Bruce Lee ACTS!!
This is the one film of Bruce’s where I have actually seen him act (Outside of fighting scenes) with any credibility at all.
This film clearly demonstrates the anti-japanese feeling that Hong-Kong and mainland Chinese still posess. This is partly based upon WWII and partly on the thousand years or so of history before then, when China tried to invade Japan, Japan invaded China ect etc.
In fact, the way the Japanese are portrayed in this film is a very stereotypical Chinese one, long, thin pencil moustaches, usually large round glasses, oiled hair and well, evil.
This film goes over the top with this kind of view, and it’s a pity as it tends to lessen the impact they were trying to make with the now infamous sign.
The end scene was excellent. It’s truly disturbing how close this was to what happened to Brandon.
Shots to the head: Bruce acts – Better storyline than most of the genre – martial arts scenes ok from Bruce
Shots to the foot: Anti-Japanese characterisations go too far – martial art choreography of Bruce’s opponents bad – “Kick” scene patently ridiculous.
underrated here but i think i know why…
…most of you have seen the dubbed, cutted version. this review is for the uncut version.
bruce lee makes his most memorable performance in this excellent martial art film. the main character is not the perfect kind forgiving guy you always see in these types of movies. he cannot forgive all he can think of is revenge. he’s even prepared to kick down some innocent people on the side if need be to achieve his goal.
martial art movies often suffer from the same problems as porn movies do. the lack of a decent plot.
in this one bad guys are really bad guys, the good guy is like ‘the punisher’, shows anger in every turn but is unable to show his emotions towards his girlfriend. here even the ending is an unconventional one.
a very good film, compared to the remake with jet li bruce lee’s movie loses in great fighting scenes, but wins in attitude and depth. jet li wasn’t very believable as chen zhen, but you can see the fire burning in bruce’s eyes in every single screen.
