Fist of LegendDirector: Gordon Chan, Jet Li, Paul Chiang, Yasuaki Kurata
Jet Li stars in this historical Hong Kong action film, as Chen Zhen, a Chinese student in Japan in the 1920s. When his master is killed during the Japanese occupation of China, he returns to avenge his teacher's death. Back in China, he finds himself caught in the escalating racial tensions between the Chinese and the Japanese. The martial arts sequences in this 1994 film are handled more seriously than flashy acrobatics of other kung fu epics of the time and are perhaps a better showcase for Li's awe-inspiring fighting abilities. This story is inspired heavily by Bruce Lee's classic Fists of Fury.

Probably the best Jet Li film to date. Unbelieveble action sequences and they are long not short like some other movies. Great movie.
This movie, a remake of Bruce Lee's Fists of Fury, is fantastic. One of Jet Li's best, I highly recommend it to anyone who likes martial arts movies. In fact I recommend it to anyone who likes movies. Jet Li uses a hard style in this that looks fantastic; and there is very little wire work, which can slow down some movies. Some of the best fight scenes that I have ever seen are in this movie. Such as Li's disposal of an entire dojo of students.
The best Jet Li film ever, great Jet Li starter movie.
This is Jet Li's BEST movie! It has the best action scenes.
This is Li's best work, and one of the best martial arts films of all time. However, this is a remake of Bruce Lee's ''The Chinese Connection, '' not ''Fists of Fury,'' as the above reviews stated. Watch the two and you will see.
This movie has some of the best fight scenes I have ever seen. This is definently Jet Li's best movie to date. It is a Remake of Fists of Fury with Bruce Lee. The fight scenes are so crazy you just have to love it, a must for martial arts fans.
Jet li's Best film ever! His skills are beautifully exhibited in this film and ALL the fight scenes are meticulous and perfectly done...a very impressive film indeed!
I didn't have high hopes for this subtitled movie, but I was quite impressed. The racial conflict and tension added more engaging elements to the traditional fighting nature. The fight scene with the Japanese master was unforgettable!
