The film opens with Cheng Chao-an (Bruce Lee) arriving wherever it is this story takes place to live and work alongside some of his cousins. His uncle as well as the locket he wears around his neck are constant reminders of the pledge he made to his mother that he would never fight anyone again. I have to tell you, it's pretty hard not to fight in this environment. Before he even gets to his new home, he has to watch a gang of thugs intimidate a poor young lady and kick a little kid around. He holds himself back, but his cousin does not; he takes on all comers and walks away smiling. Cheng's new life is turbulent from the start; the foreman at the ice shipping factory where all the men work is a brute of a man, some guy gives him a knuckle sandwich for no good reason on his first day, and the business itself turns out to be beyond crooked, but the real problem is even more insidious. Cheng's friends and relatives slowly begin disappearing, usually after having a talk with the manager or the nebulous Big Boss. When the men revolt and start an all-out fight at the plant, Cheng hangs back- until, that is, someone cuts him.Read more ›
Young migrant worker Cheng arrives in Thailand to start a job at an ice factory with other Chinese. It seems like everyday there's a punch-up between the Chinese workers and the Thai foremen, and when two men discover drugs in the ice, they are killed. It falls on Cheng to investigate his "brother"s disappearance but he is quickly overwhelmed by the hospitality of his employers and loses focus. Realising his mistake, Cheng decides to take revenge and confront... The Big Boss.
This is Bruce Lee's first and most bloody kung-fu film. The way in which characters are killed off is very violent and even macabre, with the ice factory playing a big part. What the film is most memorable for is the device of having it's star do very little for half the film. Cheng had made a promise to his mother never to get into trouble, meaning he simply stands by and takes his knocks without retaliation. Its a great idea and teases the audience until he finally snaps into action, unleashing his powerful kicks and punches.
What's great about the film is that it has a pulpy, trashy quality with its silly "erotic" moments and hokey visuals. In one sequence, a man is knocked through a wall and his outline remains. Another occasion sees the title character throw his birdcage up onto a branch while he fights Cheng. It's so daft that it's actually quite funny and adds to the charm.
Another reason the film works is because it improves throughout.Read more ›

Undoubtedly Bruce Lee's best film in terms of story, pacing and fight sequences. It is heavily censored, and the dubbing is comical, but even then it is still a good film. Read morePublished on 18 Jun. 2014 by Samuel Barber
This is a Bruce Lee movie. The script is visibly dubbed, and the storyline is pretty silly. The action scenes make up for the weak plot, which was intended to be a comedy, in it's... Read morePublished on 24 Dec. 2012 by Mr. E. Bray
