The most famous kung fu film, but not the best kung fu film, by far. Hell, it's not even the best Bruce Lee film. It's honestly not even that good to begin with, lost in its exposition and plot squall for half its length. This chokes the momentum, replacing it with too many characters, and too much cheekiness, without the action. Once it gets to furious fist-and-foot whams, it delivers. Finally.
The 70's introduced to the world a precious racial accident who dared to exploit and globalize a nation’s cultural substance for self-fame under the fraudulent name of egalitarian peace, rendering martial arts today as nothing more than a godless, homoerotic bro-fest. O “little dragon,” your masturbatory excuses for movies are fucking worthless and pitiful yang bloodline has been squelched. How do the maggots taste?
One of the all time great action films was the first one to be produced by a major american studio but unfortunately marked Bruce Lee's last completed picture .Amazing set pieces that certainly played to Lee's strengths. Compromised somewhat by the studio's need for 'american' stars in playing up John Saxon and Jim Kelly as equal heroes. Lee's fight with his sisters killer and the final mirror room battle amazing.
