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 didnt 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.
