The true story of one of the most notorious street gangs in New York in the 1980’s and 1990’s is about to come to life on the big screen in the upcoming film Revenge of the Green Dragons.
Back in the 1980’s many people from other nations flocked to the United States in search of the American Dream; the ability to make a life for themselves through hard work in a profession of their choosing.
Unfortunately, not everyone chose the correct path and enter a form of legitimate business.
Just in case you’re not entirely familiar with the premise of the upcoming crime drama, here is a quick look at the official synopsis for Revenge of the Green Dragons courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
“Two immigrant brothers, Sonny and Steven, survive the hard streets of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang The Green Dragons. The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is.”
In the trailer, which you can see below, you can see how determination and a series of bad decision quickly lead to violence and the destruction of everything they have worked so hard to attain.
