Cinema-Maniac: Return of the Dragon (The Way of the Dragon) (1973) Review

Bruce Lee plus comedy equal gold in Return of the Dragon. While it’s a unusual movie compared to other of Bruce Lee classic, it’a still a entertaining to watch.

Bruce Lee both wrote and directed Return of the Dragon, by watching the movie you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s Bruce Lee first and only time directing a movie. Like his Martial Arts, he does it with grace and flows easily to watch.

Main plot is Bruce Lee plays a man who visits his relatives at their restaurant in Italy and has to help them defend against brutal gangsters harassing them. It has a good blend of drama and humor, though I think it lack in Martial Art when compared to Enter the Dragon or Fists of Fury.

It’s still to this day that Bruce Lee died unprecedentedly, he had a bright future many more bright ideas. This movie reminds us of what could have been a legendary career of Martial Art cinema Icon.
