Double Dragon and Other Disappointing Teen Movies of the 1990s

Ever since there have been movies, there have been disappointing movies. But nothing disappoints more than the movie-adaptation of your favorite childhood idols and characters.

Take, for example, Double Dragon:

Double Dragon was solid proof that Nintendo and Hollywood had a sinister plot against the youth of the early 90's. This 1994 **** was based on another video game franchise involving brothers. It starred Scott Wolf and Mark Dacascos as Billy and Jimmy Lee. The brothers were skilled martial artists, which was fortunate considering they lived in an urban warzone filled with street punks inexplicably out to kill them. Although the basic concept worked great as a classic Nintendo beat em’ up, it was barely enough to pad a major motion picture. But since when has a lack of substance stopped Hollywood?

One of my sister's ex-boyfriends worked at a movie theater when they were playing Double Dragon. It only ran for one night, since opening night we completely empty.
