YesAsia Editorial Description

Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung, now internationally famed action stars, collaborated to make Heart of Dragon in 1986. Apart from the stunning actions that normally appear in their movies, Heart of Dragon also has some touching moments when it comes to depicting the brotherhood between a cop (Jackie Chan) and his mentally challenged brother (Sammo Hung). Sammo Hung received a Best Director nomination and Jackie Chan got a Best Actor nomination for Heart of Dragon at the 5th Hong Kong Film Awards.

Films starring Jackie Chan and Sammo are often hard-boiled action or action comedies. However, Heart of Dragon, with its touching moments especially in the first half of the film, may be regarded as an unprecedented attempt of blending comedy, action, and melodrama. The film Rainman made three years later features a similar plot but without the action part. The movie follows a cop named Tat (Jackie Chan) who has always wanted to work as a sailor but he stays in the police force so as to have more time for his brother (Sammo Hung). Just when Tat prepares to quit his job, his brother gets involved in a robbery and is kidnapped...

Jackie's Dramatic Debut Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
Heart of the Dragon is a very interesting film, a good mix of Action and Drama, and quite a brave statement at the time.

While i have always had respect for Jackie and Sammo as actors, due primarily to their popularity as Comedic Action stars (This film was made after Project A and Wheels on Meals and during the filming for My Lucky Stars and Police Story) They never up until this point had a chance to prove it, and while Sammo would go on to make movies where he would play a more Dramatic role (To Err is Humane, Painted Faces) This is really the only time apart from Miracles that we get to see Jackie act.

While seeing Jackie and Sammo act is a real plus for me, the action is needed i think to give the film more balance. If you are going to have action in a JC or Sammo Film, you can't go half-hearted, you have to go all the way, and the action in this film is actually quite good, but this version is devoid of two excellent fight scenes, which although can be seen in the special features, are not shown in the film itself, which takes away some of the balance from the film and leaves it sort of empty. This does mean it's easier to concentrate on the acting however.

The film itself is about two brothers, The Elder Danny (Sammo) is Mentally Retarded, and acts like a 10 year old even though he is approaching middle age, while his Younger Brother Tat (Jackie) is a dedicated Police Sergeant in the RHKPD who is forced to take care of his older brother when their parents die in a car accident.

Tat is a Hardworking cop, but ever since he was a child he has wanted to be a sailor, yet he is forced to give up his dream to look after his brother Danny. He decides to marry his girlfriend (Emily Chu) so that he will have someone to look after Danny while he is out sailing, but his friends in the RHKPD think he is selfish for not caring for his brother.

Over time, Danny (while playing a harmless game with his friends) accidentally gets involved with a Jewelry Robbery, a case that his brother is assigned to crack. The criminals make this connection before Tat does, and Danny is kidnapped and held to ransom. Showing his true love for his brother, Tat breaks police protocol and rescues his brother with the support of his friends in the RHKPD, which leads into a thrilling finale at a construction site.

Overall this film isn't for everybody, but it should be appreciated for what it is. A lot of people think that People like Jackie can't act, yet this film proves he does, and some of the heartwarming melodrama between him and Sammo is evident in some scenes. The film also has a few Comedic overtones involving Sammo, such as when his friend gets in trouble with the Headmaster and asks Danny to pretend to be his father or when Danny is looking for work and gets a 'Job' at a cafe. The film has some memorable cameos by Lam Ching Ying as the SWAT Team leader, Wu Ma as a selfish shop owner (similar to his role in Mr. Vampire) and Anthony Chan Yau (of Wynners fame) as a cruel and evil tutor who makes Danny cry in one scene.The film also is the origin for Sui Hoh Seung Yi, a song which has been used in countless other movies (Here it's played seriously, but in most other movies it's for comedic effect).
This film is Highly recommended for anyone who thinks Jackie Chan can't act if his life depended on it.

Jackie can act! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
The Aspect Ration is 1.85:1 Letterbox. Running Time is 90 minutes. Sound is Dolby Digital 5.1 (Mandarin) and is OK! TV system is NTSC. NO English Subtitles, only Simplified Chinese. When the film starts there is no Media Asia logo, which probably means that this version is different than the MegaStar version. This movie shows that Jackie Chan can act as well, instead of being a stuntmaster!!

Good Beginning, Bad Ending Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
This movie has a good premise. Sammo was a retard and his brother Jackie took care of his daily live. The beginning of this movie features good acting and great character development. Jackie Chan even kissed his girl friend "several" times in a picnic scene. Unfortunately, it couldn't resist the temptation to sell out at the end. There was lot of guns and violence in the final battle between good and evil; but the ending was plain stupid. Five good cops ended up in jail because they wanted to rescue Sammo. Good beginning but bad ending.

Great drama Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is one of my all time favourite Jackie movies. The DVD picture quality is good, but as usual with Universe, no bonus extras, except a rather outdated (& in places incorrect) biography. It does have English subtitles. For action fans, don't expect the usual Jackie action, stunts etc. It IS a drama, and Jackie & Sammo Hung are superb. Sammo plays Jackie's mentally retarded older brother and the story revolves around Jackie rescuing Sammo from some jewel thieves. The end fight scene is spectacular and in places rather vicious (which is unusual in Jackie films). It was apparently choreographed by Yuen Biau. A great film if you want to see the more serious side of Jackie and Sammo Hung.
