Bruce Li stars as a martial artist who along with his teacher to Malaysia to sort out a martial artist who has failed to keep his word in turning over a new leaf and live a peaceful life. Also Bruce Li and his master are also looking for the Asian girl who was kidnapped by said bad guy martial artist who apparently wants to get married and won't take no for an answer. In fact the bad guy beats up her cousin, her parents and even sics kung fu fighting apes to thwart her would be heroes. Thankfully Bruce Li's kung fu is strong and that his master is even better. In a way Bruce Lee:The Invincible (Awkward title) is one of those martial arts movies that is often considered Bruceploitation but it's really not this movie's fault. The plot has nothing to do with Bruce Lee and it works as a stand alone flick. The fight sequences are also well staged and happen frequent enough to make this entertaining on the level its intended. Also of note is the fantasy and ambition The Invincible buys into, mainly how Bruce Li fights off apes (Men in gorilla suits) and it buys into a mythology that makes this as appealing as old school martial arts movies get. Also the film is a great guilty pleasure as it tries very hard to provide the martial arts action and although I'd usually take points off for quality, the truth is, is that The Invincible is as well made as these things get and is fairly enjoyable in a campy and mindless way. Also given that you can buy this for a buck, this remains one of the best DVDs to buy for one dollar. Not a perfect movie by any means, but certainly a very entertaining one.
