Enter the Dragon (DVD) (Rpkg)
The last film completed by Bruce Lee before his untimely death, Enter the Dragon was his entrée into Hollywood. The American-Hong Kong coproduction, shot in Asia by American director Robert Clouse, stars Lee as a British agent sent to infiltrate the criminal empire of bloodthirsty Asian crime lord Han (Shih Kien) through his annual international martial arts tournament. Lee spends his days taking on tournament combatants and nights breaking into the heavily guarded underground fortress, kicking the living tar out of anyone who stands in his way. The mix of kung fu fighting (choreographed by Lee himself) and James Bond intrigue (the plot has more than a passing resemblance to Dr. No) is pulpy by any standard, but the generous budget and talented cast of world-class martial artists puts this film in a category well above Lee's primitive Hong Kong productions. Unfortunately he's off the screen for large chunks of time as American maverick competitors (and champion martial artists) John Saxon and Jim Kelly take center stage, but once the fighting starts Lee takes over. The tournament setting provides an ample display of martial arts mastery of many styles and climaxes with a huge free-for-all, but the highlight is Lee's brutal one-on-one with the claw-fisted Han in the dynamic hall-of-mirrors battle. Lee narrows his eyes and tenses into a wiry force of sinew, speed, and ruthless determination. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

The picture is natural solid & sharp,an improvement of the 2007 release. The DTS 5.1 HD master audio is also a great improvement. It comes all in a special box with a envelope of photo cards & a iron on patch. But for me personally it's the picture quality of one of my all time favorites that counts the most.
This double disc has several compelling documentaries that examine Lee's life and skills. A special treat is previously unseen footage of Lee in action.
Disc Two includes John Little's feature length biography Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey with a meticulous reconstruction of Lee's intended cut of The Game of Death.
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.
This was the movie that made Bruce Lee a superstar.Good production values and a strange patina of 70's nostalgia mark this film. If you haven't seen this one, then, for God's sake don't admit it.
