Dragon Tiger Gate (Long Fu Mon-2006)

Dragon Tiger Gate

Donnie Yen ... Dragon Wong
Nicholas Tse ... Tiger Wong
Shawn Yue ... Turbo Shek
Louis Koo ... Shibumi (Voice-over)

Dragon Tiger Gate is a martial arts academy established by three youngsters, Tiger Huang , Little Dragon Huang and Black Dragon Shi. Adopted as children by kung fu master Huang Jianglong, they aspire to impart the spirit of Chinese martial arts to the world. The final showdown between good and evil is a spectacular battle that makes the walls of Dragon Tiger Gate quake.

Can I say something here? I've fallen head over heels for Shawn Yue and Nicholas Tse. I understand now. These two are two to be reckoned with. Holy Moly, Enchilada, Mary Mother of God!!! Whew!

I'm so impressed with their martial art style. These two remind me of Kwon Sang Woo and Song Seung Hun. You put these two together and you have a movie match made in heaven. So be it with Shawn and Nick! I've saved a couple more of their movies and am looking forward to watching them. I'm melting for this art....their martial artwork.

This movie itself, storyline wise, wasn't all that to me. Too rushed. No definition of certain characters. Shawn's character was totally lost in purgatory. I think they should have added atleast another half hour on him alone. His character only had a few lines and didn't seem well worth it for his talents.

Choreograpy...this movie was amazing. I want to learn karate and tae kwon do. I'm so envious of their talent that it makes me want to just learn a bit.

More Nick pics! Yea!!!!
