Pleasantly surprised!!!
11 June 2006 | by roberts4412See all my reviews

Picked this up for $3.99 on a double-feature DVD including "Drunken Tai Chi. I knew this was a Bruce-ploitation film and I wanted to see the action scenes. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of time and effort put into the movie. The plot was interesting enough but not unusual for this type of film. It is "loosely" based around Bruce Lee's death. Elements of sex, courage, competition and love are included. The film has several interesting fight scenes and I enjoyed the ones between Bruce Li and his trainer the most. Also, the film was shot in several locations including New York and Chicago. Sound and picture quality for this film were good. I also liked the voice actors used in translating this film to English from its native Asian language. Definitely worth viewing!!
