5.0 out of 5 stars Enter The World's Greatest, 12 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Enter The Dragon - Box Set [DVD] (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. If you like Bruce Lee, martial arts or action movies in general and don't buy this...You're losing out! Region 2 users usually get a bad deal with extras compared to the rest of the world, but it's nice to see that a lot of time and effort has been put into this ultimate special edition box set. Own this now!

This review does not refer to this product but another version of the film It's comments regarding it being "uncut" are not appropriate to this version. This comment should be removed.

Unfortunately it's a flaw in their system.

With regards to the BR being uncut, it is...all the cuts the BBFC insisted on are reinstated, which includes the nunchaku & "violence" of neck snapping etc.
