The "restored" version, has another 3 minutes of Bruce Lee's philosophy, as he "teaches," his student, near the beginning of the film. The opening scene, Bruce Lee has a Shaolin fight demonstration with Sammo Kam-Bo Hung (uncredited) and later with Jackie Chan (uncredited), in the underground opinion factory.
Also featured is Kien Shih (Expert at Northern Shaolin Kung Fu); and Angela Mao (aka Lady Whirlwind), playing Bruce's sister.
Unfortunately, Bruce Lee died on July 20, 1973, days before this film was release internationally.
This is the most slick and professionally filmed movie of Bruce Lee's, as it was a joint venture, between Warner Brothers and Concord Productions (a Bruce Lee and Raymond Chow company founded in 1971 in Hong Kong).
A classic film, as it showed Bruce Lee at top form. It is hard to imagine, that this, the last of his four complete films, were done in a two year period, and after he had "suffered a severe back injury, [on August 12, 1970] while attempting some heavy weightlifting before warming up properly." BL: the Evolution of a Martial Artist (2013).

Although fight choreography has been done better in other movies, nothing beats Bruce Lee in such an iconic role.

Wow, where to start with this film. This movie is a legendary one and is action packed with late martial arts legend Bruce Lee. This film had an amazing cast, great setting, awesome plot and well-choreographed action. This was Bruce Lee’s last full film he acted as Game of Death was completed after he died, but with this movie he left his legacy with a huge bang. And what a bang of a film this was, it’s so legendary posters are still being sold and quotes from the film are still said till this day. In my opinion this was a great movie and one I will never forget as it had some very memorable sequences and imagery that has been etched into my mind. One scene in particular has to be the final fight sequence with Bruce and the boss of the tournament, the way it was filmed was excellent and the action was pulled off was so extravagant people forget their even watching a movie. John Saxon and Jim Kelly play their parts well and Bolo Yeung makes an appearance as this muscular martial artist in the tournament. One of my favourite lines from this film was said by Bruce Lee himself, when the Caucasian martial artist breaks the board in front of him, Bruce turns towards him and says “boards don’t hit back”. Just these words alone made us the audience realise just how confident and professional Bruce was, not only that but he was very insightful and some of his philosophy is shown throughout the film. Overall I give this film a 5/5, as I really loved it and it was Bruce’s last film. This one will be stuck with you for the ages. I recommend everyone to see it, even those who don’t like martial arts films usually.

The Dragon Master -- nothing more need be said --- a most sad and untimely death for all of us. (#3 student when he was in Seattle)

Unfortunately the library's sole copy is too scratched for the DVD players in my home.
