Year of the Dragon review: Mickey Rourke Deserved Better | AndersonVision
Year of the Dragon has a lot going on. A Vietnam Vet is now a Police Captain trying to clean up Triad criminal activity. While he cheats on his wife with an Asian reporter, he also has to deal with slightly racist views towards the Triad criminal element. Given that it was 1985, nobody really concerned themselves with stellar roles for minority actors. Basically, every other person from Big Trouble in Little China exists in this movie to get attacked by Mickey Rourke.
