funnily enough for those Stephen chow fans, the best impersonation he ever did of Bruce was the one in ALL FOR THE WINNER where he punches a bloke in slow motion ( similar to fist of fury) and a towel falls on his head ( its the best visual gag of the lot). another one was in KING OF COMEDY where he is staging a fist of fury play and a girl comes to watch and applaud, taps his back to congratulate him on setting the play up, and he grabs her and throws her against the wall.
So having seen these previous Bruce Lee gags in his other films, in FIST OF FURY 91 I was looking to something a bit special.
Boy was I let down. I'm not sure whether its because this is one of his earlier films and his sense of comedy wasn't refined yet, and whether he tried to make up for this later by doing the above Bruce gags in the above later films ( eventually resulting in paying a serious homage to him in KUNG FU HUSTLE and its upcoming sequel)but in FIST OF FURY 91 this Bruce lee wannabe remake is a bit weak. actually hoping for something a bit better, there's not much i can remember from this film. the boxing match scene at the end is quite entertaining - the way the boxers bounce up from the ring like characters in a capcom video game are funny.
no i was looking forward to some real funny imitations of Bruce lee scenes but unfortunately this one decided to have an original plot and a pretty crap one at that.
all in all if you like Stephen chow, try ALL FOR THE WINNER, KING OF COMEDY, GOD OF COOKERY and of course SHAOLIN SOCCER.if you wanna see commercial big budget chow, watch KUNG FU HUSTLE,right now FIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL is playing so ill let you know how that works out.
