"A good fight should be like a small play, but played seriously. A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract. When he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, I do not hit. It hits all by itself." - Lee, Enter the Dragon (1973)

Warner Brothers, rated R, 98 minutes.

Directed By: Robert Clouse

Synopsis: A martial arts expert is recruited to infiltrate a kung fu tournament in order to expose an opium dealer and avenge the death of his sister.

Fact: Bruce Lee died three weeks before the premiere of this film.

Trivia: Jackie Chan has a cameo appearance in this movie. Lee breaks his neck.

Movie Mistake: Hans glove disappears and reappears during his fight with Lee.

My Take: This is the best martial art's movie of all time and Bruce Lee is the master. It's unfortunate that he died so young before we could see him achieve his full potential.
