Enter the Dragon

San Francisco Chronicle
Enter the Dragon goes far beyond the philosophical, of course. Its best sequences, and the only real reason for seeing it again, involve Lee's phenomenal physical and emotional presence.
The A.V. Club
Even though the movie was, in a lot of ways, a glorious mess, it turned out to be a huge success on just about every level.
If you want plot and thespian displays, well, look elsewhere. For action, you can't top this film.
It's not a great film, but Lee's superhuman skills make it an occasionally jaw-dropping experience.
The movie can be flat-out fun, a sort of carnival of combat that can turn even a sophisticated audience into a group of gawking kids at a Saturday matinee.
Film carries all the explosive trappings that make for a hit in its intended market and is glossed with a melodramatic narrative to take full advantage of its theme.
Ripping entertainment overall, with just enough meat for amateur sociologists.
The lack of sentimentality helps focus the viewer on what the film depicts exceptionally well, namely wanton bad behavior and enthralling, wall-to-wall ass-kicking.
TV Guide Magazine
Nobody shows much evidence of acting ability, and the script is full of holes. Nonstop action is what these films are about, and that's what you get here.
Worth seeing for Lee, but still unforgivably wasteful of his talents.
