EXECUTIVE SUMMARY / COMMENTARY:
"Twin Dragons" (PG-13) -- a foreign film with English dubbed over (not subtitled), was a violent and sexual comic romp in the lives of two brothers separated at birth. At the time of separation and after a series of slapstick and Rube Goldberg style endangerments one of the pair was found by a drunk and drinking lady of the night who raised him. That brother grew up to be a street hustler. The other brother grew up to be a musical genius. After watching the violent separation of the two as babies, the script moved the clock to when the boys became middle age men. The theme relied on the speculation that siblings share some sort of mystic connection. When the maestro played the piano, the street hustler suffered uncontrollable movement of his fingers -- and other examples of sympathetic body control dotted the script. It was a really good comedy BUT as usual the comic front efficiently masked the plethora of invasive programming, giving a sense of the traditionally bad behavior being acceptable. But no matter how hidden, the invasive programming was there. Sad. It was a really good snorting comedy.
"Twin Dragons" presented a lot of footage of Jackie Chan in action - a god display of the Martial arts -- but it was still fighting to gain or to control. Karate is an art in and of itself and Jackie Chan is a master. As long as it is mastered, karate is an immeasurable defensive tool. But left unchecked it can be a tool for unfair and unwarranted advantage. And mimicked by the impressionable, it can be fatal as witnessed by the parents of a two year old girl killed by karate kicks from older boys pretending to be Power Rangers(tm). Karate can be dangerous and I know it works. So if you watch this movie with your young sons, talk to them about it okay?
And the use of firearms to control in a theme of gangster control "supported" the control by karate maneuvers. "Twin Dragons" also presented a lot of sexual material. No full nudity but much sexual innuendo, provocative dress and motions, inappropriate touch, heterosexual couple in bed (nudity was not seen but was obvious), and adult underwear. And if these were not enough, the movie presented a man in a bath towel (twice), grabbing of privates, dress to maximize the female form and leg and cleavage exposure, and implied bathtub nudity. "Twin Dragons" was a great Saturday night action-packed comedy movie made not-so-great by entertainment ignominy.
