Critic Reviews for Circle of Iron
Five years after his untimely death, Lee's vision project was finally made. Whether or not it's truly his vision, the world will never know. One thing is for sure though - this is one confusing, self indulgent and often tedious film.
By downplaying the physical and emphasizing the cerebral (or in some cases, the spiritual) Lee was looking to take the genre to another level. For that alone (Circle of Iron) is very important.
Audience Reviews for Circle of Iron
One of the most bizarre, silly and amazing kung-fu movies. Much like with Enter The Dragon, this is another influence of Mortal Kombat. To say that Bruce Lee would have been better in David Carradine's role(s) is a completely crazy. Carradine is less about the actual skill and more about creating a character and is certainly a better actor. Some of the actions in this movie are downright disturbing, the character of Cord is always laughing and running around like a complete madman. However, this is a must see movie that should be viewed in the context of when it came out.
