Editorial Reviews

An adventurous young thief has his eyes on swindling the royal court of its jewels by winning the hand of the Governor’s daughter. The Princess, however, manages to convince her father to challenge all her suitors with vigorous tests. But it takes the faith of a bird, a magical flying carpet, and the mystical Fruit of Life for our hero to see the dream to an end. Now available for the first time on DVD, Son of the Dragon features great bonus features including an exclusive and in-depth interview with David Carradine!

5.0 out of 5 stars David Carradine at 70 years old- October 14, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
David Carradine is still mentally and physically in shape at 70 years old! This man has been making movies for over thirty years! Son of the Dragon is an epic movie that is almost 3 hours long. However, there is a mixture of humor and good martial arts action that makes this a true classic for the future.

I rate this a five star movie-

2.0 out of 5 stars "May your dreams fly, even if we cannot" February 9, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The latter-day career of David Carradine offered some remarkable film opportunities to the former "Kung Fu" hero. Sure, with the exception of Kill Bill - Volume Two, these were mostly low-budget DTV releases, but they nevertheless let him explore a variety of roles that true fans ought to be eager to investigate. One of the more ambitious projects he undertook during the last four years of his life was a two-part TV miniseries set in 19th century China, directed by TV veteran David Wu (The Snow Queen). Disappointingly, even though this miniature epic had the potential to be a TV masterpiece like Merlin or Arabian Nights, it wound up being a fairly mediocre adventure, the biggest asset of which was Carradine himself. Unless you're a die-hard fan of the prominently-featured costar, then you'll be hard-pressed to find reason to sit through its three-hour entirety.

The story: a retelling of "The Prince of Baghdad" prompted by a young Caucasian street urchin named D.B. (John Reardon, Merlin's Apprentice) seeking fortune for his underground family of street children. When foreign princes congregate to compete in treasure-hunting quests for the right to marry the local governor's daughter, Princess Wei Li (Desiree Ann Siahaan, Marco Polo), D.B. poses as a nobleman so he can gain access to the palace and steal treasure...

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected! December 28, 2009
By CC
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine, but not too much otherwise. He was okay in this, but the movie was very good regardless of any actors corny lines and a bit cheesey acting. The scenery and landscapes were outstanding. The colors and photography again, outstanding. It was ALMOST like a big budget movie like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in the filming. The story was simple and really drawn out, but the visuals more than made up for that, and the story was not bad, just shallow. That said, it was in the style of the old Chinese made Kung Fu movies, shallow stories, and the fight scenes too. To their credit however, they were not bloody battles, and that I was grateful for. All in all, I can't say anything bad about it and I would watch it again in the future. I would recommend this movie to others.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fair but not great martial arts movie. April 5, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been an enthusiastic fan of anything to do with the martial arts for more than sixty years. I also enjoy Asian martial arts movies and I have seen and written reviews on many of them. I am also a fan of the late David Carradine and lately I have watched several of his movies. I have enjoyed viewing all of them, but I was somewhat disappointed in this movie DVD (Son of the Dragon) in which they attempted to make an almost three hour epic film but failed in spite of some of the colorful scenes. David Carradine plays the teacher (Bird) of a young thief played by John Reardon (D.B.). The story begins with D.B. stealing even though his teacher has attempted to teach this immature boy differently. As usual, David Carradine was believable and interesting, but his co-star John Reardon was terrible and I intend to avoid ever seeing this actor in any future movie.

Carradine also takes care a group of homeless poor children and the story centers around D.B. attempting to pass himself as a royalty because he fails in love with a Princess. There are numerous tests Carradine and Reardon must pass in order for them to win the favor of the Princess. I found most of the action scenes lacking and three hours was way too long for this movie. Some of the fight scenes were okay, but not great. If this movie was cut down to 90 minutes it might have been a better movie.

If you enjoy long colorful martial arts films with poor acting by the supposed hero you might enjoy this film. Personally, I found it to be one of the most boring martial arts films I have ever seen lately.

Rating: 3 Stars and I am being generous. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Martial Art Myths)
