Must See Films

Hailed as the greatest martial arts master piece,Enter The Dragon, is a film everyone should see. Enter the Dragon is a 1973 Hong Kong martial arts action film directed by Robert Clouse; starring Bruce Lee, Jim Kelly and John Saxon. This was Bruce Lee’s final film appearance,and was released on July 26, 1973, six days after Lee’s death, in Hong Kong. Enter the Dragon was the first Chinese martial arts film to have been produced by a major Hollywood studio – Warner Bros. and was produced in association with Golden Harvest and Lee’s Concord Production Company. The film is largely set in Hong Kong. Among the stuntmen for the film were members of the Seven Little Fortunes, including Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung.

This was arguably instrumental in Chan and Hung’s further association with Golden Harvest studios, which later launched their careers. The portly Hung is shown fighting Lee in the opening sequence of the movie and Chan shows up as a henchman when Lee is discovered inside Han’s underground lair. The finished version of the film was significantly different from the original screenplay drafts as Bruce Lee revised much of the script himself, including having written and directed the film’s opening Shaolin Monastery fight sequence. Lee wanted to use the film as a vehicle for expressing what he saw as the beauty of his Chinese culture, rather than it being just another action film. This film has gone on to be more than a cult classic spawning martial artists across the world In 2004, Enter the Dragon was deemed “culturally significant” in the United States and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
