Cast:

Donnie Yuen

Nicholas Tse

Shawn Yue

 

Following their successful partnership with SPL, super action star Donnie Yen and director Wilson Yip reunite for the highly anticipated movie Dragon Tiger Gate. Together with Nicholas Tse (New Police Story) and Shawn Yue (Dragon Squad), Yen forms an invincible trio in this movie adaptation of Tony Wong's hugely popular, long-running Hong Kong comic series. The film brings alive the dynamic action and visually stunning fighting scenes from the comic books. Packed with hard-boiled action sequences, the film features 5 large-scale fighting scenes, all choreographed by Donnie Yen.

 

Donnie Yen is Dragon, who left the martial arts organization Dragon Tiger Gate years ago and is now working under triad leader Ma Kwun (Chen Kuan Tai, star of many Shaw Brothers swordplay films). Ma Kwun gets the Lousha Plaque which grants him the exclusive rights to do business with Shibumi, the evil leader of the Lousha Sect. Dragon's long-lost brother Tiger (Nicholas Tse), still living in Dragon Tiger Gate, accidentally gets hold of the Plaque, and the two brothers finally cross paths...

 

The film eventually climaxes in some spectacular fighting sequences set in the mysterious Lousha headquarters, with Dragon, Tiger, and Turbo Shek (Shawn Yue) fighting against the savage Shibumi. Apart from astounding action, Dragon Tiger Gate also contains many touching moments, which is where director Wilson Yip's strength lies. The movie co-stars Yuen Wah from Kung Fu Hustle as the kung fu master of Dragon Tiger Gate. Mainland actresses Dong Jie and Li Xiaoran play Ma Kwun's sweet daughter and vixen Lousha respectively. Tony Wong, creator of the original comic series, makes a cameo as a martial arts expert, and fans of the original comic series will surely find his appearance remarkable.

^ I agree. Donnie Yen looked pretty good which is.. interesting.

 

Yeah I liked this movie. The action scenes were good, there was some humor, and the plot was just whatevers, but still a decent movie. It's pretty rare for a good plot to pop up in one of these action flicks.

This movie was not that good. The fight scenes without the over the top special effects were kind of cool. But the plot was almost non-existent.

my opinion are cut donnie yen's hair little bit,because very annoying.and nicholas tse too slim.

Didn't like this movie too much. The action was decent, but the story line didn't impress me like I thought it would in the beginning. Overall, wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

This movie had too much action and not enough story, all the characters were a bit weird, especially Shawn Yue.

Somebody knows about a second part of the movie?

I love the comics! I really enjoy them. The action is quite good, but its right, some story is missing.

A must see for comic and wire-fights fans.

This movie is Ku Fu busting. Now they hardly make moves like these. Fighting movies are good.
