Bruce Lee plays a man called Tang Lung is sent over to Italy to help protect a family resturant from the Mafia who are intent on buying the place. However, when they send for three top, martial arts experts, Tang Lung engages in three battles of life and death.
I have to say that out of all five Bruce Lee films, this one has probably the best set of fight scenes which is down to the great choreography all done by Lee himself. The bit at the end where he fights Chuck Norris has to be the best part of the whole film and is probably the best fight sequence in the history of films. And thankfully we even get to see the legendary double nunchaku duel which was taken off the vhs version.
Overall this is an all time great martial arts film and so long as you don't mind the subtitles then you are guarenteed to love this film. Even the music is good and very catchy. Definately recommended even if you are not a Bruce Lee or martial arts fan.
This is possibly the best movie Bruce ever appeared in. It has a much-more-consistent pace, and Bruce not only shows his lighter side but gets to show what he is really made of, particularly in the climactic classic fight against Chuck Norris (look at the speed of those kicks!). Of course, the good news doesn't end there - this DVD version is completely uncut, so the previously forbidden footage including some nastier blows from Bruce, and of course his double-nunchaku scene, have given this film a new lease of life. The audio commentary option from Hong Kong expert Bey Logan is insightful and informative.
Definitely recommended even if you're not a Bruce Lee fan.
Also stars Robert Wall (Enter The Dragon), Whang-In Sik (Young Master, Dragon Lord) and Nora Miao (The Big Boss, Fist Of Fury).
This is the only self-directed project he ever did and it shows, in my mind this is better than ‘Enter the Dragon’. Now re-instated are the 10-minutes 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, you just want to keep re-watching the scene again and again. So the movie is now available to the UK audience just as director Bruce Lee intended originally.
The special features for this title include, digitally restored movie, 16:9 Anamorphic version enhanced for widescreen, audio commentary with Bey Logan and Jon Benn, AC3 5.1 digital audio, original trailer, photo gallery, rare on location photo gallery, reflections on ‘The Little Dragon’ promo and making of ‘Way of the Dragon’ text files. So all-in-all this is one great DVD with stunning extra’s and its all on one disc, a dream for Bruce Lee fans everywhere.
Hope my review helped someone.
