"Dragon" has enough interesting left turns in style, mood and psychodrama to make it stand out.

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2012-11-30

 

The movie hurtles along at a pitch of sentiment and melodrama that would make MGM blush, and it's mostly very diverting.

Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, 2012-11-30

 

The widescreen cinematography and mountain rain-forest locations retain their interest, as does the deftly incongruous score, which ranges from samba to hard rock.

Mark Jenkins, NPR, 2012-11-29

 

A martial-arts morality play as lithe as it is forceful.

Mary Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2012-11-29

 

What it lacks in plot development, it gains in sheer momentum and an outstanding performance.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2012-11-29

 

Yen's strengths have never been in his expressiveness, and Dragon plods when it centers on dramatic struggles, then leaps exhilaratingly to life whenever the fighting begins.

Alison Willmore, AV Club, 2012-11-29

 

It's an adept genre exercise with rare primal depths.

Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, 2012-11-27

 

Hi-ya!-accentuated kung fu smackdowns make everything better.

Keith Uhlich, Time Out, 2012-11-27

 

As a whole, it does not quite work, especially at the end, when Mr. Chan tries for a Shakespearean climax of filial rebellion and paternal rage.

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2012-11-29

 

The large canvas and pseudo-superhero tactics work for a bit, but then the action gets sidetracked in place of myth-building.

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2012-11-29
