Gareth (The Raid, Gangs of London) Evans and Sope (Gangs of London) Dirisu join Flixwatcher to review Gareth’s choice Enter the Dragon.
Enter the Dragon is the 1973 Bruce Lee martial film directed by Robert Clouse. Famous for many things but mainly for being the last film Lee completed before his untimely death at the age of 32. Even if you’ve never seen Enter the Dragon you seen the poster and the iconic image of Lee shirtless with the bloody claw marks across his body. You’ll probably also know the final battle in the room mirrors too, most recently John Wick 2 played homage to the scene. In Enter of the Dragon Lee plays erm Lee, who is hired James Bond style to attend a high profile martial arts competition being held on the private island belonging to suspected crime lord Han. He is also given the opportunity for revenge when he finds out Han’s bodyguard was responsible for the death of his sister. Sadly Enter the Dragon also suffers from very outdated James Bond 70s writing and inappropriate references. That said, Lee is the star and his physical presence and skills just about make up for the weaknesses in plot/characters. I’m 2004 it was deemed culturally significant and rightfully so. Scores
[supsystic-tables id=166] Adored by martial arts fans Enter the Dragon scores highly across recommendability and extremely highly from Kobi and guests to score a very respectable 4.25 overall.
