Storyline

A martial arts expert named Chang Chen-Wai runs a jade-importing business with his brother, Chang Fan. When Chang Fan suddenly disappears on a buying trip in Thailand, Chang Chen-Wai gets a little worried and decides to travel down there to find him. When he arrives there, he meets another kung fu expert named Li Pai-Yu after helping him fight off local thugs in a village. They become friends and Li decides to help Chang Chen-Wai find his missing brother. When they both learn that Chang Fan was murdered by the henchmen of a gangster named Ming Pan-Tin, Chang Chen-Wai resolves to revenge his death. They both go to fight off the henchmen one by one and find the head leader, Ming Pan-Tin. Written by Chris Stoddard <chris_stoddard_78@yahoo.com>

Kung-fu, bell bottoms, and an exotic Thai backdrop...
23 March 2009 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Like "The Big Boss" (Bruce Lee's first film), "Spirits of Bruce Lee" is an early '70s martial arts thriller filmed in Thailand with a mostly Chinese cast and crew. And no, the movie has absolutely nothing to do with Bruce Lee; the title is just another lame attempt by the Hong Kong film industry to cash in on Lee's name. Michael Chan stars as a man who travels to Thailand to avenge the murder of his brother--and who is, of course, well-equipped to deal with the bad guys because of his outstanding martial abilities. Chan is aided by an undercover cop and a Chinese family living in Thailand; together they raid the palatial estate of the lead villain, a fellow who mutters "Gol-damn" (that's right: "gol-damn", not "goddamn") when he's angry and spends most of the film clenching a cigarette holder in his snarling mouth. After Mr. Big has finally been dispatched, a couple of his henchmen show up (one of them, rail-thin and dressed as a cowboy, uses a whip) and Chan has it out with them, too. "Spirits of Bruce Lee" suffers from all the usual deficiencies of the genre: poor pacing, not-very-funny comic relief (provided by a heavyset young man known only as 'Fatty'), ridiculous dubbing. But it's filled with hand-to-hand and foot-to-foot combat, and that's the only thing you can reasonably expect from a kung-fu picture. Michael Chan is, as always, impressive in the fight scenes...and this is one of the few films in which he manages not to look sinister.
