Critic Reviews for Fist of Fury (Jing wu men)
He [Lee] is decidedly an eye-catching figure as he takes on all comers, singly or in whimpering groups, in stylized, Karate-like bouts with swift, balletic moves, baleful stares, deadly flying fists and legs and, of course, all the necessary eerie shouts.
Semi-speed through the "chatty" stuff if you absolutely must, but be sure not to miss any of the mayhem.
Not quite up to par with Lee's parting opus . . . but a fitting showcase for Lee's exceptional prowess
Audience Reviews for Fist of Fury (Jing wu men)
the choreography for the first hour of the film was pretty weak, but it improved considerably for the end of the film and the story was a cut above most kung fu movies. although more than 30 years earlier this film could be watched as a sequel to jet li's fearless. a true classic and one of bruce lee's best films.
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, FIst of Legend, 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 Fist of Legend. 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.
Bruce Lee beats the crap out of evil japanese guys. Fun times.
