Product Description

Product Description

A special, uncut edition of kung fu legend Bruce Lee's last completed film (he died before completing 'Game of Death') which finds him at his fighting best - some of his moves were so fast that the cameraman was unable to capture them on regular speed film. Lee plays a secret agent who is sent to infiltrate a martial arts tournament presided over by a one-handed super-villain. His mission: to destroy the villain's opium-smuggling racket. The film is introduced by Linda Lee Cadwell and also included is the 1973 behind-the-scenes documentary 'Location: Hong Kong With Enter the Dragon', the documentary 'Bruce Lee: In His Own Words' and a theatrical trailer.

From Amazon.co.uk

The last film completed by Bruce Lee before his untimely death, Enter the Dragon was his entrée into Hollywood. The American-Hong Kong co-production, shot in Asia by American director Robert Clouse, stars Lee as a British agent sent to infiltrate the criminal empire of bloodthirsty Asian crime lord Han (Shih Kien) through his annual international martial arts tournament. Lee spends his days taking on tournament combatants and nights breaking into the heavily guarded underground fortress, kicking the living tar out of anyone who stands in his way.

The mix of kung fu fighting (choreographed by Lee himself) and James Bond intrigue (the plot has more than a passing resemblance to Dr. No) is pulpy by any standard, but the generous budget and talented cast of world-class martial artists puts this film in a category well above Lee's primitive Hong Kong productions. Unfortunately he's off the screen for large chunks of time as American maverick competitors (and champion martial artists) John Saxon and Jim Kelly take centre stage, but once the fighting starts Lee takes over. The tournament setting provides an ample display of martial arts mastery of many styles and climaxes with a huge free-for-all, but the highlight is Lee's brutal one-on-one with the claw-fisted Han in the dynamic hall-of-mirrors battle. Lee narrows his eyes and tenses into a wiry force of sinew, speed and ruthless determination. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Was reluctant to buy this blu ray as the reviews I had seen spoke of poor quality video and sound so I was pleasantly suprised at the quality of this film on viewing.

The film quality itself is overall suprisingly very good and much improved over the DVD versions I own. I don't claim it to be up there with the latest and greatest releases on blu ray but for a 37 year old film that wasn't particularly made to a high standard its great.

The sound quality is an issue though the mix of dubbing and sync problems aren't great but doesn't render the film unwatchable. Most of the Extra's made previously available on DVD seem present and correct and the imfamous nunchak scene that was removed from the 1st UK DVD but later reinstated on a subsequent relase is there too.

All round a classic martial movie and well worth a watch

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.Read more ›

The Film
If you've never seen this movie, and like Martial art films then this one is for you.
Bruce Lee plays a Shaolin monk who is recruited by a government agency to go after a traitorous member of his temple. Han, is the head of a crime syndicate that distributes drugs and prostitute and the government needs proof of his criminal activities and that's where Lee comes in. Han lives on a remote fortress island and never comes to the mainland but once every three years he holds a martial arts tournament. Lee is asked to enter this tournament to gather proof of the criminal activities and supply this information to the government so they can bring an end to the drug cartel. He goes to the Island and enters the tornament and has to compete against martial artists one of which killed his sister years past which he recently discovered after speaking to an old man.

While on reconnaissance, Lee is being captured after an epic fight and the film ends with a fight to the death in a hall of mirrors.

I have to say this film is excellent and while the acting is questionable now, for me the nostalgia of this film and Bruce Lee makes it worth watching over and over, i love it!

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.
