Synopsis


Enter the Dragon
One of the most popular kung fu films ever, and perhaps the peak of the famed Bruce Lee's career, Enter the Dragon achieved success by presenting a series of superbly staged fighting sequences with a minimum of distractions. The story finds Lee as a martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for his sister's death. This evil villain operates from a fortified island manned by a team of crack martial artists, who also host a kung fu competition. Lee uses his skills to enter the contest and then tries to chop, kick, and otherwise fight his way into the dealer's headquarter. The story is, of course, merely an excuse for showdown after showdown, featuring masterly fighting by Lee in a wide variety of martial arts styles. Essential viewing for martial arts fans, the film was also embraced by a larger audience, thanks to a fast pace and higher-than-usual production values. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    What you really want to know about this Blu-ray

    If you have been reading the hype from such sites as blu-ray.com then you are probably ready to buy this Ultimate Collectors Edition just because they have heralded this version as the definitive copy of Bruce Lee's greatest triumph. Let me caution you, never trust a site that pimps for major online distributors (amazon). One thing I really enjoy about Best Buy's review system is they want you to give honest opinions to their customers. Video - A very soft focus that reveal very little definition. At the price being ask the image quality is almost laughable considering WB is asking triple the money for this Ultimate Edition. Yes colors are excellent and there is a fine layer of grain but as far as HD is concerned this is just an average flat quality image. Audio - Excellent, robust and definitely the best thing this package has to offer this 5.1 track will please the most discerning cinephiliac the overall mix is geared towards your front speakers but never the less is an excellent upgrade from past releases. Extra's - Trinkets to justify the exorbitant price cannot change the fact that the image offered fall way below HD standards. Don't think for a moment I am not a fan of Bruce because I am not giving this release my blessing I just feel obligated to tell you to hold onto your money until this release hits the $9.99 bin without the silly extra's that do not justify an average release at premium prices. I only wish WB had shown the greatest martial artist some respect and spent a million on a 4 or 8k restoration which I am sure they would have made money on the additional sales generated by such a move unfortunately they did not and what we have is a half arsed attempt at high definition. I cannot recommend this Bluray at this price hold onto your cash and wait for the bargain bin before you buy.

    Bruce Lee's Final (and Best) Film Get Upgraded

    It is one of the greatest tragedies that Bruce Lee would die before the film that would forever immortalize him was released. If you love this movie or are new to the legend of Bruce Lee, this is the version to buy. While this is definitely not a "good" film by any means-horrific acting and plot (even by Martial Arts Film standards) and a director who had never directed an Action film before (which shows)- it is an important film for both showing off Lee at the top of his form, bringing Martial Arts to the international stage, and it features Lee's best choreographed fights (besides "Way of the Dragon"'s Norris/Lee fight of course) which all make it an integral part of film history. All that said, the bonus features are pretty good but still feel lacking. You will get pretty much all you might think you need to know about Lee, but in actuality you mostly get cliff notes. It is great to see interviews with former student the-late-great James Coburn but when you see a doc titled "The Curse of the Dragon," you expect to see more about his late son Brandon. Seeing what's left of some vintage interviews is cool but, unless you live or plan on visiting Hong Kong, the feature about "rediscovering" the locations where it was filmed is pointless. There is also too much of George Takei but nothing involving former stuntman and friend Jackie Chan. Honestly, the best thing to do would be to combine what's seen here with the History Chanel's Doc "How Bruce Lee Changed the World." All in all, this worth the money.

    The Movie that made him a legend

    For anyone that is a Bruce Lee fan this is a must have for your collection. I was 6 when the man passed away. Yet I watch all his 5 movies to this day. His skills are for the eyes to see, but what would his skills be like today. Well there are so many that claim his legend will live forever and I do believe that. If you have never seen Enter the Dragon you should and listen to the words he says about life. They ring true to this very day. Watch the extras and the interview with Bruce and see just how deep this man was. He was behind his time, and we are still trying to catch up to him even 40 years after his death.

    Bruce Lees best

    I've wanted this movie since I was a kid and my friends dad put it on and the last fight scene stuck in my mind for over ten years (it was hard to find with no title, no certainty of who the actor was, etc lol). So what else could I rate it but a 5. Bottom line if you like Bruce Lee movies if you don't than don't. The picture is great as well and I've heard the original blu ray release had a lot of problems but I cannot confirm the claims

    Enter The Dragon

    A must for all Bruce Lee/martial arts fans. Lee's films set the standard for the genre 30 years ago, and still no one has come close to matching his abilities or on screen magnetism. John Little's documentary on Lee's final project was very interesting and adds insight into the genius that was Bruce Lee. Lee died young, but thank god he will live on forever in his films.
