Man, the Fist of Bruce Lee literally knocks you into submission.

This was directed by Bruce Li which can be seen from the onset. The camera work is really not good and is accompanied by less than average fighting. Who is the blonde guy who keeps appearing in Li's films? He's not very good at martial arts and or even basic fighting for that matter! His nunchuks look like $10 special from KB Toys. Can you tell I really don't like this guy? The story isn't all that clear and names are dropped while characters appear so often you can't even tell if someone from the film crew accidentally got in the shot. Then, you have scenes where guys appear out of nowhere, no conversation occurs, and fighting breaks out for no reason. Worst, some of them don't even include Bruce fighting!! What the heck was with that double/triple crossing and who the hell are these guys? Oh, you can also see where Jackie Chan got inspiration for the playground fight in Police Story 2. Jackie saw this film and said, "The Bruce Li playground fighting scenes really suck!"

Funny stuff: Bruce electrocuting a nosy thug, deadly doll, secret codes, funniest 70s dub music in the club scene, cutie gal who doesn't fall for "experts", fake retractable knife, Bruce sparring to "Pick up the Pieces"

For a good Bruce Li flick , look elsewhere. Still WAY better than Future War.
