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

Double Dragon is a great Movie!Scott And Mark are very cool as the lee brothers,and Robert Patrick is an awsome villian!

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.

Always loved this one, don't know why though =)

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).
