Re-release of the same films on DVD May 1 2013
By C. Sawin - Published on Amazon.com
For years now owning the Two-Disc Special Edition of "Enter the Dragon" and The Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection has sufficed when it's come to owning Bruce Lee's films. Shout! Factory, in addition to their Jackie Chan Double Feature line, has two Bruce Lee Double Feature releases lined up on DVD; one DVD release for "The Big Boss" and "Fist of Fury" and another release for "The Way of the Dragon" and "Game of Death."

On the DVD for "The Big Boss/Fist of Fury," the movies are unchanged from previous releases and all of the flaws and edits that you've come to expect in both films are still there. One of the things that was brought to light during this viewing of "The Big Boss" is that the voices of two characters swap around the 26:30 mark and then swap back a moment later. While the price is relatively affordable, the DVD is also unnecessary especially if you already have the films. If you own The Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection, then it may be worth picking up these two DVDs to save shelf space and finally have the opportunity to get rid of the downright terrible "Game of Death II."

Some mini reviews practically wrote themselves after purchasing The Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection, but were polished up for these releases. Here's a look at the "The Big Boss" review:

"The 70s cheese that's present in every Bruce Lee film seems overexposed in the film that would eventually lead to him becoming a martial arts action star. 'The Big Boss' is very similar to 'Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky' in tone, but was slaughtered by the MPAA. The over the top violence is only held back by the heavy amount of cuts in the film. Despite being Lee's bloodiest film, it's extremely edited compared to what was shown in theaters in '71. The ability to jump ten feet in the air at a moment's notice reaches its peak when Cheng (Lee) jumps over a fence, then reaches into a paper bag that he's carrying and eats a potato chip. A man leaves a cartoonish outline of his body in a wooden wall after being kicked through it and Cheng shoves his bloodied fingertips into the abdomen of Hsiao Mi (Han Ying-chieh) during the film's finale. If you're going to go for outrageous gore, then it needs to be unedited. Chiao Mei (Maria Yi) is totally useless and thinks crying is the solution to everything. 'The Big Boss' is entertaining, but would be even better if the seas parted and we got our hands on that 115-minute version of the film."

And the "Fist of Fury" review:

"If 'Enter the Dragon' is considered not only Bruce Lee's most successful film, but his most well-received then 'Fist of Fury' should qualify as a very close second. Bruce Lee manages to show a little versatility when it comes to his acting this time around as he's shown dressed up as an old man and as a nerdy telephone worker each with its own quirks and characteristics that Lee does a great job of portraying. The Japanese dojo sequence at the beginning of the film is legendary. While Chen Zhen (Lee) mourns his master at first, he becomes more and more violent as the film progresses. Chen Zhen kills so many people, is massively angry, and is apparently a master of disguise. The film caps it off with Chen Zhen's fight with the seemingly unstoppable Russian, Petrov. Take a minute to soak in the ending. It's so simple and yet Lee does this extraordinary job of packing in as much emotion as he can in the final 15 seconds of the film."

Don't bother wasting your money. This is terrible English dub version. April 30 2013
By Monty Britton - Published on Amazon.com
Cannot believe Shout! Factory would do injustice to Bruce Lee and his fans. The two films on this disc only have English (5.1 or 2.0) and NO Cantonese language!! Maybe most people like watching people's mouths move and the words don't follow the mouths, but I don't! Cannot believe it does not state English dub on the cover. Most foreign films are offered in their original language (at least as one of the choices). This is worse than I remember growing up and watching Kung Fu Theater on TV. At least get the dubbing half right. You get sounds inserted when they shouldn't be there! Laughably bad!! Even the sound effects are bad. These look to be the same prints from years ago in the Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection (except the soundtracks). This is horrible, to say the least. Ten bucks gone to waste! Wonder if the blu ray imports are as bad? His Hong Kong films need to stay just that. Foreign films. Why do Americans have to ruin a good thing? I will stick with my old DVDs that are in their original languages until something better comes along.

Excellent! Aug. 14 2014

Brand new! Nice dvd case with a Bruce Lee side-kick inside. The sound/picture quality is good and clear (fist of fury has the better) looks 3D at times, dvd setup looks professional.100% original film, dubbing, and sound effects! My original review was a bit different but as with all things, the more time you spend with it, the more you grow to like or dislike it.
Very good!! April 9 2014
