Dragon Fist (1978)

Lo Wei’s attempts to launch Jackie Chan as the next Bruce Lee was never more apparent than with this schlocky kung fu time-waster; an undemanding slice of mediocrity that takes itself far too seriously. Chan plays a downhearted student-type eager to avenge his master’s death, defeated at the hands of a rival master. There is also something to do with the criminal Wei Clan smuggling and pillaging, but the overall lack of excitement makes this one an effort to follow. Jackie is, of course, the only saving grace, but the film is undoubtedly a waste of his talents.
