Enter the Dragon: Special Edition

Movie Summary

Director:
Robert Clouse
Released:

Rating:
R
Enter the Dragon: Special Edition is the 1973 martial arts classic which famously became martial arts megastar Bruce Lee's final curtain call. The film begins at a Shaolin temple where monk Lee is a kung-fu teacher. His master comes to him to ask him to embark on a secret mission to stop a renegade member of their school--the evil Han. It seems that Han (Kien Shih) has forgotten the good teachings of the school and is now sort of like a kung-fu version of Dr. No or Blowfeld. In so many ways, this film is like a morphing of these James Bond films with a traditional martial arts film. In this case, Lee is a spy sent to infiltrate Han's tournament--where the greatest martial artists and Roper (John Saxon) are invited to his island fortress to compete. Once on the island, everything seems relatively normal at first. Later, you learn that Han has really bizarre detachable hands--ranging from claws to iron fists to knives. In addition, he is ruthless in his dealings with his underlings---actually having several killed in front of his guests who are there for the tournament!moreless
