"The movie "Fist of Unicorn" is complete garbage, badly made and rottenly acted (at one point, there is a stuttering duel of all things). The fight scenes are not very impressive, despite choreography by Bruce Lee. In the English version, Bruce Lee is supposedly showing off to Unicorn Chan in the opening sequence but, wouldn't you know, they use a double! Unicorn himself is not much of an actor, but he is a graceful fighter.
What is really pitiful is the DVD itself: there is no trailer for the film, despite user comments, only trailers for "Bruce Lee: The Man, The Myth" (shown twice!) and other Bruce Lee rip-offs (even a trailer for a Ron Van Clief film). The documentary of stunt men who knew Bruce is translated by someone with a lazy drawl for a voice - you'll think it was intended as a joke. The only plus is the 72 photos of Bruce shown - for that, buy a book of pictures of the martial-arts master but not this film."

"I am happy and sad to see the release of this `Lost Classic'.
Happy since it is finally available and sad since it's not a good film!
Complaining aside,the whole DVD is well worth the purchase price.
It includes the following-
2 Versions of the film-English and Mandarin.The English is a Full Screen Version and the Mandarin is Widescreen.
There are different openings to the film on both,and the English version has two clips of Bruce Lee not shown in the Mandarin Version.
Original Trailer-Quite a rarity.It has unseen footage of Bruce Lee on set.
Last Day of Bruce Lee Documentary-an interesting 20 minute piece which is narrated and hosted by Bruce's Hong Kong girlfriend Betty Ting Pei(it's dubbed in English).There's a load of footage of Bruce at a party with the cast of the film,and then funeral footage.This alone is worth the price of the DVD.
Photo Gallery-an excellent compilation of Bruce Lee's life in 1972.I haven't seen these photos before and the captions are great.Bruce Lee Historian George Tan has done an amazing job.
Fight Scenes interview-this 20 minute piece has Bruce's stuntmen discussing how Bruce Lee put together the famous Enter the Dragon fights,plus anecdotes about Fist of Unicorn and the man himself.Cover artwork is the best images of Bruce to date.
Also recommend `Death by Misadventure-the mysterious life of Bruce Lee'.See my review on this masterpiece.Overall a great DVD piece,minus the actual film(s)."
