YesAsia Editorial Description

Bruce Lee's big screen break came in director Lo Wei's The Big Boss, a wildly successful kung-fu film that made the legendary screen icon into a powerful box-office force! Chang Chow An (Bruce Lee) is a reluctant warrior who promises his mother to leave his violent days behind him. Chang goes to live with his uncle and gets a job at the local ice factory. But something is amiss at the factory. Chang's co-workers begin to mysteriously disappear, and Chang himself is distracted by the evil "Big Boss", who uses power, money and women to direct Chang's attentions elsewhere. But when Chang learns once and for all that the Big Boss is a bad man, it's time to let the dragon out of the bottle! It all comes down to knock-down kung-fu showdowns featuring Bruce Lee's trademark power and charismatic flair! Known to American audiences as Fists of Fury, The Big Boss is required viewing by anyone who considers themself a Bruce Lee fan.

Better presentation of mediocre film Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
This Kam & Ronson edition of director Lo Wai's "The Big Boss" gives a chance to see the film in a version close to its original presentation. The Cantonese soundtrack (with good English subtitles) is much preferable to the bad dubs I'd previously seen. The image quality is vastly improved; the movie looks clear and sharp. Oddly, some of the soundtrack music is not original. Several times we hear a clip of music ripped off from Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album, which could not have been included in the movie's original soundtrack because the film came out two years before the Pink Floyd album was recorded!

Technical improvements aside, watching this movie remains mostly a tedious experience. Bruce Lee comes to Thailand in search of work. His uncle introduces him to James Tien, who works at an ice-making factory at which the uncle hopes Bruce may be employed. Unbeknownst to Bruce, James, and the uncle, the factory is a front for a drug-running operation. Bruce is an onlooker for a few early fight scenes because he swore to his mother that he wouldn't fight. Forty-five minutes into the movie, an ice factory thug breaks the jade necklace that Bruce had received from his mother and Bruce finally explodes in fury and beats a crew of cheap hoods.

Instead of firing Bruce, the factory manager appoints him to be the new factory foreman and tries to buy him off with a lavish meal, booze, and a lovely hooker's charms. Bruce's co-workers assume that he has sold them out. Bruce seeks to prove his merit by uncovering what has become of five of their crew who have vanished after meetings with ice factory owner Han Ying Chieh. Bruce first confronts four attack dogs, a fight which risibly consists of images of Bruce and the dogs flying through the air. After the dogs, Bruce takes down a band of the owner's cheap flunkies, then faces off against Han Ying Chieh in the film's most iconic moments.

Bruce's acting is unsubtle but passable. Lam Ching Ying appears as one of the ice factory workers. Nora Miao is given almost nothing to do. Maria Yi makes a nice impression as a kind of kid sister to the factory workers who is sweet on Bruce. The fight choreography is spotty, nowhere near as thrilling as the fights in "Fist of Fury". It is fair to say that the only real reason to watch "The Big Boss" is to see Bruce in action and, unfortunately, what the film mostly gives us is Bruce in inaction.
