Enter the Dragon

Movies, Martial arts

The first of a burgeoning series of American film industry attempts to colonise the kung-fu market, this manages to be inferior to even the weakest of Bruce Lee's echt-Chinese movies. A sorry mixture of James Bond and Fu Manchu, it tacks together the exploits of a multi-national crew of martial artists converging on Hong Kong for a tournament, infiltrated by Lee—fresh from his Shaolin temple—on an assignment to bust an opium racket. Worth seeing for Lee, but still unforgivably wasteful of his talents.
