Press Quotes

Dragons Forever teams up three of Hong Kong cinema's greatest martial arts stars at the peak of their careers and quite predictably its action is off the charts... 88 Films' release offers three different versions of the film fully restored in 4K, plus a massive selection of exclusive new and archival bonus features. It is one of the best releases that I have seen from the label's catalog. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

     —Blu-ray.com

Dragons Forever is incredibly fun and rather funny.

     —JEFFREY KAUFFMAN, Blu-ray.com

For their swan song as a trio, Jackie Chan, Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, and Yuen Biao deliver a highly entertaining film that showcases not only their talents but what Hong Kong action cinema was capable of before its decline in the 1990s.

     —MICHAEL DEN BOER, 10k Bullets

The action/antics play out fairly well, proving to be chuckle inducing, while, the action/fight choreography plays to Chan’s strengths.

     —RALPH POTTS, AVS Forum

Offering a mix of martial arts action with romance and comedy, it’s considered to be one of the finest showcases for all three.

     —TIM SALMONS, The Digital Bits
