The Little Dragon dazzles the Eternal City - The Way of the Dragon review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Bruce Lee stars and directs this excellent kung fu flick. The "Little Dragon" plays Tang Lung, a boy from Hong Kong's countryside sent to Rome to protect a Chinese restaurant from a gang of thugs (the "Mafia" is not mentioned, although the implication is not so subtle). Lee puts in a great performance, showing also great acting ability, particularly when it comes to the more comedic moments. Although the plot is fairly simple, the excellent action more than makes up for it, particularly a scene where Lee shows his proficiency with traditional weapons such as the staff and the deadly nunchaku, and the epic fight scene in the Colosseum against Chuck Norris.

An absolute must for fans of the genre. The extras are also very good, including the retrospective on the movie and interviews with the producers and co-stars.
