Well now. You dare to come here, dare to oppose us. You forget the girl. You're gonna get hurt, ah, you got that?
Guess so. But still, I have to check with my friend, see what he thinks.
Hm, and where's this friend?

I wonder if Bruce Lee's widow and kids ever got any cash from the various people in Hong Kong who made movies that had "Bruce Lee" in the title (like this one) or characters that were supposed to be Bruce Lee. Probably not. Anyway, despite the title, there's no one named "Bruce Lee" in the movie, but we've got a look-alike actor. If you ever had a TV channel in your city that used to broadcast kung fu cinema, you can probably guess for the most part what this is like. The fights are pretty unmemorable, just about every scene takes place out in the countryside, and the story is drawn-out and flat. There are a few inspired bits of nuttiness, like how the setting seems to be a cross between the 19th and 20th century, and that encounter with gorillas a few other IMDb posters have already commented on. But aside from that, the movie's another good example of why the kung-fu craze died in the U.S. not long after its introduction, and didn't get revamped until the slicker and more energetic fight sequences that started appearing in Hong Kong movies of the '80s.
