What a great film. Even 40 years after his death, no other martial arts actor comes close to Lee s charisma, speed and sheer skill at his art form. The film still holds up as an action piece even though at the time it was a lower budget film and some of the cheesy Hong Kong rock cave sets show the limitations the filmmakers were faced with. The fight sequences have a stark, harsh yet balletic quality to them and all of them staged by Lee himself having honed his ability by his previous film experiences.
The film looks as good as it possible can, despite some flaws in the original photography which can be easily overlooked given the limited resources the US crew had to deal with at the spartan Hong Kong studio.
The extras are good, most of them re-hashed from previous editions as well as the lack luster audio commentary by the producer and (with forgettable minium input) the screenwriter. Someone should have interviewed these men and hired a more experienced, entertaining and engaging narrator to provide the audio information on this important film.
Not a fan of repo stills, patches and other collector stuff provided in these deluxe box sets, but I am sure some people out there love it.
