Fist Of Fury [DVD]
Top Customer Reviews
Filming was completed around Pak Chang in Thailand, and by all reports it wasn't the most pleasant of places, and the cast and crew survived on terrible meals and poor accomodation. The plot line is simple enough....a young Bruce Lee plays Cheng Chao-an, who has come to the big city to work with his cousins in the local ice factory. His father's departing words of wisdom to Bruce are to remember his promise not to get into any fights, and as a reminder Bruce wears a jade pendant around his neck. However, trouble seems to follow Cheng around and before long he is drawn into violence, as the truth is uncovered that the ice factory is merely a front for a heroin smuggling operation.Read more ›
I hope that the owners of the film get smart and restore it. I'll be willing to buy it again if it was cleaned up.
'Fist of Fury', set in colonial Shanghai times, is the story of a Japanese martial arts school trying to shut down a Chinese one, to which Lee belongs, after killing their master, and is the basis for a lot of very good fight scenes and just a touch of humor as Lee goes fugitive and then evading the law and donning a variety of disguises, single handedly takes them down one by one (and sometimes all together at the same time). This synopsis however doesn't do justice to the atmosphere of the story, the resonant feeling of 1970s "old Shanghai", rich in violence and Japanese/Chinese historic background. I can see now why Bruce Lee is still revered as the icon of bad@ss 70s cool - but his personality carried very well into scenes beyond the fight, unlike say Jet Li.
Fist of Fury is in Cantonese and English (dubbed). The dubbing however is very well done. They did a good job with that.

Excellent colors and audio. It was the only Bruce Lee Movie I had not seen. It was spectacular of the Greatest Martial Arts Expert of All Time.Published 4 months ago by Ramon A. Cubas
Only good at the end of the movie. They use someone else's voice for Bruce.
He gets drunk in this and BL wouldn't do that...projects a bad image.
This is a review of the film, and not necessarily the particular packaging. Bruce Lee's second outing, Fists of Fury, (sometimes later re-titled incorrectly), is by far his best... Read morePublished 15 months ago by shilohlee
The cover wasn't the same. No boggy though a few parts of the tape showed age. Though that's interesting since I got older tapes used for years longer than this in better... Read morePublished 15 months ago by S. Warren
