Critic Reviews for Enter the Dragon
Enter the Dragon is the first classy Kung Fu movie specially designed for Western audiences, and that's not to be confused with first-class.
The only real disappointment about Enter the Dragon is that it is Bruce Lee's last movie.
If kung fu is now the standard badass language, Enter the Dragon -- featuring Lee's great slow-burn stare -- is the first grammar lesson.
Rising popularity of the Chinese martial arts as screen entertainment climaxes in fine crescendo in this violence-drenched actioner.
Ripping entertainment overall, with just enough meat for amateur sociologists.
Worth seeing for Lee, but still unforgivably wasteful of his talents.
Audience Reviews for Enter the Dragon
The quintessential Kung-Fu action flick that made Bruce Lee an international star. Despite being a tad dated, this is still a fantastic action movie through and through. It's well-directed, the music by Lalo Schifrin is great, and the action is fast and well-choreographed. All three of the main leads are also great (Bruce Lee, John Saxon, Jim Kelly).
In the film's opening flashback scenes, when the star, Bruce Lee, is told of his sister's murder, even a total lamebrain (like say, f'instance, me) understands that a total macho-on-steroids asskicking lollapalooza is on its way (and the soul of kung fu stands represented as essentially a poor man's revenge against injustice - thus the ghetto appeal). With an truly exotic locale, China, and a cast of kung fu asskickers one after another its a wonder this work hasn't been more imitated --- if anyone could replicate Lee's asskicking charisma. Did I say "asskicking" 3 times? No. More.
Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris. Even today the world's not ready for the epic-ness of this film.
