Fist of Fury is considered by many to be the best of all of the Bruce Lee films.
The story is set in Shanghai in 1908, Bruce Lee plays the martial arts expert who unleashes a “fist of fury” in a one-man vendetta against the gang that kills his master and terrorises his former school. Non-stop action and stunning fight sequences are the hallmarks of Bruce Lee films, and this one weaves them all into a classic tale of a man putting his life on the line to save his friends.
A selection of vintage original trailers for other martial arts classics will precede this screening.
