Summary: Bruce Lee not at his best
Common rumor: it's the greatest Chinese classic ever made

Reality: it's not


It's hard to go into watching the movie without the mindsetting of it being the biggest classic from the most famous kung fu star. But if you think this way, you might be disappointed in the movie.

Now, the nice thing about Bruce Lee is that you can smell the fury in his presence, and you can feel the rage in his eyes. However, the movie is pretty slowly paced, and you shouldn't expect choreography like the venoms or Liu Chia Liang.

Probably the best of '72, but not the best of all time.
