Dragon Tiger Gate (HK 2006)

Director : Wilson Yip
Producer : Raymond Wong Pak Ming
Production Company : Mandarin Films Ltd

‘Dragon Tiger Gate’ is the creation of popular animator and comic writer Tony Wong Yuk-Long. The story follows the fate of ‘Tiger Dragon Gate’, a martial arts sect founded by Tiger Wong, Dragon Wong and Turbo Shek – three youths who passionately believe in justice and truth. The three heroes unknowingly take possession of a gold plaque that holds staff of power of one of the largest Asian criminal organisation – Lousha Gate. They become the target of this wicked power and ignite a battle between good and evil.

Jackie Chan is the greatest person alive today. If his film career could have one film that summed up what Chan can bring to the table, you would have to see Drunken Master II to see what the man has to offer. Every problem you have with Jackie’s American flicks can easily be forgotten when you throw this bad boy into your DVD player. It shows how you can blend the right amount of comedy and the right amount of action into a film.
