Review - Enter the Dragon

Obviously "classic martial arts movie" does not equal "good movie." The plot was at the same time ridiculously complicated and non-existent. Lee's over-acting involved slow-motion looks at his silly facial expressions while he made noises like a drunken chicken. The fighting was ludicrous — one punch from a good guy can kill his opponent while hundreds of punches from the bad guys hardly leave a dent. All the peripheral characters were parodies. Just silly and bad and dated.
