Welcome Danger

Welcome Danger (1929)

My Rating

Movie Info

This comedy classic is the sound-film debut of enormously popular and brilliant silent comedian Harold Lloyd. He plays a gentle botany student who must reluctantly succeed his father as chief of police. He does a good job and ends up busting up a ring of drug dealers led by the enigmatic "Dragon." Later he discovers that the Dragon is really one of the most prominent and highly respected men in town. When not chasing bad-guys, the hero falls in love with a woman who has disguised herself as boy.

A present for fans of the bespectacled slapstick star.

This is not the film to catch the talented Lloyd do his stuff.

Audience Reviews for Welcome Danger

[font=Century Gothic][color=sienna]"Kung-Fu Hustle" starts out with one gang walking into a police station and walking out again with one of their wives who had been accused of spitting. Once they are outside of the police station, another gang, bigger and badder than they are, called the Axe Gang dressed in undertaker chic, comes along...the kind folks of Pig Sty Alley manage to keep out of such wordly concerns until an inept wannabe gangster drags them into this. [/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#a0522d][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#a0522d]"Kung-Fu Hustle" is a wonderfully inventive action movie. Yes, much of it does depend on special effects but they are all put to good use. As with "Shaolin Soccer", Stephen Chow seems to be sympathizing with the common man. "Kung-Fu Hustle" proves that you don't really need arcane philosophy to make a great action movie; just a great sense of fun. If there is a moral here, it is always to pay your landlord/landlady on time.[/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#a0522d][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=navy]"3-Iron" is your typical story of a young man who rides around on his motorcycle planting take-out circulars on front doors to mark whether or not the occupants are at home. When they are not at home, he stays the night but takes nothing and even tidies up somewhat. Eventually, he comes upon an upper scale dwelling where he thinks he is alone. But he comes upon a young woman who has been abused by her husband. The young man finds a creative use for a golf club.[/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#000080][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#000080]"3-Iron" is a unique movie. Neither of its protoganists say anything except for one sentence. I think it takes great courage to tell a story with so little dialogue and to have so much trust in the audience to follow the story in this way. Another plus is that it does not follow the usual thriller of the week storyline. I think director Kim Ki Duk is trying to make a statement about the nature of freedom and property. [/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=#000080][/color][/font]
[font=Century Gothic][color=darkslategray]"Welcome Danger" is another silent movie starring Harold Lloyd.(I know there is a version of this movie with some sound. This version is completely silent.) This one is about a botanist heading west to San Francisco and eventually becomes enbroiled in romance and drug smuggling in Chinatown. I found this film to be amusing, although sometimes a little too busy for its own good and not in the league with "Safety Last."[/color][/font]
