The action in the movie is also pretty good.
Mr. Pink
Bruce Lee's fight scene with Chuck Norris in the Colosseum alone is worth the ticket.

Bruce Lee never reached his prime in film making; dying before his time. The Way of the Dragon, is a loosely put together story, with fight scenes used as glue along the way. This film was out of stock for years, but this re-mastered version is worth the wait; being much clearer in both audio and video. The tour of the City of Rome Italy is beautiful. But I must admit, the face-off fight between Chuck Norris and Bruce is classic. This is the main reason to get this film. It shows how adaptable Lee's Jeet Kune Do fighting style was. Bruce used Mohammad Ali like foot work and feinting to wear down his opponent, then attacked with his lightening speed and power. This is a must have for all Martial Arts fans.

Retrun of the Dragon was the American re-cut and badly dubbed version of Bruce Lee's classic Way of the Dragon. Believe it or not this movie was Lee's highest grossing film in Hong Kong. He made this movie especially for that market. That's why it's so different than the others. But the DVD is bad. Go out and get the import disc title Way of the Dragon. The movie is a lot longer, it's uncut and in cantonese with english sub-titles and the movie is correctally matted at 2.50.1. You'll see it like you never have before!

Of all of Bruce Lee's movies this one is perhaps the most realistic and enjoyable in terms of martial arts action even more so than Enter the Dragon. The plot of a country bumbkin sent away from his home that ends up singlehandedly humiliating and dispatching pestering gangsters is again implemented, but is this time seen entirely through Bruce's eyes as Bruce wrote this screenplay. Comedy punchlines that fall flat, plot somersaults that defy logic and reasoning leaving the audience discombobulated however are forgetable, but the choreography of the fights are the apex of on screen martial-arts action. The gladiator duel set in the Colloseum with Bruce and Chuck Norris is the most climactic scene, and I found myself rewinding the scene over and over to catch Bruce Lee's footwork that seemed comparable to Muhammed Ali's. The scene where Bruce Lee wields two nunchaka at once is asskickingly breathtaking. Don't rent this movie. Buy it.

Format: DVD
After the phenomenal success of Bruce Lee's first two martial arts films ( "The Big Boss" & "Fist Of Fury" ), Bruce broke free of the past fiery relationship with director Lo Wei, and formed Concord Productions to handle the next step in his skyrocketing film career. The influx of funds from the success of Bruce Lee's two preceding movies, allowed Bruce to budget for more exotic locations (Rome, Italy), more accomplished oppenents ( hapkido expert Ing-Sik Whang, karate champion Bob Wall, and seven times US karate champion Chuck Norris) and an overall better production quality.

Bruce Lee wrote, directed and starred in "Way Of The Dragon", and the plot line does not drift too far away from his first success ("The Big Boss"), as Lee once again plays a seemingly, simply country boy (Tang Lung) who travels to Rome, Italy to work in a relatives restaurant. Upon arrival, his cousins all assume Tang Lung to be a rather meek & naive character, until gangsters visit the restaurant to try to extort money from the Chinese owners. All parties head out into the back alley, and after a couple of his relatives are floored, Bruce hands out a punishing demonstration in chinese kung fu ( "...dragon whips his tail..." ) and throttles several of his bigger Anglo opponents much to the amazed delight of Nora Miao. The demoralised gangsters limp back to their boss, detailing about their shock loss, and the stakes are raised higher as the criminals try to take Bruce out of the picture using guns and hitmen. Their repeated attempts fail, and the thugs are forced to recruit three outsiders, all lethal fighters ( Ing-Sik Whang, Bob Wall & Chuck Norris ) to kill the unstoppable Tang Lung (Lee).

Format: DVD
This movie, originally titled "Way of the Dragon" is a classic. This movie was written, directed, produced, and of course, starred by Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee, after his first two martial arts movies, gained enough financial clout to start his own production company and therefore, called the shots on this picture.
It is witty, a little campy and unlike modern versions of love interest stories - this is pure. The most outstanding element however, is Bruce. He throws in a little "fighting" philosophy without resorting to "preachiness" and is perfect as the homespun and green hero.
The fight sequences are fun and honest. The climated scene pits Bruce Lee against Chuck Norris, batting it out in the Roman Colessuem (and its staged set counter-part). This battle is also an expression of Lee's philosophy on a smaller guy battling a bigger-stronger opponent. This last battle is still the runnng favoriate among movie fight fans. An entertaining movie for most, but especially for martial arts enthusiast.

After the success of "Fist of Fury," Bruce Lee believed he could make better films than the Hong Kong directors. As a result, he called the shots on "Way of the Dragon" (1972). In his third starring feature, director-writer Lee emphasizes humor and characterization. Bruce plays a resourceful martial artist named Tang Lung who arrives in Rome to protect his relatives from mobsters. The highpoint is a climactic battle between Bruce and Chuck Norris in the Roman Colosseum - perhaps Lee's most brutal fight sequence. Though enjoyable, the remaining action scenes lack the bravura of "Enter the Dragon" and "Fist of Fury." Nevertheless, "Way of the Dragon" showcases Lee as an accomplished filmmaker whose skills might have flourished in more imaginative directions.
