so this one is not in the Bruce lee set?
no, it's a Jackie Chan. it's from when the studios did not quite know what to do with him and were trying to make him a tough guy successor to Bruce Lee rather than his more natural comic persona. 88 Films released this in a nice amaray set a while ago also.

it's actually not bad :thumbs:, sort of half serious, half usual Chan, and some of the fight sequences are pretty good, but they almost screw it up by actually doing flashbacks to Bruce Lee in one of the climatic fight. :facepalm:
