Green Dragon

Critics Consensus

Green Dragon struggles to control its sentimental tendencies, but its flaws are just outweighed by an affecting -- and often overlooked -- perspective on the Vietnam War.

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (11)

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

    July 26, 2002 | Rating: A
  • 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.

    July 25, 2002 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Just when the movie seems confident enough to handle subtlety, it dives into soapy bathos.

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

    July 19, 2002 | Rating: 3/4
  • Drives for the same kind of bittersweet, conciliatory tone that Three Seasons achieved but loses its way in rhetorical excess and blatant sentimentality.

    July 18, 2002 | Rating: 2/5
  • The images are usually abbreviated in favor of mushy obviousness and telegraphed pathos, particularly where Whitaker's misfit artist is concerned.
