Editorial Reviews

The world's greatest action hero, Jackie Chan (RUSH HOUR 1&2, RUMBLE IN THE BRONX), delivers twice the excitement and twice the fun in this nonstop, stunt-filled comedy thriller! Jackie plays Boomer, a streetwise martial arts expert living in Hong Kong and his long-lost twin brother, John, a classical musician from New York! They've never met ... but when John travels to Hong Kong to give a concert, these total-opposite identical brothers become unwittingly mixed up in a hilarious case of mistaken identity! With hard-hitting martial arts thrills and endless comedy hijinks, TWIN DRAGONS packs everything you've come to love about the wildly popular movies of stuntmaster Jackie Chan.

Customer Reviews

For those who love Jackie's stunts, there are some amazing ones in this movie.
Kate McMurry
As other movies of this kind, if you don't suspense your logic while watching it, you won't like it.
Cestmoi
Great stunts, decent story, good fight scenes, but some of the action was just plain silly.

Just a quick note: I don't think some of the reviewers have paid attention. There are criticisms to Jackie Chan as director. Well, two notes: 1) He did not directed this movie 2) Most of the best Jackie Chan movies have been directed by him. He has been recognized as an excellent director.
Anyway, this movie was done for the construction of some association for directors from Hong Kong, and that explains why the multiple directors. Jackie Chan has said he is not satisfied with the final result of the movie.
But don't be scared. This is an excellent comedy, using the old joke about mixed identities. It is not heavy on the action side, but includes some nice fight scenes, including a final shutdown at a facility for testing cars.
If you are looking for one Chan movie, there are better ones to select for starters (Supercop, Operation Condor, Rumble in the Bronx). But if you are a die hard fan, you will want to take a look at "Twin Dragons".

1 star is not to the movie - movie itself is one of my favorites - but for the US edition.
Some idiots are cutting all the time LARGE parts of Jackie Chan movies for the US. Does anybody know why? I think they just hate Jackie Chan and don't want to others enjoy his performance as well.
In the US edition of "Rumble in the Bronx" they deleted the entire love line (it may surprised some people, but there are 2 of them in the full version).
So, if you like Jackie movies, avoid this edition and try to get the Hong Kong one.

To review a Jackie Chan film is to admit that one has too much time on one's hands. A more futile gesture is hard to imagine: I doubt anyone has ever decided whether or not to see a Chan movie based on anything so trivial as a review or critique, and with good reason: Chan's track record speaks for itself. Over the past three decades, he's churned out dozens of martial arts extravaganzas which have delighted audiences all over the world, making him one of Asia's biggest (and richest) stars. Chan fans, a group I count myself part of, go to see his films not because of their breathtaking intellect, but because we enjoy seeing the Master kick a little ass, and make us laugh while he does so. Who cares what the critics think?
Chan is a rare breed: a hybrid who possesses not only stunning physical grace but also a sly streak of self-depreciating humor-- he's not one of those buff Ah-nold clones, and that's part of his appeal: he looks like "everyman," and his characters use their wits (and a dash of good ol' dumb luck) to pull themselves out of the dire situations they continuously find themselves in. In that regard, his performances parallel the great silent comedians of cinema's earliest days: both Chaplin and Buster Keaton are acknowledged by Chan as major influences.
The plot of "Twin Dragons," made in 1992 but just released in America, consists of the usual silliness: some bad guys are running around Hong Kong, and only some tightly-edited kung-fu and astonishing stunt work by Chan can make the streets safe again. The twist this time is that Jackie plays two roles, a pair of identical twin brothers separated at birth. One grows up to be a master martial artist named Boomer, a tough guy raised in the hard streets of Hong Kong.

Format: VHS Tape
This is one of my favorite Chan movies. The whole film is played for laughs using the classic plot line of twins separated at birth who are reunited by accident as adults. The twins mix identities in many scenes leading to fish-out-of-water humor. I particularly enjoyed the scene in which the street-tough twin, Boomer, conducts an orchestra as a stand-in for the famed-musician twin, John Ma. Through his tremendous energy (and acrobatics), Boomer inspires a tepid orchestra to musical heights it has never known before. Another really funny scene is the battle in the Mitsubishi testing factory at the climax. Here, the theme of the twins-acting-as-one, which has brought laughs throughout the film, reaches its manic peak as Boomer helps martial-arts-impaired John Ma take down the villain. Both of these scenes, especially the one in the factory, are so hilarious, my kids and I were slapping each other on the back and howling with laughter.
For those who love Jackie's stunts, there are some amazing ones in this movie. One in particular blew me away: when he leaps through the window of a car feet first.
I also like very much that in Twin Dragons the women aren't just objects to be rescued from the villain, as happens with such annoying predictability in most action films. Instead, in this movie, something I've never seen before in quite this way, the rescue-object is Boomer's ridiculous male best-friend, a scrawny fool who's always in trouble, because he's addicted to baiting bad guys. Because Boomer's pal is such a manipulative little jerk, the audience can freely enjoy it when he frequently gets his comeuppance in the form of dumped-on-the-rear slapstick.

Yes I shelled out cash to see this in the movie theatre and it was a fun flick.Twins separated at birth story line.Disney really cleaned up the film and audio quality,I know because I have the VHS of the original film.It isn't one of Jackies best films,but it is great fun.Don't know if the DVD or VHS that AMAZON is offering will have the outakes at the end of the flick,but to my major dissapointment(and the rest of the audiences too) there were no outtakes at the end of the film.Lets hope they put some in for the DVD/VHS release.It's a keeper for a Jackie Chan collector.
