Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris star in this kung-fu gem. Honestly just watching Chuck Norris fight Bruce Lee is the best part of the film. The rest of the film really felt like filler. While it was partially comical most of it was boring or lackluster. The only reason I kept watching the film was to see the aforementioned fight. If you are looking for a film that is good in the background and doesn’t require dedicated focus Way of the Dragon is a good film for it.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
From the beginning of the film you can tell what kind of film Way of the Dragon is going to be. It starts with Bruce Lee acting like he a man in another country and gets himself in trouble. From there the plot is fairly predictable everyone doubts him until he fights. The plot centers around gangs trying to push a family and friends out of the restaurant business. The scenes in the film start to feel like deja vu. It was hard to focus on the plot. Honestly I just wanted to see the fight scenes between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. It was painful to get to that point however it was worth the wait to see the ‘final’ battle on the Roman Colosseum. While I did enjoy the film it isn’t something I would go actively seeing to watch again. If you want a great Bruce Lee film I would recommend Enter The Dragon instead of this film.
