Martial arts classic starring BRUCE LEE as Cheng Chao-An , an immigrant worker who takes a job with his cousins in an ice factory and discovers all manner of suspicious goings-on.
Cheng might have promised his mother not to fight again, but when he begins to investigate a series of disappearances - the latest of which has seen his own cousin go missing - he can't help but display his formidable martial arts skills.
Taking on one opponent after another, Cheng will not stop until he has fought his way to the truth and the inevitable confrontation with the man known only as 'The Big Boss'.

However, If your looking for the original 'The Big Boss' without any of the rubbish editing then this is not the dvd for you. Why did they change the credit theme?? Now its as if Bruce's character is feeling sorrow for what he did rather than triumph!
The only place I have found the original 'The Big Boss' is the 30th anniversary box set, which I definitely recommend!
The editing of this film is the only reason I have not give it 5 stars.
Really impressed by the blu-ray version, the picture is clear and for the most part crisp and detailed.
I like that there is lots of audio tracks to choose from, I personally like the Cantonese mono track as I grew up with that version.
Nothing really new with the bonus features, however the original trailers are hilarious with literal translated text and spelling mistakes.
Looking forward to watching the other blu-rays.
**The Original Mandarin Mono is missing, the Cantonese mono track is duplicated!. The menu gives you an option but it doesn't play. Looks like the disc has been authored incorrectly. Shout Factory had the same issue with their Legacy Collection set.
however, this is "edge of your seat" stuff once bruce lee becomes involved in the proceedings. promising his mother that he will cease to get into fights, lee resists the temptation for quite some time into the film until push comes to shove and then he's punching and kicking along with the best of them. the film suddenly increases a notch or two from then on as lee takes on the dope smugglers who hide their naracotics within the ice blocks at the local ice factory.
this is still not completely uncut as the rather infamous "saw" footage is in the hands of a private film collector and who refuses to allow his print of the film to be released. sounds like a bit of a spoil sport.
however, this dvd release has been restored by approximately 1 and a half minutes or more. that might not sound like very much but several previously unseen clips have now re-surfaced and i for one, am relieved at this.
the special features are quite plentful, the interviews are probably the best features as they both insightful and informative.
