  1. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  2. Dalibor's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    An almost-orthodox mafia drama, with elements of a blockbuster action movie. The bad thing is, none of that appears to be what director was going for. Watch it as an action packed stand-off in Chinatown and you'll feel cheated. Watch it as an insight in war veterans' coming together with lost past and you'll feel disappointed.

  3. Luis Pires's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Great performances from Rourke and Lone! Also, great to see Victor Wong. Bonus points for the translator nuns.

  4. Alex's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  5. Federico Boswarlos's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Fascinating. Simultaneously embodying the best and the worst of 80s action movies and Cimino's self-indulgent idiosyncracy.

  6. GIYGAS's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    it's like the godfather, the horrible godfather

  7. William's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Machismo insanity courtesy of Mickey Rourke, but Cimino's ambition and craft are undeniable.

  11. Fırat Ataç's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Stanley White takes down Chinatown!

  12. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Another really solid film from Michael Cimino that once again proves he was a misunderstood genius and also serves to showcase the great Mickey Rourke's incredible versatility as an actor- it might be one of his best performances.

  13. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  14. Nikita Rasskazov's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Overuse of cliches and cheesy love line give the film a bitter taste in the end. Its strongest points are in inventive cinematography and sound/music usage (except sex episodes). And witty dialogues along with ferocious action seem to forestall the 00's wave of Korean cinema.

  15. le Gars's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Great movie about an obsession. Beautifully directed.

  16. Z's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Michael Cimino, Oliver Stone and Mickey Rourke lunge for viewer's throats with this ferocious, kinetic, uncompromising, fast and brutal thriller! Rourke is in peak form playing the volatile Stan White, swaggering about, throwing his hat around for emphasis as he battles the whole world. "Dragon" takes off like a rocket during it's violent set pieces. It's blunt crime cinema of superior force and propulsive intensity.

  17. THE APOLL0's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Cimino's take on the Big Heat in 80's New York

  18. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    bellissimo e sarebbe stato anche un 4 però poi magari sembra che Cimino sia il mio regista preferito

  19. Ghostman's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  20. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Cimino goes pretty far by making a gangster movie that serves as a metaphor for the Vietnam war and studies racism trought the very complex character of Mickey Rourke, who you don't really like, but still care for his goal. The cinematography is simply gorgeous and the action is spectacular. There's no doubt this inspired a lot of 90's gangster flick, especially King of New York.

  21. Cosi's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  22. petit astronaute's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

  23. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    Grandissima pellicola di Cimino,che ha il talento e la mano necessaria per far convivere sullo schermo lo stridente ossimoro violenza-eleganza.Rimandi evidenti al suo cinema(l incubo Vietnam),ignoranza vivida e tangibile ma mai gratuita,scontro razziale(ed economico)a livelli davvero alti.La gestione dello spazio scenico è grandiosa,con un'alternanza tra coralità e individualità vista poche altre volte.Vero Cult.

  24. Mark Garrett's rating of the film Year of the Dragon

    The bold decisions feel applied with a paintbrush. Thus adorned, Stanley clashes against crime in reverse, wherein he and everyone he interacts with are thrust into tragedy, this a consequence of behavior and universal truths rather than whims of frivolity. Smartly directed, beautifully masked.
