Title: Double Dragon
Post by: Steve on April 26, 2003, 02:59:23 PM
Girl is kidnapped by gang, her boyfriend and his brother go after her, kick some ass. A simple yet correct story, perfect for some fun, quick, low-budget action flick. But nooo, somebody decided to throw away everything that was cool about Double Dragon, and made this piece of crap instead!

Finally martial arts and American popular culture meet in a film that is not just a single - star vehicle, but gives each cast member a chance to shine

I think if a movie is going to based on a game, comic, or cartoon the least they could have done is try to follow the storyline some what (the Double Dragon games don't take place in the future first of all).  changing something to meet the fans and non game playing audience needs are good but only when something won't work well on screen (like a superheroes costume.  They're not going to be the same in the X-Men movie).

Well, I thought the movie was pretty bad, myself. Then again there were some funny one liners, like 'I can see you! No you can't!' And the main villian was awesome, and capable of witty banter at any time! I also think that you should have a video clip of the ninja losing his eye!

I just bought the movie on dvd last night, for $5 - i would pay no more for it.  I only bought it for collectors reason.  The Movie is probably one of the most unwatchable pieces of cinema on earth, not only do the fight sequences suck, but so does the acting.  I unlike some of the writers here loved alyssa milano, she was the one saving point...but she was wearing too many clothings to help it.  I was very displeased by the way Abobo was portrayed.  The entire movie has nothing to do with the game, and should be called Double Lizards or some cheep rip off.  Word to your mother. Chuck ROck out.

I totally think that Double Dragon was a very cool movie! Unlike what some other people say I think that the acting was great! The fighting sequences were better than I actually thought they were gonna be. Billy and Koga Shuko were oh so hot! I think all of the actors did a very good job. Also, very very funny.

You know how H. P. Lovecraft wrote that there were things in the universe mankind was not meant to see?  Yep, he was talking about this one...

Why!!! Double Dragon was a big part of my childhood, their was no need to make a film of this (along with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter).

Maybe Final Fantasy will break the bad video game to movie mould.

The best thing about this was the fact that Shuko is a girl's name...Think about that the next time you watch it.

This movie is really pathetic. The actionscenes are tired and cliched and Mark Dacascos and Scott Wolf are numb and they try to insert lame comic relief, Robert Patrick is Hammy. And Alyssa Milano (Oscar winner from "Embrace Of The Vampire" :) ) is just plain bad.

The movie might work for kids, but anyone over the age of 12 will be bored to tears.

The ONE THING that might have given this movie any redeeming value would have been some Alyssa Milano nudity.  Unfortunately for all involved, this is the ONE MOVIE in which she does NOT shed her clothes.  Such a pity.  And yet, for overall entertainment value it beats Van Damme's "Street Fighter" movie (at least no major talents are wasted in this movie).

Ironically enough, to see a truer film adaption (IMO) of the Double Dragon game, check out Van Damme's "Cyborg", perhaps his finest film (that's not saying much, I know).

Did you notice that for brothers the 2 goofballs do not look very much alike.Go figure

I worked hard on this movie, dammit, not as hard as I worked on Mark Dasascos after shooting wrapped up for the day ;) The movie rools and does not suck. If it wasn't for this movie, I woulda never got noticed for Party of Five, besides did anyone ever notice I look kinda like the guy who played DJ's bf in Full House, same first name and everything :) Alyssa Milano looked great, too, in this.

This is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Even if it's far from the Double Dragon arcade games atmosphere, it's still far better than "Street Fighter" and "Mortal Kombat" movies.

DOUBLE DRAGON:THE AWFUL LIVE ACTION MOVIE.

There are many reasons that Hollywood are making bad movies based on video games like Street Fighter and Super Mario Bros.Double Dragon is a bad movie,It failed the box office
hit across the globe with a budget of $2.3 million in the US
and $3.6 million around the world nationwide.
This film has awful fight scenes and bad plot.There is no way that the Double Dragon 2 will not be a movie sequel right now.
Screw Double Dragon and Street Fighter.Those games to movie suck.

Best comment I ever saw for this film was

"It proves that identical twin brothers can come from different races"

Mark Dascascos is still hot though

Along with Super Mario Brothers, this is another one of my guilty pleasures.(I'm a big Marc Dascascos fan. Don't hurt me.)

I rented this movie in the mid-1990s on a day when I was in a really good mood.  I had just recovered from something very depressing and was feeling great.  So I probably enjoyed this movie more than it deserved to be enjoyed.

The only character I really liked was Robert Patricks character.  Who would have thought hed look so good with that ridiculous early-1990s fashion sense?  The bottle-blond pompadour, the Fu Manchu goatee, the hipster/yuppie business suit.

(While Im at it, whats the deal with Hollywood casting white guys as Asian villains?  It bothers my friend Ryan a lot more than it bothers me, but then he has a whole thing about Asians.  Is it true colour-blind casting, or is someone really not paying attention to the character names and descriptions?)

However, I also loved the lines:

It will make you as strong as ten men.
Im *already* as strong as ten men!

I still quote that bit occasionally.  :-)

I dont know if I would enjoy this movie as much now that Im no longer in that great mood.  It has bad writing, bad acting, bad costumes, bad sets, bad effects, and it breaks one of my rules by being set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Why were there two guys who looked like Al Leong, and neither of them was Al Leong?

The video game was great, Alyssa Milano was hot and the T-1000 from Terminator 2 looked horribly gay.

Thank God that this movie clearly doesn't take itself very seriously. How else can you explain a Double Dragon arcade machine not only being in the film, but being FOCUSED ON by the friggin' camera. The film had decent special effects considering how cheap it was. Connection to the games is minimal at best, but the film did spawn a spin-off cartoon series! Not a classic, not even among VG movies, but fun.

Why do one of the brothers look like they're from China(Or Japan, I can't tell the difference)?

Holy dammit christmas this is a stinker...

I swear it looks the whole movie was made by the guys who shot the intro of "the fresh prince of Bel-air" just running amok with camera equipment...

and I bet Robert Patrick (Shuko in this) would punch you in the throat for bringing up this film

I think the film AlphaWoolf is thinking of is "Double Impact", that's the one where Van-Damme plays twins, and has a plot similar to the Double Dragon arcade game. "Cyborg" didn't have any twins, or share any other similiarities with "Double Dragon", so I'm sure it was "Double Impact" he was thinking of.

P.S. This film was okay. It was (intentionally) silly, but kind of fun. I'd still rather see this (and the other 90s VG films) then Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, House of the Dead etc.

I watched this film the other day.  I wouldn't say I loved it, but it was interesting to see much of the source material was left out.

Melissa Milano was so hot in this movie. (she's the only excuse to watch it.)
I don't care what anyone says.
But this movie was absolute crap.
They put a 'Double Dragon' arcade machine in the game, for god sake.
It's a bit of a mindf*ck when you see it and think about the movie itself.
