Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Year of the Dragon
Director: Michael Cimino
Cast: Mickey Rourke, John Lone, Ariane, Leonard Termo, Ray Barry

A fierce and captivating (but pompous) crime story about a relentless cop who starts his personal war against the mafia in New York Chinatown. Mickey Rourke is good, although he's a bit too young for the role. Some of the supporting performances, on the other hand, are pretty amateurish, to say the least.
