Tiger Man is an American-Taiwanese co-production made and released in 1978 starring Don Wong Tao, Cecil Peoples and Gam Ming (Tommy Lee). I believe the date listed here (1983) was the release date in Germany. Also... Let me say that as I write this review, the rating score is 8.2, which is beyond laughable.
The movie is a story about "Don Won" (Don Juan) and starts with him as a child working with his father on the farm. We learn that his dream was always to go to America... anyway... Some thugs show up in the village, Don's dad stands up to them and is beaten and killed. Later that night the thugs return and burn down the village forcing Don and his mother to move. They go to Don's uncle, who is a great kung fu master, and Don starts his training to become Tiger Man.
The Movie then jumps to 10 years later in the city of Taipei where Don interferes with the Tongs (gangsters) while defending his best friend (Bruce Lee). The gangsters swear that Don can never run and hide, they will find him and kill him. Don's mom gives him money that she saved and tells him to go to the America where he'll be safe, but it's not enough so he ends up in Hong Kong and the gangsters catch up to him again.
Basically, we follow Don through his life travels, trials and tribulations and yes he finally makes it to America about half way through the movie. There is some brief nudity and a few fights here and there, but I wish there was more. Some of you like this type of thing but it's just not my cup of tea and feel like I just wasted time.
