The Chinese Connection (1972)

(aka: The Iron Hand)



Reviews and Comments

The Chinese Connection is one of Bruce Lee's best and most influential films, but it's still unlikely to appeal to any but Lee's core fans. The narrative is too deliberate, the characters too shallow, and the atmosphere it conjures isn't as rich with culture clash and political upheaval as it wants to be. Jet Li's remake, Fist of Legend, is much better.
