An odd, but truly remarkable epic of the martial arts genre.
On a lower end of the movie spectrum, CIRCLE OF IRON has astounding production values that never seemed quite possible. This is based on the inspiration of Bruce Lee, and while it is brought up with martial arts imagery, it is actually a long, adventurous, everlasting, passionate, yet odd journey about a fighter who searches for his own destiny. Odd, you ask? What's odd are the encounters of unusual people, places, things, and events designed to complicate one's trip. David Carradine has four multiple roles, one of which is Jeff Cooper's martial arts master. It is noted that Lee was destined to play the role a few years before this ever got made, and just before his untimely death. Erica Creer's stunning beauty scorches up the screen and teases your mammaries in showing off her left backside, and she won't stick around for long. Classified as a martial arts movie, do not expect this to be an all-out gang war because it is high on craftsmanship and drama, plus it should be best described as a tale of epic proportions. CIRCLE OF IRON still doesn't reign supreme, and it isn't the single greatest piece of work Lee had come up with, but it challenges moviegoers to discover the secret ways of Lee's powerful telling of the martial arts legend. A probable common classic of its kind.
