ENTER THE DRAGON
Arguably the most iconic martial arts movie of all time. Bruce Lee's full arsenal is on display from personal philosophies, striated muscles, kung fu pants and slippers, long staff, kali sticks, the deadly nunchaku, killer facial expressions
and those blood curdling war cries. By no means though did it set a precedent, rather, it took a familiar movie formula and have a genius martial arts actor in Bruce Lee put his stamp on it changing the game forever. He set the standard.
No, no, scratch that. He is the gold standard.
Still, after 40+ years, Bruce Lee and Enter the Dragon is revelant--alive and kicking!
MR. LEE He is a Shaolin Temple master who received an invitation to a martial arts tournament hosted by International drug trafficker, Han.
Recruited by British Intelligence, Mr. Lee's savvy, cat-like skills enabled him to infiltrate the island's fortress revealing an underground lair of heroin production and prostitution. Nothing stands in his way--he is the real deal.
• "Don't think. Feel!"
• "It's like a finger pointing away to the moon. Do not concentrate on the finger or you will miss all of the heavenly glory!"
• "My style? You can call it the art of fighting without fighting."
• "Boards don't hit back."
HAN A former Shaolin Temple monk turned renegade. He lives like a king on a secluded island off the coast of Hong Kong.
His only contact with the outside world is a tournament which he holds every three years. Handicapped from an assassination attempt, Han's left hand is a now decoy which can interchange with various claw-like, bladed appendages. Totally ruthless.
• "Gentlemen, you have our gratitude."
• "Very few people can be totally ruthless. It isn't easy; it takes more strength than you might believe."
• "The battle with the guards was magnificent. Your skill is extraordinary. And I was going to ask you to join us."
MR. WILLIAMS He's a kenpo karate star fighter out of the ghetto meanstreets of America. Targetted by racist cops, Williams easily dismantled them
before flying off to Hong Kong as a fugitive. There he meets his old friend Roper from the Nam' days. His unorthodox fighting style and defensive techniques added to his length makes him a tough match-up.
• "Ghettoes are the same all over the world. They stink."
• "Please understand, if I missed anyone... it's been a big day. I'm a little tired."
• "Bullshit, Mr. Han-man!"
• "Man, you come right out of a comic book."
ROPER A down and out gambler on the run from sizable debts in America. He gets the invitation to Han's martial arts tournament,
but later is given a tour of the illegal operations on the island--his invitation was actually a recruitment by Han.
• "You wanna bet?"
• "A woman like that could teach you a lot about yourself."
• "I'm a man of little faith, Mr. Han."
• "You want me to join this?"
BOLO Built like a tank, he is Han's brutal enforcer and top generals in the organization. Cold blooded and
sadistic, believed to be Han's only cherished son.
OHARRA Han's personal bodyguard. Tough and ruthless with a hideous scar on his face. He is disciplined in hard body martial
arts able to withstand unbelievble physical pain.
• "You must attend the morning ritual in uniform."
