After 29 years of waiting, Way of the Dragon is now available to UK audiences as director Bruce Lee intended. Now re-instated are the 10 mins of incredible hi-impact fight footage previously prohibited by the BBFC, including Bruce s stunning double nunchaku battle sequence, which is totally unique to this movie.
In the only self-directed project from Bruce Lee s short but prolific career, he plays Tang Lung, defender of his fellow countrymen, when they come under vicious attack from mafia enforcers.
Possessing a gentle and sometimes self-effacing humour, Way of the Dragon was a sensation during its initial release back in 1972. Capturing the spirit of the great historical battles fought between gladiators in the Roman Colosseum, Bruce makes full use of this stunning location, when he squares off against Karate legend Chuck Norris for one of the most exciting one-on-one encounters ever committed to celluloid.
This groundbreaking DVD package is the ultimate home cinema version for one of the most loved and respected martial arts movies of all time. Packed with a stunning array of collectable extra features and showcasing a brand new restored and digitally re-mastered anamorphic transfer, Way of the Dragon is a dream come true for Bruce Lee fans everywhere!
