Trivia

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 Fists of Fury II (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 »

Not exactly a blockbuster but...
15 April 2001 | by TheEnglish_KnightSee all my reviews

it can hold its own, the plot isn't water tight and the editing on the version i have leaves alot to be desired. Its got a bit of everything really, romance (although gone with the wind it ain't), its got family tragedies stemming from the previous 2 films and its got all the action you'd want. Obviously the man character isn't bruce lee so people judge the film on that, but to be honest he does just a good a job as bruce. The fight scenes are fluent and its an allround good film just don't expect any sort of amazing plot and it is a bit on the dark side at times just sit back and watch a good fight film.
