Twin Dragons | 1992 | PG-13 | - 3.5.4

Separated-at-birth twins find themselves fighting off bad guys together in Hong Kong. Jackie Chan stars as both. With Maggie Cheung, Teddy Robin Kwan, Sylvia Chang, Chu Yuan, Nina Li Chi and John Keung.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Several instances of sexual innuendo and a few kisses. One implied sex scene: a shirtless man with his pants unbuttoned jumps onto a bed and starts kissing a woman passionately; we later see them lying in bed with sheets pulled up to their shoulders. A man taps his fingers on a woman's scantily clad buttocks, a man smacks another's clothed buttocks and a man grabs a nude statue's breast. An obviously nude woman stands in front of a man, though we only see her bare shoulders. And we see the bare shoulders of two men and a woman while they're in a hot tub. We also see a man wearing a towel, a woman in a robe and a few women in tight, short, cleavage-revealing dresses.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Many fights -- some are extended scenes -- in which people are punched, kicked, elbowed and hit with various objects. There are a also couple of shootouts: many people are shot (with some blood in some cases). A man is shot with a spear (it only pierces his life jacket). We see a photograph of a wrecked cars with an obviously dead but unbloodied man inside. A few men burn their hands and arms (we hear a sizzling noise). A large light falls on a man's head and a man is thrown in a car trunk and his back is hit repeatedly with the door. A woman hits a man's head with a vase and bites a man's arm, a woman is thrown onto a couch and grabbed roughly by the wrist and a man cracks a woman's back and neck while she's lying on a bed. Men are bound with their legs spread apart; a man threatens to hit their crotches with a bat. A baby in a wheelchair rolls down a hill but is relatively unharmed (we see a few bruises on his face). There's a lot of reckless driving and several car crashes: A man grabs onto a moving car is dragged for a little bit, and a man is hit by a car and bounced back and forth between two cars (played for laughs). Motor boats also chase and run into each other. A few falls and many explosions (in one scene, we see a few people on fire afterwards), some threatening with guns and knives, as well as some verbal threats. We see a couple of bruises and slightly bloody facial abrasions and a few people with bandages on all or part of their bodies or faces (some of the bandages are bloody).

LANGUAGE 4 - Several anatomical references, a few scatological references, lots of mild obscenities and many insults and name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
