'Jing wu men' aka 'Fist of Fury' is a classic action film carried by the late Bruce Lee. I've always admired his work and in my opinion his energetic presence alone makes his films worth the watch. Having said this, 'Jing wu men' does have its share of flaws e.g. the sound effect is very poor (good background score) and it's very anti-Japanese. However, one must take into consideration that this is a film made more than 35 years ago. The choreography of the action scenes is superb as Lee leads them with a lethal grace. The acting is competent, though most of the villains appear as caricatures). Lee shines and he excels in the emotional scenes, particularly the graveyard scene and the sequences with his beautiful co-star Nora Miao. The plot is well handled, making the film an entertaining experience that ends on a powerful note.
