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

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 Exceptional 10 Feb 2003
Format:DVD
This is by far the best and greatest martial art movie ever made, it stars the best martial artist who ever lived (Bruce Lee) along with other superb martial artists including John Saxon. This leads to utterly intence fighting scenes. It is amazing but none of the stunts he pulled in the movie (such as flipping over a line of men or jumping 7 foot high in to a tree) were fake or camera tricks. The nunchuku scene performed by Lee is legendary and you will never forget it.
The plot is basically set around Lee trying to enter a drug dealers base in the form of competeing in his martial arts tornament. But also the drug dealer killed his sister so he has a personnal interst in going to assainate him.
This was Bruce Lee's best movie, but unfortunatly he died just before its release. However if you are at all interested in Lee, or any form of marial art movies, YOU MUST GET THIS FILM!!
You will never forget it
