After malicious gangsters capture Bruce Lee’s girlfriend, young Wong tries to rescue her and the late master’s legendary book containing lethal techniques for killing with one’s fingers. This 1976 movie is one of several “Bruceploitation” pictures made to capitalize on the fame and early death of actor and martial arts master Bruce Lee. Le is the best of the Bruce Lee imitators, a reasonable facsimile of the original, physically, though his skills lack the balletic finesse of Lee. The approach is traditional kung fu action drama, with bad guys and good guys portrayed in blacks and whites, with little nuancing.
Fans of martial arts films will appreciate the action sequences, which are staged effectively. A scene in which a girl is tortured with a deadly snake is particularly grim. The plot is straightforward and lacks any suspense, since we always know where the film is heading. You won’t find any surprising twists or unanticipated developments, but the film is really about delivering action, which it successfully accomplishes.
Bonus materials on the 2-disc R-rated, widescreen Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack include deleted scenes, commentary track, new hi-def transfers of several other kung fu film theatrical trailers (with bonus Bruce Lee trailers), poster and lobby card gallery, bad kung fu dubs, and reversible coverwrap.
The variations of Bruce Lee’s name were steady at the time. Some “stars” simply went by “Bruce” something. Then there were the variations of his last name including “Li” “Le” and more. Each actor had his hair cut to resemble the original star and more often than not there was some small resemblance in their facial features. But still they were nowhere near the expert Lee was nor had the amount of charisma he had.
Which brings us to this film. The star here is Bruce Le as Bruce. As for a plot well that gets kind of tricky. The film jumps from one item to the next and gets so convoluted that trying to understand what is happening when gets tricky. Making matters worse is when good guys fight each other because they aren’t aware they’re both good guys.
Basic plotline then. A bad guy martial arts expert and mob boss wants the “kung fu finger book” written by Bruce Lee himself. Throughout the movie he sends thugs to various places to search for the book. Then we have another story going on where a loser has a gambling debt to pay off so he tells his girlfriend to become a hooker for the mobster he owes the money to. She refuses but the mobster tells her he’s going to make her. Why she gets to the point of being placed in jeopardy because of this so called boyfriend is one of many things that don’t make sense. Not enough story? Well the girl happens to be Bruce Le’s sister and he comes looking for her. In his search he learns about the mobster seeking the book and gets involved with that as well.
The movie is filled with some of the most drawn out passive and wasteful scenes put to film. Moments of people sitting and talking but saying nothing, especially anything that moves the story forward. Scenes jump from one group of characters to another with no introduction of who they are or what they’re involvement is but they meet and fight or confront one another. Why some people are questioned while looking for the book is never explained either. It’s as if they bad buys pulled out a phone book and stuck a finger in it and decided that’s who they’d question.
To say this is a bad movie is to insult bad movies. It doesn’t even qualify as a movie so bad it’s good. Perhaps given the MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER treatment it might be bearable. As it is I would suggest it only to die hard martial arts fans and even they will be disappointed. Or perhaps if you want to collect every movie with the various versions of Bruce Lee clones you’ll want to add this to your collection. For everyone else I’d suggest something more tolerable like finger nail extraction.
Fantastic to see the full 2.35.1 frame.
This is actually Bruce Le film and Bruce Li is only a bit player as one of the henchmen.
Looks superb,whether you like the film itself is whether you like cheezy Kung Fu films
with the glorious Bruce Le & Li
I love the guys.
