Editorial Reviews

In the vein of House of Flying Daggers, this martial arts film is action-packed with fun, stylized martial arts scenes. A young noblewoman falls in love with a prince of the Imperial House. By accident, she acquires the martial arts skills of the White Dragon. New in her power, she learns that there are definite advantages in performing "good deeds" as the Little White Dragon. When she discoversthat the famed assassin, Chicken Feathers, is planning to kill her beloved prince, she seeks to prevent this by killing the assassin first. After more than one unsuccessful attempt, she begins to grow in her compassion and understanding for the blind assassin. The real plot behind the assassinationattempts on the prince is uncovered because of her decisions.

Customer Reviews

This is a very touching story, great humor, and fight scenes.
A. C. Luke
If you want hard core action go find a different movie but if you want a good movie that will make you laugh then this is the one for you.
Tony
The White Dragon does so well at keeping a steady sense of humor throughout the film, and also is heartfelt.

One can never understand the humor and spirit in this movie if one does not understand Cantonese or has not lived in Hong Kong. This is meant to be a light-hearted comedy! The dialogs are filled with contemporary everyday Hong Kong slangs! When translated into English, they may seem stupid and out-of-place, but the movie uses these dialogs ON PURPOSE to achieve a brillant level of mocking humor. This is not meant to be an epic, but a very enjoyable movie by all means.

Perhaps the one flaw with "wire-fu" movies is that they tend to take themselves too seriously -- humor is pretty much absent from movies like "Hero" or "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon." That isn't a problem with "White Dragon," a humorous little action/romance flick that never quite gets serious. Not too much, anyway.

Black Pheonix (Cecilia Cheung) is an average airhead schoolgirl -- she thinks about her looks, school, clothes, her looks, the handsome second prince, and her looks. But when the aged hero White Dragon (Nay Suet) is injured, she bestows her powers on Black Pheonix. And a bad case of acne, which White Dragon assures her can be cured by doing good deeds.

Pheonix is starting to enjoy her heroic alter ego -- White Dragon Jr. -- when she is called on to capture the blind assassin Chicken Feathers (Francis Ng). But she breaks her leg during the fight, and to her surprise, Chicken Feathers brings her to his home and nurses her back to health. Now Pheonix must make a choice -- save the blind outlaw, or wed the hunky prince?

When watching this film, do not take it seriously, unless it wants to be taken seriously. The first half of it is an unabashed joke -- where else could you see an ancient Chinese musician smash her lute, while the audience does the wave? McDonald's, baseball, designer handbags, and Latin pop tunes all get name-dropped over the course of the movie. And when Pheonix gets her powers, a downloading bar appears on the bottom of the screen.

The plot sags a bit when Pheonix and Chicken Feathers spend time together at his cottage, and you start wondering when the plot will get moving again. And when it does, some of the humour has gone, as a broken-spirited Chicken Feathers wanders aimlessly through the town.

THE WHITE DRAGON

Despite what others may think this is not the 1968 version at all, in fact that one had a male White Dragon. In the case of this film the Dragon title goes to the lovely Cecilia Cheung, so as you can see this is a different film. Now with that said I can tell you that this is a very fun film and you should know that going in. I have been around some people expecting this to be some epic because of the cover art. Needless to say they were surprised but they did indeed enjoy once they got that it was a comedy.

Black Pheonix (Cecilia Cheung) is just another girl at just another school worrying about average girl stuff. You know friends, herself, and of course boys, one in particular that is, the young prince. Of course she starts to develop a relationship with him when see notices that she has developed acne. As all of this is happening the schools principal is killed in the middle of the night by an assassin, an assassin named "CHICKEN FEATHERS".

Yes with an intimidating name like that how can one not shiver at the mere sound of a cluck. Any way the first White Dragon is wounded by this assassin and hands the powers of such title over to Pheonix. She eventually learns to love the new abilities she possesses and starts to use them well, until she is called upon. What is she asked to do you might ask, well take out Chicken Feathers of course. So she is off to do battle with him and thus the battle ensues and it is a good one, until. Until her leg is broken in the fight and he takes her in, that is right he takes her in to care for her. This is were the film gets excellent as they go back and forth one upping each other or trying to. The film blossoms from there making it a comedy with a little romance and a whole lot of treachery [you'll see].

Okay, from about the second I turned this movie on I said "what the hell?"

The English dub starts out with basically a valley girl accent that doesn't appear to fit the movie whatsoever. The movie then goes from bad to worse, with something approximating the Chinese equivalent of a US high school, but set who-knows-when...

The problem with the movie isn't so much the movie itself (though it's pretty bad, if you're not prepared for what it actually is)... The problem is that it's marketed all wrong. By comparing the movie to House of Flying Daggers, a certain expectation is set up that the movie in no way shape or form lives up to.

The bottom line on this movie is that it's largely a satire on the martial arts genre. That's fine and all, but attempting to mask that and make the promotional text on the package make it seem like it's in the realm of other high class, artistic, well-written, and moreover SERIOUS martial arts dramas is disingenuous at the minimum.

If the packaging had made clear that this is a SPOOF of the martial arts genre, I would be less upset about purchasing it. In fact, I WOULD HAVE PURCHASED IT just for that (as I happened to be looking for decent spoofs at the time).

So, I guess what I'm upset about is that the movie isn't what the box says it is.

Now, getting past that, the movie actually has a few rather funny moments (a "power transfer bar," the whole scene rewinding when the heroine asks someone to repeat herself, etc.)... But it's also mixed up with a romantic storyline that tries to be slightly serious. Unfortunately, that puts it at odds with the comedy, and I don't really think it works.
