Critic Reviews for Dragón Verde

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10)

An honest, sensitive story from a Vietnamese point of view.

July 26, 2002
Houston Chronicle
Top Critic

Earnest, unsubtle and Hollywood-predictable, Green Dragon is still a deeply moving effort to put a human face on the travail of thousands of Vietnamese.

Top Critic

Just when the movie seems confident enough to handle subtlety, it dives into soapy bathos.

Newsday
Top Critic

Plays as hollow catharsis, with lots of tears but very little in the way of insights.

July 19, 2002
L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

A lyrical, bittersweet film about what could be termed a by-product of battle.

July 19, 2002
New York Post
Top Critic

Drives for the same kind of bittersweet, conciliatory tone that Three Seasons achieved but loses its way in rhetorical excess and blatant sentimentality.

Audience Reviews for Dragón Verde

½

Little known Patrick Swayze, Forest Whitaker gem. Takes a very different look at the war and some of the other aspects of the war and the people it left behind.

Its emotional kick is muffled by long-windedness, sentimental overkill and an overpopulated character gallery.
