Bruce Lee stars as Chen Zhen, a brilliant Kung Fu student who returns to Shanghai to visit his former teacher who mysteriously passes away before his arrival. This along with a rival Japanese karate school led by Hiroshi Suzuki want to get rid of the bothersome Ching Woo School. But the unhinged Chen Zhen will stop at nothing to find out who murdered/killed his beloved teacher, even if he has to unleash his deadly fist of fury. Be it alive or dead, when it comes to vengeance there will be a price to pay.
An awesome movie that is a must see for action film fans. Bruce Lee oozes a physical charisma that has rarely been captured on celluloid. Bruce Lee wanted to make films that appealed to everyone and wanted to break into the Japanese market but this movie wasn't going to allow that due to the subject matter provided by Lo Wei. His next film would be (to date) his biggest success money wise, Way of the Dragon.
