I watched Legacy of Rage after I saw Brandon's final film, The Crow, and I was literally blown away. Unlike most dubbed films, Brandon's sheer presence and force of character made the film very watchable--I never had a sense that I was missing a part of his performance (although of course I was) because of the intense physical acting of his character.
For The Crow fans who are already familiar with the intensity of Brandon's performance, this is a rare treat--we have proof now that he didn't just miraculously portray The Crow's Eric Draven, but was capable of portraying the angst, confusion and rage of extreme situations in a believable and caring way very early in his too short career.
It is hard to believe that Brandon was so young when he filmed Legacy of Rage--he carries himself with a poise and confidence that belies his tender years...he is believable as a man who has suffered the unbelievable.
In Legacy of Rage, Lee portrays Brandon Ma, a hardworking Chinese youth, holding down two jobs, and saving his money to wed his beloved. Ma's best friend is Michael, whose father is part of the organized crime syndicate, who is being groomed to take his over the family business. When a Michael sets Brandon up to take the fall for a mob hit, sending him to prison for eight years. Brandon loses his love while in prison, and only later learns of Michael's betrayal. After he is released from prison, Brandon is provoked to revenge to save his beloved and the son he didn't know he had from the power maddened Michael.
The fight and shooting scenes are well balance with thoughtful character development. The final confrontation between Brandon and Michael is often compared to John Woo style Hollywood action epics, and rightly so...you will rewind it again and again to catch all the action!

Brandon Lee won the newcomer award in Hong Kong for his portrayal of a guy plagued with adversity, but a passionate will to overcome. Bruce Lee had advised his followers to "try again," but by being his son, Brandon had no alternative but to "try harder." His Hong Kong martial arts style demonstated in Legacy of Rage is without equal.

I just happened to stumble across this flick the other day at the local Media Play and speaking as a hardcore Bruce Lee fan and of Brandon's performance in The Crow...I was blown away by Brandon's only Hong Kong movie. The action was there(Brandon stayed true to the Jeet Kune Do method that his dad polished) and while I didn't feel that he was attempting to imitate or emulate his dad...his intensity, mannerisms and even his expressions tend to resemble and honor his dad at times. I strongly recommend LOR for fans of Bruce and Brandon Lee, not just because it's a rare treat(or for the Cantonese soundtrack w/t English subtitles...cool), but because it represents the continuity of the Bruce Lee legacy and gives us more of a glimpse at what may've been(carrying Bruce Lee's torch and coming from under his shadow) had he lived to carry on his father's martial arts/film legacy. A truw, underground martial arts classic by the son of the greatest of all time. Brandon Lee...Rest In Peace,man.

In a way, this is really a very good HK movie, but in many other ways it is just as lacking. I was actually blown away by how well the story is told. What I was dissapointed with were the little things like horrible dubbing and lame dialouge at times that got rather annoying. To top it all off, an almost embarassing cameo from Bolo and really no martial arts action to speak of. Overall, this is a fine film, it just all depends on what you are expecting to get out of it.

Three main reasons I purchased Legacy was for Brandon Lee, Bolo Yeung, and hopefully to see some amazing martial arts action. I guess I expected some bad dubbing and cheesiness, and oh yes, there's plenty of that here. But what really blew me away was the story. Things start out a little boring, but once the plot gets kicking it is actually quite engaging. You've got Brandon, who is your every day working guy with a girlfriend, and his best buddy Michael, who unknown to Brandon, is just a dirty drug-dealing guy. Michael sets up Brandon for the murder of a rival dealer, and Brandon gets 8 years of time. While in prison, Michael harasses Brandon's girlfriend, who has become pregnant with Brandon's son and is asked to leave the country with an older, yet kind, man who has been infatuated with her. Eight years later, Brandon is set free, and with help of a friend from prison, gets his revenge on Michael, in what is a bloody gun showdown without any martial arts combat whatsoever.

Despite the dubbing, which the excellent story actually covers up after awhile, Brandon seems to deliver a solid performance. It kind of reminded me of his capabilities in The Crow. However, I was hoping for some good kung fu action like in Rapid Fire, but there were only a couple of scenes of quick one two punches and out.

Legacy of Rage is a good HK action movie with some noteable action scenes and a good score. The movie is clearly dominated by two men. The well-known director Ronny Yu (Yu Yan Tai) who did a great job with Legacy of Rage, some of the scenes are really visually impressive, and the starring actor Brandon Lee (Li Guo Hao) with his great onscreen presence (at the age of 21). Also, Lee managed to not just be an "action robot" in this movie but to also to convey the emotions and the love story of his character (involving gorgeus Regina Kent) in a credible, gripping way.

Just a few words about the action scenes in this movie. Don't expect a martial arts movie because of the main actor's last name. The action scenes consist mainly of shooting, although there are some hand to hand combat scenes. Brandon Lee did all the fighting in the movie himself but of course his fighting skills are nowhere near his father's. Yet, the fighting in Legacy of Rage is decent. Brandon gets to beat up superstar Bolo Yeung (Enter the Dragon, Bloodsport).

Yu and Lee make Legacy of Rage one of HK's best low budget movies of the 80's. If you like such films or one of those two men, you should buy Legacy of Rage. It shouldn't be too expensive.

PS: I suggest a Cantonese version with English subtitles
