Bruce Lee consolidated his position as the cinema's greatest martial artist in this kung fu classic. 

Fist of Fury is, without a doubt, Bruce Lee’s most potent and powerful cinematic accomplishment, surpassing even Enter the Dragon for the distinction of his best film." - Brad Curran, Kung-Fu Kingdom

"No one, yes literally no one, has ever given such a genuinely pissed off performance as Lee gives in this film." - Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!

"More political and serious than its predecessor, Fist of Fury serves as an unabashed showcase for Lee's awe-inspiring martial arts skills and, along with the nearly perfect Enter the Dragon, also provides a nice introduction to his work." - Mondo-Digital.com

"Bruce Lee at his fiercest." - CinePassion

Bruce Lee is at his most awe-inspiringly ferocious in this blistering follow-up to his star-making turn in The Big Boss, which turned out to be an even greater success than its predecessor. Set in 1910s Shanghai, Fist of Fury casts Lee as a martial arts student who, after his revered master is murdered by a rival dojo of Japanese imperialists, sets out to defend the honor of both his school and of the Chinese people, with his fatal punch his preferred weapon of choice. Elevating Lee to a hero of near folkloric proportions, this historical revenge fantasy blends its stunning action set pieces with a strong anti-colonialist statement and a potent dose of the fierce cultural pride which the actor embodied.
