    This article is about the 1982 martial arts film. For other uses, see Dragon Lord (disambiguation). Dragon Lord Dragon-Lord-poster.jpg Original Hong Kong poster. Directed by Jackie Chan Produced by Raymond Chow Leonard Ho Written by Jackie Chan Edward Tang Barry Wong Starring Jackie Chan Mars Hwang In-Shik Tien Feng Cinematography Chan Chung-yuen Chen Chin-kui Edited by Peter Cheung Distributed by Golden Harvest Release date 21 January 1982 Running time 102 minutes (Hong Kong Version) Country Hong Kong Language Cantonese Box office US$14.43 million Dragon Lord AKA Dragon Strike (simplified Chinese: 龙少爷; traditional Chinese: 龍少爺) is a 1982 Hong Kong martial arts action film, written and directed by Jackie Chan, who also stars in the film. It was originally supposed to be a sequel to The Young Master and even had the name Young Master in Love until it was changed to Dragon Lord. The film experimented with various elaborate stunt action sequences in a period setting, serving as a transition between Chan's earlier comedy kung fu period films (such as Drunken Master and The Young Master) and his later stunt-oriented modern action films (such as Project A and Police Story).[1] Contents 1 Plot 2 Cast 3 Production 4 Release and box office 5 Reception 5.1 Awards and nominations 6 See also 7 References 8 External links Plot Dragon (Jackie Chan) is the son of a Chinese aristocrat who is always getting in trouble, and likes to skip his lessons.

His later films all include outtakes.[7] Release and box office In its original Hong Kong theatrical run, Dragon Lord grossed HK $17,936,344[8] (US$3 million).[9] The film did not make as much as it was expected to in Hong Kong, but was a big hit in Japan.[10] It was 1982's ninth highest-grossing foreign film in Japan,[11] where it grossed ¥1.1 billion (US$10 million) in box office revenue.[12] In Taiwan, it grossed NT$5,990,232 (US$202,263), becoming the 14th highest-grossing film of 1982.[13] In South Korea, it was the highest-grossing film of 1982, with 298,122 box office admissions in Seoul,[14] equivalent to approximately ₩894.4 million[15] (US$1.223 million).[16] Combined, the film's total box office gross in East Asia was approximately US$14.43 million, equivalent to US$45 million adjusted for inflation in 2018.[17] Hong Kong Legends released the DVD on 25 August 2003 in the United Kingdom.[18] Dimension Films released the film on DVD in the U.S. on 11 May 2004.[19] Reception Joey O'Bryan of The Austin Chronicle rated it 2.5/5 stars and wrote that the film, while not one of Chan's best, is an early attempt to take the genre into a new direction and set the stage for many of Chan's better, more-realized films. O'Bryan highlighted the film's climactic fight as a "worth the price of admission all by itself".[20] TV Guide rated it 3/5 stars and wrote, "Aside from the meandering, stop-and-go screenplay, there's much to admire about the film. "[7] John Sinnott of DVD Talk rated it 3.5/5 stars called it a "fun movie" that moves away from conventional martial arts films.[19] Awards and nominations 1983 Hong Kong Film Awards: Nomination: Best Action Choreography (Jackie Chan, Fung Hak-on, Yuen Kuni)
