A hot-shot lawyer is hired by a Hong Kong chemical plant to dispose of opposition to their polluting ways.

“A bona fide action masterpiece & one of the great films of the 1980s. Taking an influence from everything from Buster Keaton & Gene Kelly, to comic books & police procedurals, Dragons Forever finds its stars Chan, Sammo & Biao delivering some of the most astounding, jaw-dropping action choreography ever captured on film. In the process it pushes the conception of a “physical cinema” far beyond its limited capacities.” – Lights After Dusk, MUBI
“the trio of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, and Biao Yuen never fail. there films may run together at times, but they never fail to entertain.” – Zachary Curl, MUBI
