Bruce Lee 4K: The Way Of The Dragon
Queen's Film Theatre presents the martial arts classic The Way of the Dragon (1972), starring and directed by Bruce Lee
After the back-to-back triumphs of The Big Boss and Fist of Fury, Bruce Lee was given the chance to write, produce, and direct his third outing as a martial-arts superstar. Returning to QFT in ways of the 4K.
The Way of the Dragon follows our protagonist as he travels from Hong Kong to Rome to help his cousin, whose restaurant is being threatened by a gang of thugs. Used to getting their own way, these ruthless criminals underestimate this young man’s ability and ingenuity, and when they are unable to get rid of him they call upon an international martial arts master, leading to one of cinema’s most iconic clashes.
Reaching new heights of physical virtuosity, Lee unleashes an astonishing display of nunchaku-swinging, fly-kicking mayhem, all culminating in one of his most breathtaking fights: an epic gladiatorial death match with Chuck Norris in the Colosseum.
Screening as part of Bruce Lee 4K, a mini season celebrating the martial arts maestro, featuring four of his best films this June, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary 4K re-release of Enter the Dragon this August.
