Year of the Dragon

Director: Michael Cimino
Year Released: 1985
Rating: 2.0

Vietnam Vet Mickey Rourke is a hard-boiled cop who doesn't play by the rules! John Lone is a Machiavellian Chinese Mafia leader who wants New York's Chinatown to be under his control! Watch as the two clash in a battle of wills! Will Rourke's hot-headedness endanger his estranged wife, young Chinese anchorwoman girlfriend and his career? Will Lone's recklessness catch up with him? New York City is about to erupt! (In summation: dialogue atrocious but co-screenwriter Oliver Stone's pointed comments about the behavior of Vietnam Vets dead-freakin'-on, sets colorful, gorgeous and expansive but the picture's too bloated for its own good.)
