Exit the Dragon, Enter the Tiger

The Dragon sends The Tiger on a fantastic mission: “If I die, find out why!” In one of the great Bruceploitation brain busters, (a fake) Bruce Lee commands his disciple (Bruce Li) to investigate the mystery surrounding his death. But the Tiger quickly meets forceful resistance from the vicious drug rings and fast-fingered karate killers who will do anything to hide the truth behind the master’s murder. Featuring top class fights, excellent widescreen photography, nods to the classics (hello, yellow track suit) and footage from (the real) Bruce’s funeral, Exit the Dragon, Enter The Tiger packs a wallop as must-see martial arts mayhem!
