A martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for the death of his SISTER, Lee enters a kung fu competition in an attempt to fight his way to the dealer’s headquarters with the help of some friends.
Everybody has their opinion, and movies are one of the most debatable topics there is, but few cinema buffs would deny that this is the greatest Kung Fu movie ever made. From criminal activity to an abundance of memorable fight sequences, Enter the Dragon defines what a great Kung Fu movie should be. It pulls no punches and delivers all the blows. There are a lot of good Bruce Lee films, but over the years this has become THE Bruce Lee film.

We’re now going on 48 years since his passing and yet still he’s delivering top level entertainment. Warrior, an hour long action series on HBO Max is executive produced by Shannon Lee (Bruce’s daughter) and filmmaker Justin Lin. This hit series which just finished up its second season is based on an original concept and treatment by Bruce him elf. Warrior is “a crime drama set in the 19th century that follows martial arts prodigy Ah Sahm, a Chinese immigrant who arrives in the City By the Bay under mysterious circumstances. Once he proves his prowess as a fighter, Ah Sahm becomes a hit man for one of Chinatown’s most powerful organized crime families. As he is mentored by the son of the crime family’s leader, learning the ins and outs of gang warfare, Ah Sahm wins the confidence of brothel Madame Ah Toy, eventually revealing to her his true intentions.” Praised for its talented cast, ambitious style, well crafted fight choreography and ability to tackle major issues affecting society today like prejudice, racism, greed and good vs. evil, Warrior carries on the legacy of Bruce Lee in a beautifully authentic fashion.

The best way I could think to do that was with a famous quote f from the man, the myth, the legend himself:
