Not only my favorite Jet Li film, but also one of my favorite movies of any genre ever. It goes so far beyond being a simple remake of "Fist of Fury"; Jet really makes the role his own. My only complaint is not about the movie, but the DVD. I bought the DD release despite already owning a dvd version of the movie because I was hoping for some cool special features that I didn't already have, maybe better subtitles or a different dub. But Dragon Dynasty's version is almost identical to the "Jet Li collection release from a few years back. The DVD is sorely lacking in extras, but the film itself is just damn-near perfect.
What about me?
I'm in England and want the title too, so far I can't find it.
Even the US importers are out of stock.
Jet Li Rocks!!
I can't wait to buy this movie. I already have an older version of fist of legend, but this is off the hook! I can't believe how many special features there are on this dvd.
Such an amazing film
For those of us that bought earlier DVD releases, the Dragon Dynasty version has so much more to love. Top of the line transfer with so many special features how could you not buy this version? To all the new fans: you win. This is a movie that needs to be in your collection today!
Thank you sooooo much, Bey and DD!!!
Thank you so much
Finally the long awaited released has arrived. This film is simply has the most groundbreaking choreography by Yuen Woo Ping .
Thank you so much, Dee Dee!
IM BUYING THIS NO DOUBT!!!
Jet Li's best work
I am so excited that DD will be releasing this gem digitally remastered. I am eager to see a quality transfer along with the extras. I was hoping to see a Jet Li or Billy Chow interview. With that being said, the fights and action choreography were top notch. Yuen Wo Ping, Jet Li, and Billy Chow were on top of their game. Thanks DD.
One of Jet Li's best film
Great movie with Jet Li doing more grounded fighting although wires are still used to enhance some moves. It all depends if Dragon Dynasty does this movie justice in terms of picture, audio and subtitles quality.
Sweet! And thanks for Kurata Yasuaki on the special features!!
AWESOME! AWESOME! Thank you for having an interview with Kurata Yasuaki! He is an fantastic with his martial arts skill!
And I'm so glad that DD is releasing this movie with UNCUT version! :) Thank you!
This movie was brilliant and it is a must-see!
This movie was highly anticipated by all kung fu lovers and this movie is a "must have". I can´t wait for its release. Thank you DragonDynasty for bringing old kung fu movies alive.
The end-all quintessetial Martial Arts film of cinematic history.
This has yet to be topped. Everything involved from Yuen Wo-ping's stunning choreography, to the gorgeous set design, to Jet Li's stellar career defining performance as Chen... Dragon Dynasty has FINALLY released what has until now only existed in DVD travesties of bootleg editions and poorly dubbed, unrestored, re-cut releases. Martial arts fans and just cinephiles in general rejoice!!! This is the moment we've been waiting for! Movies in general don't come much better than this!!!
Cover art is Just ok, I've seen worse. (Fatal Contact)
I have the "English Dubbed" Version at home,and I kind of got bored with it, So September needs to hurry up and get here so I can buy the "Dragon Dynasty" version of this movie just to get rid of the one I have.
Just Awesome !
If you like Kung Fu films you will like this. It's one of the best starring Jet Li with great cast and brilliant action !
Please make this availbale on Blu-Ray !!!!
YES!!! LI's BEST PICTURE OF ALL TIME!!!!
MAN DD FIRST TAI CHI MASTER, NOW THIS. FIST OF LEGEND HAS TO BE ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MARTIAL ARTS MOVIES OF ALL TIME. I WANTED TO DO A BACK FLIP OFF MY ROOF WHEN I HEARD THIS WAS COMING OUT. WHATS NEXT DD DRUNKEN MASTER 1 & 2?? I SURE HOPE SO
jet li rocks in every of his movies.
Thank you Dragon Dynasty for one of the best. I would like to say its about time, but I'm happy that its finally here.
this one of my favorite movies
Perhaps the greatest martial arts film of all time!
The definitive Jet Li movie. This is the perhaps the only film that truly showcase Jet Li's maximum potential as an on screen fighter. Even though the story mimics that of the classic Bruce Lee film, this version is actually better. This is also easily Yuen Wo Ping's best work. If you are a martial arts movie fan, you can't miss this.
Not to sound like a hopeless nerd, but I've been waiting for this DVD for years now. This is THE movie to check out for anyone who's a fan of Jet, Woo Ping, or quality martial arts movies at all. Speed, creativity, and pure intensity propel some of the highest quality fights ever recorded in a film.
the best jet li movie
This is one of the best movies ive seen and definitely the best jet li movie, fights are very convincing, fastpaced and intense. Fist of Legend looks more realistic than pretty much all of his hollywood films.
a great masterpiece of martial arts.
