From Amazon.co.uk

The last film completed by Bruce Lee before his untimely death, Enter the Dragon was his entrée into Hollywood. The American-Hong Kong co-production, shot in Asia by American director Robert Clouse, stars Lee as a British agent sent to infiltrate the criminal empire of bloodthirsty Asian crime lord Han (Shih Kien) through his annual international martial arts tournament. Lee spends his days taking on tournament combatants and nights breaking into the heavily guarded underground fortress, kicking the living tar out of anyone who stands in his way.

The mix of kung fu fighting (choreographed by Lee himself) and James Bond intrigue (the plot has more than a passing resemblance to Dr. No) is pulpy by any standard, but the generous budget and talented cast of world-class martial artists puts this film in a category well above Lee's primitive Hong Kong productions. Unfortunately he's off the screen for large chunks of time as American maverick competitors (and champion martial artists) John Saxon and Jim Kelly take centre stage, but once the fighting starts Lee takes over. The tournament setting provides an ample display of martial arts mastery of many styles and climaxes with a huge free-for-all, but the highlight is Lee's brutal one-on-one with the claw-fisted Han in the dynamic hall-of-mirrors battle. Lee narrows his eyes and tenses into a wiry force of sinew, speed and ruthless determination. --Sean Axmaker

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Must see (spoiler) 3 Jan 2011
Format:Blu-ray
In the years since his bizarre and tragic death, martial arts legend and master Bruce Lee has become an icon within the Kung-fu movie genre. Having only previously played a couple of American speaking parts before, this was Lee's introduction to Western audiences, but due to his tragic death just weeks before the film's American release, it would never be known what he would have been capable of as a box-office star. However ENTER THE DRAGON (1973), certainly was the film that made his career and it made him famous because of it and although the sadness being that he would never make it big in other films, this type of film which combined Asian art with American brutality helped its popularity with audiences who soon became obsessed with the ambition to become involved with kung-fu fighting.

Lee plays the role of a character who shares his surname Lee, stars as a martial arts expert who is recruited by the British government to infiltrate an island fortress, under the cover of being invited to a martial arts tournament, to investigate a possible slavery/drug ring led by a former nemesis of his. However he isn't the only fighter taking part in the tournament as he is accompanied on the trip by American socialite Roeper (John Saxon) who is on the run from debt-collectors and African American pimp Williams (Jim Kelly) who has a run-in with the cops. Lee is made aware of the situation going on in the island through an undercover agent Mei Ling (Betty Chung) who is posing as a geisha for the villain who hosts the tournament.

By TMUK VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Was reluctant to buy this blu ray as the reviews I had seen spoke of poor quality video and sound so I was pleasantly suprised at the quality of this film on viewing.

The film quality itself is overall suprisingly very good and much improved over the DVD versions I own. I don't claim it to be up there with the latest and greatest releases on blu ray but for a 37 year old film that wasn't particularly made to a high standard its great.

The sound quality is an issue though the mix of dubbing and sync problems aren't great but doesn't render the film unwatchable. Most of the Extra's made previously available on DVD seem present and correct and the imfamous nunchak scene that was removed from the 1st UK DVD but later reinstated on a subsequent relase is there too.

All round a classic martial movie and well worth a watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter The World's Greatest 12 Oct 2001
Format:DVD
Enter The Dragon is considered by many to be the greatest martial arts movie of all time and it's almost 30 years old. It was made on a small budget which doesn't show, even in comparison to recent movies of the genre. It has exotic locations on a worldwide scale such as Kowloon, a cast of thousands and a credible actor, John Saxon who was at the time a big star but stayed second billing to Bruce Lee because when Lee was on screen nobody else got noticed anyway. There's the excellent music score by Lalo Schifrin who was the man behind the original Mission Impossible theme and of course...Action! With such varied and visually stunning styles as Tai Chi Chuan, Hapkido, Tai Kwan Do, Karate and Lee's invention Jeet Kune Do the action has never looked so unpredictable. This new DVD edition was well worth waiting for. If you've got any other version of this movie, get this anyway. For the first time in the UK it is completely uncut, with the infamous nunchaku scene reinstated, and it's even got extra scenes placed in the movie which were not even in the original cinema release. Where this special edition really shines though is in the extras. Along with the trailers and a workout documentary from 1973, it has extras on it that have been made specifically for this edition such as an interview with Lee's wife Linda Lee Cadwell who can be the only person to have known the truth about his life unlike so many other imitations such as Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story which although hugely enjoyable was inaccurate and over stylised. In the boxset you get 10 exclusive postcards, a copy of the press release brochure and lobby cards. The soundtrack has been reproduced to brilliant effect and the improved picture quality could not have been better, with the visual quality of a movie from today. Read more ›
