No Enter the Dragon, but fairly entertaining.
Bruce Lee's first film, The Big Boss - Like Enter the Dragon, it isn't a good film, though Bruce Lee is good IN it, which is probably why we should be sad Bruce died so young. He never got to make some really good and well-produced action films. The Chinese dub has intrusive music and terribly timed sound effects which they fix in the English dub, but at the cost of Bruce's trademark "intimidation cooing". Overall, I think while the sound is technically better, it makes the film flatter.
The best part is when he punches someone in the throat and it looks like their head is about to explode.
