Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"High-spirited entertainment!"
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
"It's all pretty dumb, but if you're in the mood for this sort of thing, you won't have a bad time."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"...almost painful to watch. It's even harder to listen to, with such absurd lines as 'you're just a God-darn loser!' and 'don't be uptight!' popping out of the actors' mouths."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Among the Jackie Chan films, this one is probably one of the silliest and lamest."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"While diverting, remains one of Chan's more minor efforts."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Having two directors, and a different choreographer for each fight sequence, gives the movie a split personality -- and neither personality is particularly enjoyable to meet."
‑ Sean Means, Film.com
"The emphasis here is on farce rather than action, to an extent that may disappoint hard-core martial arts fanatics."
‑ Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
"Concentrates more on Chan's comedy than his kung fu."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"It's hard to imagine why it took two reputable directors to put together this dopey affair!"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Singularly unwatchable!"
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Amusing all the way and not something Chan fans should skip."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Heavy on the comedy, but the climactic fight scene is a Chan classic."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"A pretty sorry affair."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"For a movie directed by two Hong Kong legends, Tsui Hark and Ringo Lam, Twin Dragons drags!"
‑ Steven Boone, Citysearch
"Like most of Chan's other older films, this one's filled with plenty of amazing fight scenes, but also laughably bad English dubbing, mediocre acting at best, and a throwaway script designed only as a sparse skeleton upon which to hang the elaborate fight"
‑ Jim Judy, Screen It!
