Bruce Lee outstanding...
22 September 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The filmmakers finally got it half right this time. By featuring Bruce Lee through most of the first half of the film, they made AN ORPHAN'S TRAGEDY worth sitting through- though they still didn't go that extra mile and feature him throughout the entire film. As with both THE KID and THE GUIDING LIGHT, this was a mistake. The first half of AN ORPHAN'S TRAGEDY, in which Lee is abducted by an escaped convict, is great film noir and Lee's performance is outstanding. Every emotion- mostly fear- is clearly reflected on his face. An outstanding early performance by one of film-making's pioneers. This one rates a look. It'll be interesting to see some of his later films, in which he has even more substantial roles.
