Glad I waited to see the original version of this, not the by all accounts ill-conceived re-edit from the late 1970's. The story is unoriginal and has some serious lapses of logic and plausibility, but as long as you're not too fussy about these things it's quite an entertaining film thanks to Jackie's performance. His acting isn't brilliant but his charisma is already apparent, and his physicality is completely compelling. It's a real shame audiences didn't warm to him here, as he already shows his own style that's a lot more acrobatic and yet also more 'real' than Bruce Lee or his clones, and a pleasure to watch.
