Being born within the eighty‘s and being a martial arts fan as a kid, i was usually going to have a tender spot for this movie. I got here throughout it whilst i was handiest small and because the name sounded acquainted (enter the Dragon being my favorite movie on the time). I failed to recognise then that this would be one of the handiest instances it changed into ever proven to my understanding on uk tv. i have never visible it on television considering that, and bestjust recently re-bought the DVD.
The movie is ready a Kung Fu student named “Bruce” Leeroy inexperienced, who wants to reach the final stage, a feat most effective Bruce Lee finished. The final level is completed when you are surronded by way of a mystical glow, displaying you are a true kung fu grasp. Leeroy’s grasp tells him to move and look for a Kung Fu master in New Yor kby the call of Som Dum man. on the same time he has fallen for tune Video presenter Laura Charles who wishes him to be his body defend to assist her from Videogame King Eddie Arcadian.
