REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS gives more of an impression rather than an actual story of the Chinese gangs and the human trafficking that was happening in New York City in the late 1980s and 90s. Devoid of scenes and replete with montage sequences, we never get a true sense of the film’s characters. A bright spot was the performance of Shuya Chang, who played Tina, a shy young woman who despises the violence of the Chinese gangs. The film had all the elements to be a great, but unfortunately it just isn’t that good.
