Outlaw Brothers (1990/Dragon Dynasty/Weinstein/Anchor Bay DVD)


Picture: C     Sound: C     Extras: D     Film: C+



Two thieving brothers, James and Bond, steal high end cars for a living, but soon find themselves in more trouble when local mob boss wants in on their profits and then they accidentally stole a car from an international drug smuggling ring with their shipment hidden inside and have foreign gangsters chasing after them.  That's not to mention a butt-kicking policewoman Tequila on their tails too in Frankie Chan’s Outlaw Brothers (1990).


Two smart crooks who steals cars for the chop shops find they have stolen one car too many.  They can out smart, out fight any lock or police on their tails… that is until a certain female police officer wants to catch them red handed and she goes undercover to seduce one of them, but the two brothers knowing she is an undercover cop decides to play her along to play her instead.  Things get rapid more serious when they find themselves in a large drug operation and they must set aside their differences temporary to catch a bigger criminal.


This was a comical martial arts move, sort like one of Jackie Chan's comical movies and Director Frankie Chan co-stars in this one.  What was more comical was to watch the various inept cops who get out smarted or beat up or the one cop who has a major crush on his female boss but can't stand to see others flirt with her.  In the end the two thieves are almost like Robin Hoods, stealing from the rich and saving the day, but cops still have job to do.  The video master used looks as if it is the older master used for VHS transfer, but for modern DVD widescreen.  The sound is down as many generations and there are no extras.
