Movie Info

International martial arts superstar Jackie Chan directed and choreographed (along with veterans Corey Yuen and Fung Hark-on) this action-packed follow-up to The Young Master. Chan also stars as Dragon, a rebellious young man who is always getting into trouble along with his best friend, Cowboy (Feng Sing). The friends soon meet Tiger (Michael Chan), a desperate man in hiding from the Chinese Imperial Guardsmen who conspired with him to steal a number of priceless artifacts from the Forbidden City. Tiger's fellow guardsmen were intending to sell the treasures to foreign interests and divide the money, but Tiger left before the transaction could be completed. What neither Tiger nor Cowboy knows is that the Captain of the Guards (Whang Ing-sik) is working in collaboration with the latter's corrupt father to pull off the illicit deal. Tiger goes back and purloins some of the artifacts, escaping with the guards in hot pursuit, as they need a complete collection to maintain their agreement with the buyers. Dragon and Cowboy remain blissfully unaware of the situation and give Tiger a place to seek shelter, only to face the wrath of the Captain and his men when their hiding place is discovered. Stand-out sequences include the final battle between Dragon and the Captain inside a large barn and a scene in which the precariously perched Dragon tries to keep from falling off a steep roof as the guards stick sharp spears through it from below. Dragon Lord also inaugurated Chan's practice of including clips of misfired stunts and injuries at the end of his films.

Not Chan's best work. No real grace or flow to action. Cheap.

Audience Reviews for Dragon Strike (Long xiao ye) (Dragon Lord) (Young Master in Love)


Girls get happy when guys get funny. A gang of thieves settle their greatness through a series of games similar to hacky sack mixed with martial arts. Dragon, a martial arts student, is constantly after girls. He finds that the only way to get what he wants is to enter the tournament, he and his friends to win, and make a name for himself. He finds this task harder than it may appear. "One little, two little, six little Indians. Six little Indian boys." "You left out like three Indians." Jackie Chan, director of Project A 1 & 2, Police Story 1 & 2, Who Am I, 1911, Chinese Zodiac, My Story, Armour of God 1 & 2, and The Brothers, delivers Dragon Lord. The storyline for this picture is very mediocre and the action is creative but not as good as one may hope for. The acting is fairly cliché and the cast includes Jackie Chan, Jessica Gee, Cam Clarke, and Wai-Man Chan. "I send them nice girls and you send them running." I grabbed this off Netflix as a Jackie Chan martial arts picture I had never seen. I thought this was a step down from his Project A and Operation Condor pictures. This was a very average martial arts film that is only worth watching if you're a fan of the genre. "Locate him, catch him, kill him." Grade: C

The flick offered nothing new for me but the hacky sack (shuttle-cock) scene was great though. "I'm pretty sure he's been given the sack."-Cowboy (Mars)

Admittedly different but not very exciting Jackie Chan entry, with the always-affable Chan finding himself with lots of unoffending martial arts action in an attempt to stop the theft of valuable ancient artifacts.
