The Big Boss
In his first starring role, legendary martial arts star Bruce Lee sets the screen ablaze in this thrilling tale of revenge and retribution. Having made a vow never to fight again, a factory worker named Cheng (Lee) does his best to put up with an abusive boss. But when Cheng's beautiful cousin is kidnapped by company thugs, Cheng is forced to take matters into his own hands—and fists—to save her. Packed with pulse-pounding action, The Big Boss remains one of the most spellbinding martial arts thrillers ever made.
Fist of Fury
In the China of 1908, respecting one's teacher is a sign of breeding, and avenging his murder a sacred duty. When a martial arts master (Bruce Lee) learns his revered kung fu instructor has been murdered, his shock turns first to disbelief, then to anger. Determined to punish the gang responsible, he travels to Shanghai to hunt down the killers—and ends up facing some of his most dangerous opponents. With a combination of power, grace and humor, this action-packed thriller is a true Bruce Lee classic.
Way of the Dragon
In this high-kicking martial arts thriller, a young man (Bruce Lee) is called to Rome to help a family friend whose restaurant is being targeted by local gangsters. Used to getting their own way, these ruthless men make the mistake of underestimating the young man's ingenuity. When they are unable to get rid of him, they call in an international martial arts champion
(Chuck Norris), creating the ultimate clash of kung fu masters in the ancient city's majestic coliseum.
Game of Death
Bruce Lee's last screen work (he died during the production) is the film that mystifies the man and the legend. Billy Lo (Lee) is a young kung fu movie star with a flourishing career and a promising future. As the leader of a syndicate known for its exploitation of entertainers, Dr. Land (Dean Jagger) jumps at the chance to capitalize on Billy's celebrated status and that of his singer-girlfriend. Refusing to sign with Land, Billy's martial arts mastery is put to the test when he is brutally harassed by Land's men in an attempt to change his mind. In a stunning showdown, Billy goes one-on-one with a villainous stream of deadly kung fu fighters in a final bid for his freedom.
Game of Death II
In this dark tale of revenge, Bruce Lee "returns" as Billy Lo, whose best friend Chin Ku (Wong Ching Lei) dies of a sudden illness. But suspicion of foul play arises when a gang tries to steal Ku's coffin at the funeral using a helicopter. When Lo's younger brother Bobby Lo (Tong Lung) hears about the incident, he leaves his Buddhist master (Roy Chiao) to investigate the truth. His trail soon leads him to the Castle of Death, the last place Chin Ku was seen alive. There, he meets and befriends an unlikely ally—a cruel and merciless martial arts expert (Roy Horan) who is also the tower's master. But when the master dies under mysterious circumstances, Lo ends up dueling with someone far more terrifying.
