Simply the greatest Martial Arts movie of all
on 9 March 2000
Bruce Lee unfortunately was not able to see the final cinematic release of Enter The Dragon. He was already extremely nervous about how the movie would fair at the box office. He was a perfectionist, one of the purest exponents of Chinese Martial Arts ever to be filmed. This alone is reason enough to watch his films. Every single fight scene in Enter The Dragon was methodically coreographed by Bruce, even those when he was not present in the scene. His techniques are pure and brilliant. Sure, some people criticise this movie for having a thin plotline, but then that could be said of most of the early bond movies. Enter The Dragon is brilliant 70s kitch from beginning to end. It is like Dirty Harry, Bullit and Lee mixed into one. The soundtrack is also noteable from Lalo Schiffrin. Utterly superb.
