As in even the very best Kung Fu movies, mayhem ensues, especially once hundreds of fighting champions storm the island in an out-of-control melee that Lee walks through with complete cold discipline.

A pretty excellent action film that gives [Star] Lee the chance to play the dashing hero...

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.

[VIDEO ESSAY] From a historical perspective of cultural influence, Bruce Lee's last movie is a martial arts film of epic proportions.

The acting is wooden and the sound effects are even worse (especially in terms of voice dubbing). But the fight scenes are excellent especially in reference to Bruce Lee.

The only real disappointment about Enter the Dragon is that it is Bruce Lee's last movie.

The chop-socky film to beat them all.

If kung fu is now the standard badass language, Enter the Dragon -- featuring Lee's great slow-burn stare -- is the first grammar lesson.

It's worth catching this schlock art film to see Lee play a 007-type super-agent, who is an expert in kung-fu.

Presents a powerful, kinetic ballet by a martial arts master at the peak of his form--just try looking away from him.

Rising popularity of the Chinese martial arts as screen entertainment climaxes in fine crescendo in this violence-drenched actioner.

Nonstop action is what these films are about, and that's what you get here.

Ripping entertainment overall, with just enough meat for amateur sociologists.

...it's still great entertainment and remains a first-class action thriller in first-class style.

High karate and low kitsch ... Forget the dopey James Bond plot and train your eyes, little grasshopper, on Lee as he takes on army of henchmen, demonstrating his revolutionary kung-fu moves and a fire-breathing squint.

Worth seeing for Lee, but still unforgivably wasteful of his talents.

On an adventure level, the performances are quite good. The one by Mr. Lee, not only the picture's supermaster killer but a fine actor as well, is downright fascinating.
