3.0 out of 5 stars still not as good as the import.... October 18, 2005
Format:DVD
Okay...this is an improvement over the previous box set...as the films feature a greatly improved picture and sound options..BUT..the foreign sets available though amazon.co.uk have great packaging...very cool book and documentaries NOT included in this set...heck there are NONE on this set. I also note that while the menus look identical to the foreign set (I guess you can tell I own both?)...to watch it with the original language and English subtitles...on the foreign set they are below the picture on these...ON THE PICTURE? ..why? when you have a widescreen do you need to put the subtitles on the images? They didn't on my import...
this is a pretty half a...ed effort on 20th Century Fox. and I agree the last movie in particular is a joke and insult to Mr Lee. It doesn't need inclusion.

I notice some folks take issue with "Imports" ..there is a difference between official licensed DVDs and "bootlegs" the items I am discussing are the DVDs available through Amazon.co.uk and are legit and its NOT just that there are extra DVDs for every movie but the picture is alarmingly BETTER (think BLURAY to VHS better) ...the US set is worth the 10bucks you pay for it but if you are a real fan of Mr Lee and this series of movies you can own versions which run circles around what we are offered in the USA. This is not the only series of films which find better and more restored or better quality outside of the US...and this isn't opinion but fact.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't buy imports - this is the next best thing! January 2, 2007
Format:DVD
What can I say. I bought imports before and got burnt.

Suffice it to say, this is possibly the next best thing to own. Here, you get to actually watch the movies in the original languages, with the exception of Game of Death and Game of Death II, but they were always done in English and is not a big loss.

Having the original Chinese language is great on many fronts. First off, the dubbing that was done before in English was horrendous as it always has been. Plus, some things are changed from the story line when they translate it as they try to match the lip movements to the English words.

Also, because of the translation, this sometimes causes other scenes to be thrown out. Case in point is in Way of the Dragon/Return of the Dragon. When Bruce's character is standing outside the restaurant with his stomach growling, a man comes out and tells him to go on inside. In the American version, we see Bruce go in and then come out again, apparently after having eaten. Well, an entire scene was missed in where he goes into the restaurant to order food and can't speak a word of English, but that's what the waitress speaks in and what the menu is in. The entire exchange is hilarious. It also drives home the point that Bruce's character is out of place in Rome which makes more sense with many of the scenes in the movie which seemed strange when spoken in the English language.

Now, it would have been nice to have more "extras" other than the filler stuff they have here, which is basically slide shows, trailers and interviews with people. I understand the import versions have much more, but for me, this coupled with the 2-disc Enter the Dragon DVD makes my Bruce Lee collection complete.

With the Ultimate Collection, you get a new 5.

2.0 out of 5 stars Highly Disapointing October 19, 2005
Format:DVD
Once again after shelling out money for the definitive dvd set of Bruce Lee's Films, I've been ripped off again. The best american versions released to date, are the 5 disc set originally released by Fox. They contain Chinese Connection (Fist of Fury), Fists of Fury (The Big Boss), Return of the Dragon (Way of the Dragon)and Game of Death (which I never liked and considered a rip-off from the start). This new set is a region 1 NTSC release of the region 2 PAL release by Fortune Star. The sound on all of these movies is over-enhanced, and what is it with that english translation song on Chinese Connection (Fist of Fury)not to mention that the color saturation on Chinese Connection is poor and a little on the green side. Although, the color saturation and picture quality was a little red in the original Fox release, at least they kept it classic. Way of the Dragon changed all of Bruce's original cat calls (Kiai's). It sounds like they even had to dub Bruce's cat calls to fit in with this new improved version. The sound in the scene with the double Nunchaku, was terribly over enhanced (made it sound like there was a tornado behind him)

Maybe oneday, someone will get it right and restore these films correctly with homage to the great master. (leave out game of death and game of death II UGHHHHHH, and use the original soundtrack but boost it to 5.1 dolby, like they did in the Wizard of Oz, so we know it can be done properly)

Format:DVD
This 5-disc set, Although it's kinda expensive, Is a very worthy release from 20th Century Fox. For the first time ever, We get to view all of Bruce Lee's classics in their original language! From The Big Boss [Known in america as Fists Of Fury] to Game Of Death, This is the ideal box set for any Bruce Lee fan, The release of this rendered the master collection utterly worthless. Another plus of these movies are that these are not the original american prints [Thank God!], These are the original Hong Kong prints. Bruce Lee is a pure delight to watch in all of these movies. His ferocious fury is undeniably exciting on the screen [Especially in Way Of The Dragon aka Return Of The Dragon] and it's no wonder why Lee is still considered the greatest martial artist of all time. But, Like many DVD releases, Even this seemingly perfect box set has its flaws. The sufficient lack of special features is a surefire dissapointment [Especially when you take into consideration its expensive $40-$50 price tag] and the biggest flaw of them all is that for some surely retarded reason, The embarrassing and blasphemous Game Of Death 2 is included here! Game Of Death 2 is the sure reject of this set, As it is nothing more than a lost cause of a martial arts film that relies heavily on stock footage of Bruce Lee [Taken from Enter The Dragon, A film i would've loved to've seen on this set, But it can't be put on here because Warner Brothers owns the rights to that movie] to pretty much be another pointless cash-in on Bruce Lee's legacy that would make Bruce Lee roll over in his grave! But, This is a mostly satisfying box set which does feature Bruce Lee at his peak and i surely reccomend it to Bruce Lee fans or Martial fans in general. Read more ›
