Bruce Lee plays a martial-arts expert determined to help capture the narcotics dealer whose gang was responsible for the death of his sister. Lee enters a kung fu competition in an attempt to fight his way to the dealer's headquarters with the help of some friends.

Enter the Dragon, the first Hollywood martial arts film, is definitely one of the most influential, establishing Bruce Lee as an iconic figure for future martial artists, starting a kung fu film craze that ran throughout the 1970s. It has also been re-popularized today in similar strains. Video games, such as the infamous "Mortal Kombat", have emulated its plot and style. In fact, so much has been lifted by future films and other forms of media, that when one looks back at it from a modern perspective, it seems like just another typical kung fu movie, rather unfairly. Most of the action follows three main protagonists, all traveling to a fortified, remote island owned by Han. Bruce Lee plays Lee, working as an undercover intelligence agent seeking revenge for his dead sister, who killed herself to keep from getting taken by Han's men. John Saxon (Black Christmas, Joe Kidd) plays gambling addict, Roper, who escapes the mob boss out to collect on a late payment. American karate champ Jim Kelly (Black Belt Jones, Black Samurai) is also out to escape, hunted by the cops who were harassing him. While there, it is discovered that Han has more going on than just his martial arts tournament, as drugs and prostitutes run rampant over the place, drawing the eye of the authorities surrounding the island who want evidence of wrongdoing before coming in. The main reason to see Enter the Dragon isn't for the story, direction, or anything one normally associates with the worth of your typical movie; you watch it to see the greatest martial arts figure in the history of cinema, Bruce Lee, at the peak of his career. This is a film conceived of solely to introduce Bruce to an American audience as something more than Kato from "The Green Hornet" fame. He would quickly become the premier action hero for a new decade. Though he would die less than a month before the official release, the impact of his performance in the film catapulted him into becoming a household name, almost inseparable in the minds of millions from martial arts for decades. - Courtesy, Vince Leo, Qwipster
