Bruce Lee at his best in a international mish-mash
26 March 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Intresting international co-production producer Dick Randall has put together! Hong Kong Bruce Lee clone Bruce Le takes on Ninja's, Harold "Odd Job" Sakata, and Bolo Yeung! The film even uses stock music from ENTER THE DRAGON, CASSANDRA CROSSING and JAMES BOND films! (did they get permission to use it?) The begining credit is amusing, and the film has some real good action scenes and plenty of nudity. And the filmmakers billed someone as CHICK NORRIS!

Several US video print (usually titled EYE OF THE DRAGON) released the TV prints of this film (maybe due to fact the TV print doesn't have a copyright or something), and all the nudity and gore is cut out. Randall went on to produce the GYMKATA KILLER with Lee and some international cast!
