This movie is definitely Bruceploitation, but NOT of Bruce Lee, but of Bruce Le! I know that sounds hard to believe, but it's true. The box tries to sell the movie as a Bruce Le vehicle. It has a big picture of Bruce Le on the front and on the back it says "Starring BRUCE LE", but he's isn't even in the movie. The movie is directed by Joseph Velasco who has directed a few Bruce Le movies, I guess he couldn't get Bruce Le for this one, and the movie really suffers because of it. Bruce Lei needs more practice in front of the mirror getting his Bruce Lee moves down.
Bruce Lei plays Indra a kung fu student who's teacher is killed by the mysterious Cobra. Indra and the teacher's daughter move the big city to start a new life together. Now married they are expecting a kid, and Indra doesn't have a job. While out walking Indra saves this guy from being attacked and the guy sends him to the docks for a job. In order to get the job Indra has to fight all these guys to prove himself, and of course he does. Indra's new boss turns out to be a smuggler and all round bad guy. Indra and his friend talk about quitting and are overheard by the boss's henchmen. Thugs kidnap Indra's friend and lure him out of the house. Other thugs try to kidnap Indra's wife and daughter, but the two are killed. Indra finds out what happened from his friend and the two set off for revenge.
This movie is pretty boring except for the last half hour where Bruce Lei goes looking to kick ass. Whenever he kills a bad guy it seems they get stabbed or impaled and it's all bloody. There is a lot of squirting blood which makes the movie almost watchable. In one scene these bad guys run over Indra in a Jeep and Indra hangs onto the roof of the Jeep. So to get Indra off the roof of the Jeep the guy crashes into a tree. Now that's brilliant! Also after Indra kills this guy, his identical twin shows up and Indra tells him, "Since you were both born at the same time, you can both die at the same time." That's a classic line. Now Indra has to fight the boss, but as we learned earlier in the movie, the boss doesn't like cold water because of his arthritis in his legs. Luckly the boss has waterfront property and Indra lures him into the water. I was hoping his knees would explode, but instead they just seized up and he drowned. Is this the end?? Nooo!! The Cobra who killed Indra's teacher shows up and turns out to be the guy Indra saved from the gang and the start and gave him the job. Whoa, what a plot twist! They fight and when its looks like Indra kills the Cobra, then Cobra jumps out of the water and grabs Indra. THE END. What kinda ending is that?! Who won, who died, who writes this crap.
Well the movie is pretty slow and boring except the first ten minutes and last half hour. I'm not saying they're good, I'm just saying they're better than the rest.
