Bruce Lee explodes onto the screen in the blockbuster film that rocketed him to international superstardom, Enter the Dragon! The Hollywood-Hong Kong coproduction, shot in Asia by American director Robert Clouse, stars Lee as a martial arts student recruited by British intelligence to infiltrate the secret island fortress of bloodthirsty crime lord Han (Shih Kien), through his annual international martial arts tournament. Looking to gather enough evidence to convict Han for the murder of his sister, Lee spends his days taking on tournament combatants and his nights breaking into Han’s heavily guarded underground lair, taking down anyone who stands in his way. With the help of two fellow martial arts champions – Roper (John Saxon) and Williams (Jim Kelly, star of Black Belt Jones) – Lee heads towards a spectacularly brutal one-on-one showdown with the claw-fisted Han in a hallucinatory hall-of-mirrors as hundreds of Han’s prisoners escape from captivity just in time for a huge free-for-all battle that threatens to blow Han’s secret fortress to kingdom come! Promoted as the first Hollywood studio martial arts film, Enter the Dragon offers up an astonishing array of fight sequences (choreographed by Lee himself) and pulpy James Bond-esque thrills, as well as high production values and a talented cast of world-class martial artists (including uncredited appearances by future superstars Jackie Chan and Chuck Norris), but the main attraction is, of course, the force-of-nature that IS Bruce Lee, whose dazzling charisma and unmatched fighting prowess forever set the template for all martial artists that followed. (Dir. by Robert Clouse, 1973, Hong Kong/USA, in English/Cantonese with English subtitles, 102 mins., Rated R)
