Bruce's Baby.By Ian Davies from South Wales , 17 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This film was Bruce Lee's baby. Based on his idea, starring and directing he wanted to make Kung Fu a more international commodity, and he did this by setting and making the film in Italy and casting an American Martial Artist, Chuck Norris, to be his main nemisis.
A fine combination of 'fish out of water' comedy mixed with cultural misunderstandings, this is more than just an action flick. This was the right direction for Bruce Lee. It is a great shame that this remains to be the only completed Bruce Lee directorial effort.

POOR FIRST HALF BUT IMPROVES WITH TIME.By a customer from BERKS , 07 Jun 2012THIS FILMS LOOKS LIKE THE FIRST HALF WAS MADE ON A BUDGET AND THEN THEY GOT A CASH INJECTION AND CHUCK NORRIS TO PULL IT OUT OF OF THE DOLDRUMS. AT THE END IT FEELS LIKE A GLIMPSE OF THE QUALITY TO COME IN ENTER THE DRAGON. THE FIRST HALF IS BORING AND LACKING ON PLOT.
Watch and enjoy this great film of the pastBy starky (11 reviews) from London , 07 Apr 2011A long while since I first saw this film. But not disappointed at all! Technology makes old films watch-able, and this one is no different. Just make sure you watch the Cantonese (original) version - there are still funny lines in the caption like 'shi*ter' for a toilet.
The fight scenes are quite remarkable; particularly when you watch Bruce Lee and how adapt he was at martial arts - the speed and the power - totally awesome stuff!
Watch and enjoy this great film of the past.
Man Chuck Norris is hairy!!!By SnrSpeedy (28 reviews) from Lightwater , 05 May 2010The story is about as basic as it gets, the cast doesn't provide any depth, but who cares... Check out Bruce Lee on those nunchucks and then later one of the best fight scenes in movie history - Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris - you'll never see that much ginger hair on a movie legend again!
one of his bestBy Hairdressers (44 reviews) from Preston , 02 Apr 2009this film apart from the dubing is just behind enter the dragon as bruce lee's best movie
Way of the DragonBy a customer from London , 07 Jan 2009The fight scenes are amazing. You could never say Bruce Lee can not fight. He just could not direct very well.
The acting is quite wooden. The plot is a little thin, but it is a Kung Fu film.
Maybe if he would of lived he would of been a better director. Shame.
Some great fight scenes with Chuck at the end. Really good.
