unusually boring Brucesplotaion flick
For those of you do not know what "bruceplotaion" is; it's a type of movie sub-genre, that exists for the soul purpose, of cashing in on Bruce Lee's death; its pretty tasteless when you get right down to it, but at least they have lots of hard-hitting, fast-paced Kung Fu action, to keep them entertaining, at least they're supposed to. The problem with this feature, is that it spends way too much time on it's generic plot (good Chinese vs. evil Japanese), and characters we don't care about, with some really lame comic-relief, thrown in to make it more tedious. This is not to say that there is no good action in this movie, as the second-half contains some good pretty good fighting, but Kung Fu fans have seen far better.
