They called him Bruce...
The film that should have put Bruce Lee over the top has him battling an evil ring of drug dealers while out to avenge his sister's death ("You have offended my family and you have offended the Shaman temple."). It's a shame that Bruce died so young (and that his son Brandon died even younger), given that he was as close to superhuman as possible. We can only imagine what his follow up vehicles would have been like.

One thing I do know from watching an old black and white interview with Bruce was that he said he had kind of made it his goal in life to show people around the world that there was more to martial arts than just breaking boards and little men kicking big men in the crotch.

The plot itself is meaningless in light of Bruce's martial arts antics and the antics of John Saxon and Williams. Particularly memorable is the scene in the room full of mirrors. Give this a look ASAP.
