We all know Bruce Lee from certain fighting scenes from movies. Bruce's poem against Chuck Norris in the Roman Coliseum in Enter the Dragon. The battle scene is located next to 5 "7" Bruce and 7 "2" tall Kareem Abdul-Jabbar under "Death Scenes". Who can forget Bruce's classic end and jumped to attackers at the last scene of "CHINESE CONNECTION"? With many of these classic film footage framed in memory, let's walk on Bruce Lee's films.
This first film, "GOLDEN GATE GIRL", will lead back to 1941. Bruce was only a few months old when he filmed this movie in San Francisco, where Bruce was born. There is no karate in this movie. Early on, it was possible that Bruce was introduced to filmmaking at a young age.
Bruce's first star, "THE KID", was shot in Hong Kong in 1950 when Bruce was 10 years old. In this film, he starts to see a very nice and participant child who played the camera very well. Bruce Lee's father was a well-known Chinese actor who also appeared in this film. Bruce Lee also worked with his father in 1946 in a movie called "MANKIND BIRTH".
Bruce moved to California from San Francisco in 1959, then moved to Seattle. . He later attended the University of Washington, where he enrolled in drama and studied philosophy. All the time Bruce practiced Wing Chun Kung Fu, whom he studied in Hong Kong from Yip Man. Thanks to Bruce's innovations, mixing traditional kung fu, boxing, wrestling, and other combat forms, creating the style of mixed martial arts, Jeet Kune Do.
Expanding Martial Arts Practice and Teaching in the 1960s Bruce never forgot the background of films. This led to more TV roles, including "The GREEN HORNET" and "BATMAN" in 1966-1977. Bruce was also in "IRONSIDE" in 1967, "BLONDIE" in 1969 and "HERE THE BRIDES" in 1969. In 1971, Bruce appeared in some "LONGSTREET" episodes. What was unique about the role of LONGSTREET is himself and the philosophy of martial arts and martial arts. In 1971, Lee introduced a modern kung fu western show to Warner Brothers, which of course had to be nailed. Unfortunately, Warner Brothers used the concept of the Shaolin Priest wandering westward and played a role in David Carradine. At that time David Carradine was never a martial arts training. This has allowed Lee to be limited in what kind of films or roles they can play in the American television and film market. In a fair relationship with Warner Brothers, Lee's English was hard for some of them to understand.
Bruce's first film in the United States after "GOLDEN GATE GIRL" in 1941 was "MARLOWE" starring James Garner as a somewhat rough private investigator. The film was rather mediocre, Bruce was a member of a Chinese band who used karate and interrupted James Garner's office. In a scene, James Garner fights with Bruce Lee and somehow beats him. This is not a movie that Bruce Lee is very familiar with.
Bruce Lee's film actor career, now in the US, Bruce travels to Hong Kong and knows the GREEN HORNET series. In Hong Kong, the TV series is known as "KATO SHOW". With the popularity of Hong Kong and Asia, Bruce decides to try his hand in the Asian film industry. In 1971, Bruce Lee in "THE BIG BOSS", the first Kung Fu / Martial Arts in Asia. This film was filmed in Thailand and became popular in Asia. Frankly, in my opinion, this is not a very good movie. The fight was not so good. The only unique part of the film was the bad guy who threw a knife into Bruce, which Bruce catches with a kick that hit the opponent in a killing blow on his body. The film track is based on an ice factory, which the boss has undergone, selling drugs. If I had never seen this movie, I couldn't have left anything from Bruce Lee's representation. I'll give you a star for historical purposes. Note: In the US market this film is also known as "FURS OF FURY"
The real turning point of Bruce Lee's films in 1972 was "FURY OF FURY". the film is known as "CHINESE CONNECTION". This movie is absolutely classic. In this film, we can see more hands and less swords and knives at "THE BIG BOSS". This film is a new class and genre of martial arts films. In the history of the film, Bruce Lee is a student of a kung fu school in the early 1900s. This was the time when Shanghai, China, the European powers, and most recently Japan. The Japanese have retained power over the local police and Chinese as second-class citizens. One day, two Japanese came to Bruce Lee's school and swallowed the absorbing sign that spoiled the Chinese. Bruce Lee stunned the insult, took the signal to the Japanese karate school, beat everyone. Things then intensified between the Chinese and the Japanese, Bruce Lee essentially whipped up all the Japanese. The last scene is for Japanese and police to close Kung Fu school and arrest Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee resists shooting directly against weapons. There are many important points here. There is a country or part of a country that has been subjected to foreign power. The locals are fighting. He raises good people against bosses. My school is better than your karate school. The real story is that Bruce Lee stood up and resisted the opponent. This message has resonated to many people in third world countries. It was a fight against oppression. In this film, martial arts were good. The storyline made it great. If you are a fan of Bruce Lee, the film must be seen.
