The Big Boss a.k.a. Fists of Fury
Plot Synopsis: A young man sworn to an oath of non-violence works with his cousins in an ice factory where they mysteriously begin to disappear
Ok, before I get started let me get this out of the way. I like this film, a lot. With that said its original title should have been Sum-Dum-Fuk-Family.
Its about a guy (Bruce Lee in his first big film role) who goes to live with his cousins, in search of work. They get him a job at the local ice factory. Once night a couple of the cousins notice heroine in the blocks of ice. They go and tell there boss. He has them killed, as he is a drug smuggler.
The rest of the genius's cant figure out what happened to them, they know they went to see the boss, the big boss I should say, so they go see him too. They also get killed.
Bruce Lee decides to go see him as well, but as hes the star of the film the boss offers him a Foreman job. He finds out the ice factory is a smuggling operation, then finds his dead family. He goes home and finds the rest of them dead as well, see they went to see the boss to.
So Bruce goes back to see the boss. But hes Bruce Lee, he strolls in eating his lunch, then calmly kills everyone, then get arrested.
Yes I know it sounds awful, if you've never seen it, but it is fantastic. Yes its dumb as all hell, but the fighting scenes are light years ahead of there time. And Bruce Lee has gallons of charisma, making the film that much more enjoyable. Check it out
Overall 3 out of 5 Stars
