Collection of five of Bruce Lee's most iconic martial arts films. In 'The Big Boss' (1971) Lee plays Cheng Chao-An, an immigrant worker who takes a job with his cousins in an ice factory and discovers all manner of suspicious goings-on. Cheng might have promised his mother not to fight again, but when he begins to investigate a series of disappearances - the latest of which has seen his own cousin go missing - he can't help but display his formidable martial arts skills. Taking on one opponent after another, Cheng will not stop until he has fought his way to the truth and the inevitable confrontation with the man known only as 'The Big Boss'. 'Fist of Fury' (1972) stars Lee as Chen Zhen, a martial arts student whose mentor dies in suspicious circumstances. Whilst he is mourning his old friend, members of a rival school arrive and taunt Chen and his friends, who do not react at first. Chen later humiliates his adversaries by beating every single one of them, but this causes bloody repercussions and begins to uncover the real reasons behind his master's death. In 'The Way of the Dragon' (1973) martial arts expert Tang Lung (Lee) arrives in Rome to protect a family friend's restaurant from a powerful Mafia man. A violent altercation between Tang and the mobster's heavies persuades the gang boss to call for reinforcements - an American martial arts assassin (Chuck Norris) who challenges Tang to a fight to the death within the walls of the Colosseum. In 'Enter the Dragon' (1973) Lee plays a secret agent sent to infiltrate a martial arts tournament presided over by a one-handed super-villain. His mission: to destroy the villain's opium-smuggling racket. Finally, Lee's last film before his death was 'Game of Death' (1978), in which he stars as a successful martial artist who refuses to join a crime syndicate and has a contract put on his head. The assassination attempt fails but his death is broadcast to the world to throw the criminals off his trail. Unfortunately, the hoods do not believe the stories and make him face a series of adversaries in one-to-one fights to save the life of his girlfriend (Colleen Camp).

Bruce Lee was working on Game of Death and made the scenes you see in this version of GoD (totally different vision to what BL was going to make). When Warner Bros and Golden Harvest got together and were making Blood and Steel (Enter the Dragon) and as they say, the rest is history.

No. Transferred from a new 4K scan and restoration to 1080p Blu-Ray. Although this method should provide superior video quality if done well compared to previous releases on Blu-Ray.

Obviously I don't expect it to be as low as a fiver which Xtra-vision were selling for but seeing as it's no longer available in the UK they usually sell for over £15 which is a bit pricey imo. I wasn't disrespecting you mate just wanted to warn others that it's not available to buy (new) from major retailers (barring ebay)

I think it was £15.99 when listed originally at Amazon.co.uk, & I have seen it as low as "Buy 3 for £17.00", but it may have been lower during a Lightning Deal/Black Friday (or similar) event.

Given that it is now out-of-print, I don't think £15.00 is unreasonable, especially given the content on the disc.

Good to know I'd read somewhere else that it included the 40th Edition but it was never clear from the packaging. Enjoy!
