In the movie, Chen Zhen (Bruce Lee) sets out to avenge the death of his teacher Huo Yuanjia, and at one point during the movie, the Chinese Wushu students are called "sick men of Asia" by their rivals. In real-life, Huo Yuanjia was a legendary Wushu martial artist, and in 1901, accepted the challenge of a Russian fighter who called all Chinese people "sick men of Asia". See more »
As Chen makes his way through the Japanese school at the end of the movie he cautiously goes to open the sliding doors by using one hand and standing to the side. Upon opening the door the scene cuts to the other side and he is suddenly standing centrally and opens both doors together. This happens more than once. See more »

For its original 1972 UK cinema release the BBFC requested a cut to remove a shot of a flying throat kick, though it appeared intact in all early theatrical prints and was possibly waived before release. In 1978 the film was withdrawn by BBFC director James Ferman (together with Enter the Dragon) and all nunchaku footage removed together with the previously mentioned throat kick, and these cuts, (totalling 2 mins 51 secs) would persist in all of the film's UK video releases. The cuts were fully restored for the 2001 Hong Kong Legends release. See more »
Bruce Lee's best performance in a best revenge movie.
After seeing Fists Of Fury(a.k.a The Big Boss) on T.V, I was surprised that they showed his next movie The Chinese Connections(a.k.a Fist Of Fury) and I really enjoyed and I still love it, Bruce Lee was amazing, and his martial art skills were terrific, but what really amazed me the most was seeing him beating the s**t out of those japanese people, and fighting that Russian. This is the best movie Bruce Lee has made before starring in Enter The Dragon, and if you're a Bruce Lee fan please watch this movie, you'll love this.
