Overview

One of the best action films starring the legendary Bruce Lee, this movie features the martial artist as Chen Chen, who returns to his former school in early 20th century Shanghai when he learns that his beloved instructor has been murdered. While probing the man's death and seeking vengeance, Chen discovers that a drug smuggling operation, a rival school, and simmering racial tensions between Chinese and Japanese locals are factors in the nefarious dealings at his alma mater and in his master's slaying. Chen's got his work cut out for him as he takes on assassins of both races, and even a towering Russian. Variously titled The Chinese Connection and The Iron Hand, Fist of Fury features stunt work by a young Jackie Chan who served as Lee's double. The film was remade two and a half decades later as Fist of Legend 1999, with Jet Li in the role of Chen.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Genevieve Williams
The second film from martial arts superstar Bruce Lee, The Chinese Connection (sometimes called Fist of Fury, leading to some confusion with Lee's debut film of the same title) stands head and shoulders above the earlier film in terms of script, acting, and direction. As Chen Chen, a young student at a martial arts school in Japan-occupied Shanghai in the early 20th century, Lee is spectacular, playing his scenes with an enraged intensity that's sometimes overwhelming. The plot hinges on the mysterious death of the school's master, the responsibility for which Chen traces to a rival Japanese Bushido school in town. Fights ensue, with Chen taking on just about everyone single-handedly in some stunning sequences that are still effective 30 years later. The film addresses the more-than-strained relations between Chinese and Japanese at the time, exacerbated by the institutional racism of the latter, head-on, and Chen's rage at his teacher's murder becomes the suppressed fury of an entire culture. Directed by kung-fu filmmaker extraordinaire Lo Wei, with a young Jackie Chan in extra/stunt double role. Choosing from the many video editions available is an iffy proposition due to some truly horrible dubbing; get the DVD instead, which features newly translated English subtitles.

    This is one of the best kung fu video of all time.

    I beleave if Bruce Lee was alive he would be making more movies now than ever. when I was looking around when I was in NYC I saw Bruce Li in The Chinese Connection pt 2 I truly think Bruce Li played a good part in this move as Bruce Lee brother.

    Bruce Lee at his Best.

    This movie features Bruce Lee as Chen Chen, who returns to his former school where he learns that his instructor has been murdered. While probing the man's death and seeking vengeance, Chen discovers that a drug smuggling operation, a rival school, and simmering racial tensions between Chinese and Japanese locals are factors in the dealings at his alma mater and in his master's slaying. Chen's got his work cut out for him as he takes on assassins.
