"Mission For The Dragon" (or as it is called on IMDb, Rage of the Dragon) is actually one of the better Bruceplotation films which flooded Hong Kong cinema in the late 70s after Bruce Lee's death. The basic plot is familiar to anyone who has seen more than about four martial arts films. A kung fu student, here played by Dragon Lee, finds out that his father has been murdered, and so trains a little harder and sets out to avenge his death. Carter Wong, who starred in the "18 Bronzemen" plays the chief villain and it's not really a spoiler to say as with all films of the genre it ends with a climatic fight between the two leads.
It doesn't come close to the brilliance of Bruce Lee, or even the early work of Jackie Chan, but there is enough fighting to keep an easily amused viewer occupied for 80 odd minutes.
