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.

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)?
« Reply #25 on: November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM »

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.

Im gonna live a rockstar life. Money, b***hes, and fame. Because my mommy said I can do anything I put my mind to.
