Trivia

The Asian actor dressed up as the black American fighter towards the end of the movie is a parody of Hollywood's casting during that time. Hollywood often cast white people to play Asians, so they cast an Asian man to play a black American. See more »

Sammo has some kung fu skills!
8 February 2003 | by SinjinSBSee all my reviews

Sammo Hung directed and stars in this parody of Enter the Dragon. Parody might be a bit strong, it's somewhere between a parody and a tribute to the late great Bruce Lee. You can't take this movie too seriously, but if you go in with the right mindset it's fairly entertaining. There is a lot of comedy thrown in with a few really good kung fu scenes. No surprise that Sammo is good with the jokes, but he definitely has some kung fu skills! He has an uncredited role in the original Enter the Dragon where he fights Bruce Lee.

**1/2 (Out of 4)
