Here’s the trailer for the Martin Scorsese produced crime movie Revenge Of The Green Dragons and you can tell it has Scorsese’s stamp all over it on account of the 60s rock music and the casting of Ray Liotta.
The plot of Revenge Of The Green Dragons rattles along like so:
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”, 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.
Directed by Andrew Lau, (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo the film promises to be a New York city crime thriller mixed with Hong Kong action depicting the never-before-told true story of “The Green Dragons” one of the city’s most notorious gangs in the 80s.
I don’t know about you but this gang crime malarky looks like a glamourous blast, you get to run around in slow motion, have sex with stunning women, fire guns in public places and you do all of this while somebody in the background plays rock music at high volume. What’s not to like?
