Despite that, you see his progression as an actor, and by Enter the Dragon (undeniably his best film) they are getting better in both story and action.

Not only does his quick visit to get laid seem out-of-character, but it’s also ridiculously placed just before the final fight, straight after Lee has psyched himself up to get revenge! Highlights include the double nun chuck alley fight and of course, the final 10 min scrap with Norris who says barely two words but still convinces as someone who would at least cause Lee to break a sweat. So while Fist of Fury looks slightly cooler thanks to its more muted colour palette and the fact its shot all indoors on soundstages as opposed to the wonderful backdrop of the forests of Thailand for The Big Boss, both look utterly fantastic (despite a faint vertical stripe of lighter colour patches on the film on The Big Boss at the 11 min that lasts for about 10 seconds), the restoration work undertaken yielding stunning results on both films. com is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Pay4Later Limited, trading as Deko, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 728646).

And in a year when the likes of Second Sight have produced such prestige sets for their horror classics, I’ll be amazed if this one isn’t the single best physical media boxset release of 2023 come the end of December.

His fight choreography has been taken up a notch – the final act smackdown is packed full of so many of those iconic shots of him that adorn posters the world over - with the first use of his trademark nun chucks adding a new string to his bow and as with the previous film, while the action that doesn’t involve him feels slow and rudimentary (even if it too has gained in scope and scale), his scenes sizzle with his ferocious intensity and the best ‘fight face’ ever committed to the big screen. When he discovers that the factory is a front for a drug smuggling ring, he struggles to keep his promise though. The rest are Blu-rays, including Enter the Dragon and Game of Death II, with also excellent audio and video presentations of each, and the other four bonus discs house exhaustive featurettes of Lee's life, impact and legacy, as well as alternate versions of the aforementioned Bruceploitation movies. But the part I still find fascinating is the opportunity to compare the legendary martial artist's skills with that of the "Lee-alikes," and well, there is no comparison. For The Big Boss (1971), a change of director part way into production saw Lee and James Tien switch roles, which is often cited as the reason why Lee really doesn't actually fight until the third act; Lee and incoming director Lo Wei clashed over fight choreography and the director's preference for the race track over his film set; plus Lee picking up several major injuries along the way, requiring more extensive restructuring of the fight scenes.

Even though he doesn't do much for the first half of the story except gripe about how he can't break his "no-fighting" promise to his mother, Lee, nonetheless, steals the show as the silent, strong type while giving audiences a few glimpses of his fighting talents, which I feel is intentional so that his explosive moment during the factory riot is all the more dramatic and poignant. Not only is The Big Boss cherished as Bruce Lee's feature-length debut, for which it deservedly should be immortalized, but the martial arts film also deserves to be remembered for revitalizing interest in kung fu movies, overtaking the wuxia films that were popular in Hong Kong cinemas at the time. Scoring this set is tricky - arguably the film's aren't perfect, neither are some of the transfers due to source limitations, and of course there is a separate 4K arrival for Enter the Dragon due anytime now.

But that is precisely what the legendary filmmaker and martial artist Bruce Lee accomplished, becoming an international icon of the genre who sadly passed away much too soon but gave moviegoers four beloved classics.After a short while, the cousins and their fellow workers worry about the disappearance of some of their group. The Hong Kong Connection (1080i/60, 19 min) is a 2003 featurette with cast and crew interviews remembering Lee. There, Lee dreamed of Hollywood stardom but had to make do with teaching martial arts and dancing (he was a cha-cha champion).
