Did You Know?


Due to Video Gems' US release with the title "Fist of Fury II" on the box art, there has been frequent confusion as which film, this or Jing wu men xu ji (1977), is really the first sequel to the original Fist of Fury (1972) (aka Fist of Fury). Despite Video Gems wrongly calling the film "Fist of Fury II" on the box art, the title card in the film itself read "The Fist of Fury." See more »

Fist of honor...
18 July 2009 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

Fist Of Fury III stars Bruce Li as the brother of Bruce Lee's character who after accomplishing revenge on the Japanese fighters that killed his brother, returns to take care of his mother and live in the country. Determined to live a peaceful life he finds himself forced into action as Japanese thugs follow him and make his life miserable. Fist Of Fury III is way better than Fist Of Fury II, but (of course) not up to the standard of Bruce Lee's original. This one is a standard kung fu cheapie in all arenas, except that the fights are better handled, the story develops the vengeance angle fairly well and in fact has a great climax involving a thunderstorm that basically adds to the action's overall mood. Once again it's no great masterpiece and Bruce Li, while charismatic, is not Bruce Lee but as far as kung fu movies go this is as good as these things get. Another nice touch is bringing back the English Intrepeter from Bruce Lee's Return Of The Dragon, as well as crisp directing during the action in the style of Bruce Lee's original. It's nothing worth going out of your way to locate, but if found in the bargain bin or in a Kung Fu movie collection, it's worth picking up.
