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".

News & Interviews for Revenge of the Green Dragons

Critic Reviews for Revenge of the Green Dragons

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (12)

... 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…

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.

December 23, 2014 | Full Review…

There's a good story somewhere in "Revenge of the Green Dragons," but it's not the one Lau and his colleagues chose to retell.

October 28, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This crudely made thriller plays like a stilted Cantonese riff on organized-crime cliches, substituting blood and brutality for novelty or insight.

Top Critic

Loo and Lau have borrowed so liberally from sources like GoodFellas [that] they're essentially dressing it in one-size-fits-all gangster-movie clothes.

October 24, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This crime drama wants to be a Chinese-American "Goodfellas," but it ends up just looking bad.

October 23, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
