Audience Reviews for Fist of Fury (Jing wu men)

    Hands down the best Lo/Lee collaboration; there are technical and choreography improvements all over the place and unlike <i>Tang shan da xiong</i> (1971), this was intended to be a serious film with still some unbelievable moments to showcase Bruce Lee's extraordinary abilities. Unfortunately, it suffered from its own anti-Japanese undertones. Today, however, it is difficult to judge the original intentions. 97/100

    I have to say up front, just so you know, that I've never been a strong Bruce Lee fan. The reason why I went back to watch this was because I enjoyed the Jet Li remake, <i>FIst of Legend,</i> so much when I saw it recently. While this one is definitely good to see, so you can say you've seen it, there is no comparison, for me, with <i>Fist of Legend</I>. The latter is a better scripted story, a better directed movie, and Jet Li is the better actor. As far a martial arts style goes, I think they are both equally talented, but Li has definitely emerged over time as the more talented actor.

    This Bruce Lee classic is continuously entertaining, though cheesy at times due to its dated quality.
