Movie Info

In the vein of crime classics like MEAN STREETS and INFERNAL AFFAIRS, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang "The Green Dragons". The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. From acclaimed Director Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and legendary Executive Producer Martin Scorsese comes a brilliant mix between a Hong Kong action film and a New York City crime thriller, portraying the never-before-told true story of "The Green Dragons".

Critic Reviews for Revenge of the Green Dragons

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (22)

  • While the Revenge of the Green Dragons may recall a particular time period, frenetic visuals, impaired screenplay, and stilted performances distract at every turn.

    September 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Green Dragons is a top notch film - it was just released by the wrong producer.

    May 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • ... a solid crime drama that presents an alternative to the typical American gangster film often about a white man wreaking havoc.

    September 1, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Revenge boasts Martin Scorsese as an executive producer (and it really does boast - Scorsese's is the first name we see), but the clich-ridden narrative and patchy acting prevent the film from being Chinatown's answer to Goodfellas.

  • The self-inflating tale of two immigrant brothers, who join a Chinatown gang as kids, falls woefully short of significance, despite being executive produced by Martin Scorsese.

    January 16, 2015 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…
  • The representation of Asian American men as hot-blooded toughies in the film does put a dent in the omnipresent nerdy eunuch stereotype and the model-minority myth.
