Prepare for a feast of pristine big screen martial arts mayhem like you’ve never seen before! To celebrate the upcoming release of the Bruce Lee at Golden Harvest box set (released 17th July), Arrow Video’s definitive collection of beautifully restored martial arts classics, the films are being shown in UK cinemas (from Manchester to Glasgow and Belfast to Bradford) from June 2nd (limited previews from 31st May) throughout June and July.
When former child actor and Hollywood TV sidekick Bruce Lee returned to his native Hong Kong in 1971 to star in two films for fledgling company Golden Harvest, movie history was made thanks to one of the most iconic partnerships between star and studio that cinema has ever seen. In only a handful of films, Lee high-kicked his way into audiences’ imaginations forever, thanks to his blistering screen presence and his masterful ‘Jeet Kune Do’ fighting technique. The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, The Way of the Dragon, Game of Death and Game of Death II are the ultimate tribute to the legendary Bruce Lee’s enduring legacy, and a must-see for action fans.
SYNOPSIS: Tang Lung (Lee) is a naïve country boy from Hong Kong who is shipped off to sunny Rome in order to assist a family friend whose Chinese restaurant is under threat from a local gangster. Training the waiters in self-defence while taking on Italian thugs single-handedly, the gangster decides to retaliate by flying in some of the best fighters from America (including Colt, played by Chuck Norris) and Japan to take Tang down. Soon the columns of the Colosseum will rumble with the sound of Tang Lung’s fury!
