Storyline

Brandon plays Brandon Ma, a regular working Joe who holds down two jobs, so he can support his girlfriend May and his dream of owning a motorcycle. Brandon's best friend is Michael (played by Michael Wong), an ambitious and murderous dope peddler. How Brandon and Michael ever became friends is the biggest mystery in the film. In any case, Michael covets May and so he comes up with a plan that will win her for him, and solves a problem he's been having. It seems that an undercover cop named Sharky has been using his police connections to dominate the local cocaine trade, so Michael has him killed and uses Brandon as the fall guy. Brandon goes to jail, though he thinks that he will be released soon thanks to the efforts of his good buddy Michael. Eight years later Brandon finally gets out of jail.

Great flick! Lee at his best.
15 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Legacy of Rage is a great action/drama film. The film's plot is simple. Brandon Ma (LEE)is set up by his friend Micheal, so Micheal can still Brandon's girl. when Brandon gets out of jail, he has only one thing on his mind...REVENGE.The film has much more acting in it then expected but it is a joyful treat. Lee shows off his acting chops and showcases some sweet martial arts skills. Legacy of Rage also has some good gunplay scenes and the over the top violence is fun to watch. I believe this is Lee's 2nd best film. A must see for Brandon Lee fans. The film had a good budget and the storyline is exciting. It's a fun flick. But if you aren't a big foreign films person...don't bother with it.
