Bruce Lee introduced his magnetic charisma and groundbreaking fight choreography to the world in this seminal classic of martial arts cinema. 

"I absolutely loved when Cheng gets hit for the first time.  The music hits and Bruce Lee gets this look on his face.  You can just tell… It’s On!!!" - Action Movie Fanatix

 

"The fight choreography is practically flawless and Lee makes for a ridiculously intense leading man full of as much charisma as he is barely controlled anger."

- Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!

 

"It’s the perfect introduction to his tragically short filmography and is simply worth any HK enthusiast’s time. Not to mention of course its landmark position for basically kick-starting the martial arts and kung fu film craze that put Hong Kong on the map for this sort of thing." - Asian Cinema Drifter

 

"Ingenious." - CinePassion

Enter a legend. Bruce Lee’s return to the Hong Kong film industry after a decade in America proved to be his big breakthrough, launching him to instant superstardom and setting a new standard for kung fu heroics. He commands the screen with his gravitas and explosive physicality in the role of a Chinese immigrant working at a Thai ice factory and sworn to an oath of nonviolence. When he discovers that the factory’s ruthless higher-ups are running a secret heroin ring and offing their own workers, his commitment to pacifism is put to the test. With his undeniable charisma and fluid, lightning-fast martial arts style, Lee is a revelation, streaking across the screen with a speed and power the likes of which had never been seen before.
