Way of the Dragon 2 (1979) Poster

A classic tribute to a legendary Kung-Fu master. The high-powered action and deadly fistfights don't let up for a moment. When all the chips are down, the Dragon Master will prevail.

| This is my strenght!
In 1972. Bruce Lee made great martial arts classic called "Way Of The Dragon". In 1978. someone decided to make …, well, let's say … a sequel. And what a movie did they make! Is it great? Original? Filled with action? Hell, No!!! They created the sickest martial arts comedy that is so incoherent, pointless and confusing that'll left you with your mouth wide open and big question mark hanging above your head! But, is it funny? Man, it's hilarious!!! I don't know if they intended to make a comedy, but if they did … then I bow my head with respect. I mean, can you imagine this scene: A guy is walking down the street and becomes surrounded with a bunch of gang-looking man. So, the leader of the gang says: "Are you Dragon Hung?" – The Guy: "So, what if I am?! The Leader: "Agh, fix him!!!", and they started a fight. What the hell was that???!! Or, some guy walks into a temple and asks if someone saw his brother, and the Buddhist priest attacks him!!! Why?!? Well, to show his strenght by flapping his hands through the air! No, really, I'm not joking! Also, many scenes were cut in the middle of the action. Some dude gets hit in a bar, he swings back … and completely different scene. You are not going to understand anything: Who is Dragon Jung or Dragon Hung; who is whose brother; what do these bad guys want or why are they fighting anyway?! And fights, that is a story for itself. Silly moves, crazy sounds and finger snaps (you'll see!). Even names of the actors are some mystery: Bruce Lea, Bruce Liu … and so on. The only familiar face is Bolo Yeung, who plays a guy called Bull, "who is strong as an elephant" (actual line from the movie!). Dubbing, story, sets, characters, … it just keeps getting better! So, what's positive about this movie? It has practically killed me! I laughed and laughed, then cried, then laughed again; than pinched myself in disbelief and continued laughing … It wasn't just funny, it was hysterical!!! Really, stomach-hurting-funny material! All you have to do is to compare this to a normal movie and you must laugh. Trust me, this one you'll never forget! Ten stars, just for being made.
