This is London

There are good action sequences but it has been ham-fistedly cut for UK distribution.

Yen again proves one of the few martial artists equally adept with subtler emotional beats.

Chan's film may be derivative of plenty of other films (most notably David Cronenberg's A History of Violence) but it manages to keep things fresh and exciting.

Full of blistering action sequences worthy of the Shaw Brothers legacy. A treat for martial arts fans.

Grolsch Film Works

a mannered mix of detective story, morality tale, family tragedy and Buddhist allegory, all wrapped in virtuoso visuals and some very tricksy action choreography... The story may be familiar, but wuxia has never quite looked like this before.

Peter Ho-Sun Chan's frenetic, high-kicking thriller runs a full 20 minutes shorter than it did at Cannes in 2011 and feels all the better for it.

An exhilarating opening fight scene sets the stage for this otherwise cheesy chop-socky Hong Kong saga.

Dragon delivers a few swift kicks and a barrage of bone crunching punches to the standard expectations of a remake. Dragon is a stunning display of martial arts action, mesmerizing detective work, and engaging performances.

Gracefully acted, brilliantly shot, and effortlessly combining both character study and superb butt kicking, Wu Xia is an excellent post-modern subgenre gem.

"Dragon" has enough interesting left turns in style, mood and psychodrama to make it stand out.

The movie hurtles along at a pitch of sentiment and melodrama that would make MGM blush, and it's mostly very diverting.

As a whole, it does not quite work, especially at the end, when Mr. Chan tries for a Shakespearean climax of filial rebellion and paternal rage.

The widescreen cinematography and mountain rain-forest locations retain their interest, as does the deftly incongruous score, which ranges from samba to hard rock.

The large canvas and pseudo-superhero tactics work for a bit, but then the action gets sidetracked in place of myth-building.

What it lacks in plot development, it gains in sheer momentum and an outstanding performance.

Yen's strengths have never been in his expressiveness, and Dragon plods when it centers on dramatic struggles, then leaps exhilaratingly to life whenever the fighting begins.

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

A fun collision of "A History of Violence," traditional over-the-top Hong Kong martial arts pictures and sort of a "C.S.I.: Yunnan Province."
