Bruce Le's temporary comeback
5 February 2006 | by (Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

Bruce Le's 1990 comeback (before his return to obscurity, I guess?) is a typical modern HK actioner, derivative of the stuff John Woo & Jackie Chan were doing at the time. Plenty of chases, captures, escapes, re-captures, re-escapes, gunplay and martial arts (i.e. a duel in the ring). Released to video in 1991, it's another of Bruce Le's attempts at making an 'international blockbuster', in fact it's the most expensive movie of his career--but I preferred him as a Lee imitator in the 1970s, because he was funnier. But the production company was impressed by his 1980s 'epics' (i.e. FUTURE HUNTERS and REVENGE OF THE KICKFIGHTER), and invested the money hands-down, to make BLACK SPOT. Throw in plenty of Thai & Burmese extras, crew members from THE LAST EMPEROR, the cooperation of the Thai army (for usage of their tanks & soldiers), supporting roles by blond actresses Rossieo Badin & Fanny Hill, and you get a pretty typical action-war film along the lines of EASTERN CONDORS and BULLET IN THE HEAD.

Bruce Le still fights well, but looks so different (aging) that I almost didn't recognize him. BLACK SPOT was three years in the making, and Le broke a leg doing a stunt for the movie. Ever the trouper, he directed the remainder of the movie while in crutches.

Le plays a kung fu instructor at a health spa full of hot chicks (blond super-model types), but unfortunately, he must leave this dream job when mobsters (i.e. Wong Tao & Lo Lieh) pressure him into smuggling drugs at some Golden Triangle. Plenty of explosions and bad acting before Bruce Le himself gets shot dead by one of his own comrades who's gone trigger happy. BLACK SPOT was filmed in HK, Taiwan, Red China, Thailand and even France (where it was also a box office hit). I just thought it was okay.
