The orginal kung-fu classic, fronted by none other than the late great Bruce Lee. The plot is a vehicle for plenty of brilliant fight scenes as Bruce infiltrates an island hosting a martial arts tournament. The body count is HIGH and the martial arts scenes are the best ever put to film. A must watch for any Van Damme, Seagal, Lundgren, Brandon Lee fans....this is what broke down the door for martial arts in Hollywood!!
In its genre, this stands out as the very best. Lee's extraordinary power and speed are captured in brilliantly choreographed fight seqences. The clever score (the only music I can think off with claves as a lead instrument), minimal dialogue and a handfull of truly iconic scenes all combine to make this the bench mark that, in over thirty five years, all others have not matched. I love Jackie Chan, but he is no Bruce Lee.
£5 is incredibly underpriced for one of, if not the greatest martial arts film of all time.
This is the first bruce lee film i have bought, and after this im definetly buying more.
Arguably the greatest martial arts film ever made. Bruce at his explosive best, although Fist of Fury comes close. Great costumes, great characters, great action, great sets, and a little dark humour. Brilliant!
I've been watching this film since ITV first showed the uncut version in the early 1980's and I practically know it off by heart! Yes OK, it's dated in terms of the clothes etc, but nothing can alter the awesome fight scenes and sheer skills involved. Bruce Lee truly was the Master of Martial Arts and the unedited cave fight & Nunchuka scene is absolutely breathtaking. A definate recommended watch!
