Dragon Tiger Gate is a simple story about a few good guys kicking the asses of a bunch of bad guys. It’s got very cool martial arts fight scenes, and lots of macho posing by our heroes. Look.
I mean, really, how bloody cool is that!
Even though the story drags a bit when there’s no ass-kicking involved, I still enjoyed it a lot. The colors and set designs were very pretty. The fight scenes were well choreographed and blended seamlessly with CGI-ed stunts. The cinematography took this movie to another level, visually. I was nicely surprised. This was one of the first movies I’d watched in 2006 that rekindled my love for Hong Kong cinema.
If you have some time and the inclination for a bit of foreign cinema, do check out this clip. It’s the first eight minutes of the movie. And if it’s really interesting, this clip has the next nine minutes. It’s got two of my fav martial arts scenes, all in all. Not dial-up friendly, sorry! :(
