Filmed before but released after Jackie Chan's two Seasonal Productions films; Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master; Dragon Fist was filmed as a Mandarin-language movie. However, the focus on the dubbing switched to Cantonese due to the success of the Cantonese-language Seasonal films. This is why most releases feature Cantonese as the only Chinese dialect option, despite the fact that the harder-to-find Mandarin track syncs up with the actors far better. See more »
Lo Wei's moulding of Jackie Chan into the new Bruce Lee' was never more prevalent than in this schlocky kung fu time-waster, an undemanding piece that takes itself just a bit too seriously. Chan plays the downhearted student type desperate to seek vengeance for his teacher's death, beaten at the hands of a rival master. There's also something about the criminal Wei Clan smuggling and pillaging this and that, but the overall lack of excitement really makes this one a bit of a drag. Jackie is of course the saving grace, but Dragon Fist is undoubtedly a dreadful waste of his talents.
