is cut out. The action is still there, thank God, but the comedy adds a lot to this film, balancing it out more nicely.

If you want action and comedy at the same time this is your movie. With a 1/2 tea spoon of comedy, a 1/3 tea spoon of Action, a 2/4 tea spoon of comedy and a hole lot of Jackie Chan makes any movie awesome.

This is one of the films that started to break him away from the cheesy Kung-Fu flicks by Lo-Wei to his well known period action comedies like "Project A." This film has a really basic plot involving bandits stealing Chinese treasure. But it isn't important, this film is just a collection of enetertaining action scenes and comedy. Some notable scenes are sporting events. One involves grabbing a ball from the top of a large tower, and another involes a game which is like a cross between hacky sack and soccer. This film is most noted for being in the Guiness Book of World Records for the most takes for a single shot, over 2,900!

My jaw dropped when I watched the Chinese hackey sack game. You'll cringe at the beginning of the movie as Jackie falls fromt the top of a human tower! OUCH! But the fight scenes were pretty lame and there wasn't a very good villain either. If you want a movie with a good villain and great action, get Young Master.
