AMERICAN NINJA'S REVIEW: Bridge of Dragons is a 'by the numbers' action flick that has some good action scenes and a few moments of dry humor, making it tolerable enough to watch once. Dolph Lundgren stars as a soldier who helps a princess overthrow a brutal general who killed her father. It isn't as bad as it sounds. It also offers a few nice action scenes and exploits Lundgren's martial arts to full effect making it a must for fans of Dolph (All three of you). Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa ("Rising Sun","Mortal Kombat") is not bad in a role tailor made for John Lone. BOD is okay and an actually good B movie. However, the movie is still very flawed, it has too much of a Canadian feel to it and the acting is really something else and the movie contains tineared dialog and cheap melodrama. Still if you're are looking for a flick to watch at 2:30 am, BOD is the choice to make.
AMERICAN NINJA'S RATING: 5.5/10
