Was billed "Return of the Dragon" during its western release in order to cash in on the success of "Enter the Dragon" as its "sequel". See more »
In an early fight scene at the restaurant, one of the protection racket heavies shapes up to Lee's character. He's seen apathetically in a boxing stance of sorts. When Lee performs a roundhouse kick, the scene (from behind the 'thug') clearly shows him with his arms behind his back and hands near/on his hips so that the kick is delivered unchallenged. He then clearly waves his arms forward from that position to up in the air, which creates a more dramatic effect as to the power of the kick, i.e. knocking him that far off balance. See more »
[after being stabbed by Uncle Wang]
Uncle Wang, why did you...?
Don't blame me for all of this. The blame is on Ah-Lung. He stirred up this trouble, the fool!
What does this... what does this mean?
What does this mean? You must know. I've worked hard all of my life. And I've got nothing at all to show for it! My own wife and children are waiting for me in Hong Kong. If the restaurant cooperates, they'll pay me well for all of this. After that I can go back to Hong Kong a rich man. So you see, I ...

I will definitely say I really love this film. No matter how many countless times I've seen it ever since I was a kid watching it on the Big Apple movie (old skool!!). This movie introduced me to kung fu and the legend Bruce Lee. His character is very interesting in this one, because he's a stranger in another land (Rome). The people he's supposed to help don't even trust him (hilarious scenes of awkwardness between Bruce and Miss Chen). Ha Goon plays a great comic relief (CHINESE BOXING!). Although the movie takes a dark turn, there are many moments of laughs. I will never forget that you can't order "chinese spare ribs". For the action, Bruce dominates as he takes on a whole gang of thugs using everything from fists and kicks to darts, a pole, and of course his awesome nunchuk scene (MOMMA MIA!!). I love the sound effects when Bruce hits his opponents and the WOOSH sound is great!! His training scenes show that Bruce Lee had 0% body fat and is good motivation for working out. The finale between he and Chuck is a classic kung fu moment. Great shots before the fight including the cat too!!
This is a great film. Another example of a great martial artist.