Two new martial arts films have been made and a huge response in the box, Bruce Lee is currently a qualified Hong Kong and Asian star. With this Asian film success, Bruce Lee is gaining more and more recognition as a Hollywood movie star. Bruce's next film is "DRAGON Path" or "CALL RETURN". This film was made in Rome with the epic scene between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. This movie was the first film Bruce wrote, arranged, produced and starred. It was a martial arts action, it was a comedy movie. The film was rather mediocre. The restaurant behind the battle scene shows Bruce's talent with empty karate as well as a staff and nunchucks. Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris were friends and worked together. Bruce asked Chuck if he wanted to be in his movie. Chuck asked who would win the fight between them. Bruce said, "I, of course, this is my movie!" This struggle was classic in that it was between two marine artists who influenced each other and vowed to fight for death. This fight scene really spoke more about what the martial artist and the representation are. This movie is actually Chuck Norris's film career. Good stuff! This movie adds a star to the story and three stars for Bruce and Chuck's epic battle.
Bruce's next film was "ENTER THE DRAGON" in 1973. This film is important for the production of the Hollywood film producer, Warner Brothers, and the Hong Kong company Golden Harvest. . Bruce Lee was a writer, editor and star of this film. "INTRODUCTION TO DRAGON" was also introduced by John Saxon, Jim Kelly, Robert Wall, Bolo Yueng and Rookie Jackie Chan. Quality and story are wise, it's a well-produced movie, good video, action, storyline and characters. According to a source, Bruce Lee wanted to show some of the good parts of martial arts and Chinese culture. The film cost about $ 850,000 and made around $ 25 million in the US and $ 200 worldwide. It was a well-composed movie that I gave five stars. Because of Bruce Lee's death in 1973, it was the last movie, Bruce Lee, before he died.
"The DEATH GAME" came out in 1978. This is a movie where Bruce Lee struggles with different martial artists at different levels of the pagoda. The main idea of the film is to introduce the techniques of Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do and how they are used to adapt to different combat styles. The most striking part of the film is Bruce Lee, 5 "7" high combat Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 7 "high". Talk about extremes. In this case, Bruce realized that Kareem's light sensitivity defeated him. The Pilipino karate master, Dan Inosanto, was one of Bruce Lee's opponents in this film. Dan was the martial artist who introduced Bruce Lee to the nunchuck. Three months later, Bruce was better than Dan, with nunchuck. Bruce also struggled with a number of techniques with a Japanese karate master. With regard to the character of the film, I will give three stars about the film and how Jeet Kune Do is presented. Bruce is probably shown in this yellow sweat suit.
Feedback was Bruce Lee's first film role when he was a few months old. He has performed in many American television shows and films that showed his talent but he was unable to reach stardom and a Chinese man. He sparked in Hong Kong martial arts films, and finally deserved Hollywood recognition. More than an actor Bruce Lee has re-formed martial arts, karate films, and became a cultural icon. Today's popularity shows how important it is and what it has given us. He was really a man before his time. Luckily, we can see Bruce Lee from his films.
