'Double Dragon'

‘Double Dragon’ (1994) Domestic box office: $2,341,309 Why the game succeeded: Cooperative game-play allowed introverted arcade junkies to team-up to beat the bad guys. The opportunity to act out secret Bruce Lee fight fantasies didn’t hurt either. The movie? Game over: Serious “"Double Dragon"” fans expected a serious "“Double Dragon"” movie, but instead they got a jokey, hokey, half-serious martial arts film with Alyssa Milano thrown in for eye candy. But not even a pretty girl could save the lame jokes.Gramercy Pictures