Now can u please give us the jackie chan classics, snake and crane art of shaolin,dragon fist,drunken master 1 and drunken master 2, the directors cut for medallion please.Whatg about young master fearless hyena wheels on meals and last the great dragon's forever.
Wait for the Blu-Ray
Fist of Legend is one of my all time favourites (the others are Tai Chi Master and Iron Monkey). I would not hesitate for a moment to buy this except it is in NTSC format. Even anamorphic PAL would have been ok. I'm gonna wait for the Blu-Ray.
Thank God...or should I say Dragon Dynasty...
....we will no longer have to put up with the dubbed version ! Very excited !
Jet Li's Finest Movie
This is one of my all-time favorite movies, and has the best fighting sequences of any movie I've ever seen. This is my go-to movie whenever I try introducing someone to the martial arts genre. Jet Li is badass.
I cannot wait for this release!
I've been so desperate to get this I even transferred an old VHS copy to DVD!
One of the best MA films ever made!
One of Jet Li's best
When I started to watch Jet Li's first original movies. Fist Of Legend surprised me a lot. The action, stunts he made was just unbelievable. I though the next best action hero in USA
If this movie is not on your list of the top 3 martial arts movies of all time, then you don't know martial arts movies. This is a huge relief to have a decent release, esp for those of us who bought the shady, non-anamorphic, burned-in subs version. Buy it now! I'm buying two copies, just in case.
Inspiring...Exciting...Masterful...Just a treasure for any martial arts inthusiest and fan.
This movie has ranked at the top of my list. There were so many messages weaved into this story of prejudice and martial arts. It really tapped into the spirit of the arts. From the purists of the arts to the adaptive, it showed what the spirit of attitude and determination could do. Jet Li made the part believable as Chen, a man with dreams. A man without prejudice standing for his principles and beliefs. He fought for his land, he fought for his pride, he fought for the ultimate ideal; peace. He was willing to turn his back on everything, including his surrogate family for his peace of mind. But when it came time to make a stand and protect all he cherished.
The martial arts in the movie was masterful. Crisp and precise movements highlighted the choreography. The story was as solid as they come even though it wasn't complex. And the philosophy behind the actions complimented the tale making it an incredible film to watch over and over again. The climax was pulse pounding. The scenery was beautiful. And the detail was immaculate. This movie could never be duplicated or replaced as a classic. It will forever be timeless placing Jet Li in a realm of immortality for his work.
Definitely Li's Best!
However, I picked this up without paying much attention. The versions I got only has one disc, and no specials. Is there two versions from Dragon Dynasty?
JETS BEST !!!!
If you are a TRUE JET LI fan, then you know about this movie. One of Yuen Wo-ping's best movies!A MUST SEE for any MARTIAL ARTS movie fan!! ENJOY !!!
Jet Li's greatest work to date
I've waited for a long time for this DVD to come out and I must say it was worth the wait!!! I purchased it yesterday (09\10\08) and have seen it twice, Thank you Dragon Dynasty for releasing it, you guys put out a quaity product. I currently own ten of your DVD's and this was a great addition to my collection.
the film is awesome and shows how good jet li is.
JET LI is so awesome in this movie no downtime just action and fighting.I have the original and somewhere BRUCE LEE is smiling and applauding this remake.
one of the greatest kung-fu film ever made
I believe that this release will be the one that kung-fu fans all over the world have awaited for.
Great Job, Dragon Dynasty
Great transfer and sound a vast improvement over initial release.
It is nice to see the Weinsteins re-releasing some of the films that they butchered upon initial release. Now lets see re-issues of ALL the Asian films the recut and released dubbed only in the late nineties and early 2000's. Jet Li's entire catalogue... especially The Legend of Fong Sai Yuk and Bodyguard from Bejing and Drunken Master 2. Especially Drunken Master 2. It would also be great if the aquired Jackie's butchered catalogue from New Line and released uncut versions of stuff like Rumble in the Bronx and First strike. I don't remember who effed up Supercop New Line or Dimension but I'd like to see it reissued under its real title Police Story 3: Supercop without that terriblely generic hip hop soundtrack. Dragon Dynasty has made a good start but there is still a long way to go to make up for how badly Asian cinema was chopped up and released dubbed only in those first few years after Rumble in the Bronx brought Jackie to the states. I don't care so much about special features I just want to see uncut versions of the films with original language audio as an option.
Jet Li's best. Period.
This is one of the best Kung Fu movies made. Don't question it. The fight scenes are out standing! And the choreography is blinding in it's brilliance. If you haven't seen this one, buy it and prepare to be amazed.
One complaint, and its against Dragon Dynasty. MORE MANDARIN LANGUAGE TRACKS, PLEASE! I don't speak Cantonese but I do speak Mandarin, so please, please, please.
Jet Li's at his classic best it just may be better than Fearless !! - Well - maybe a close second!!
Big fan of Jet Li's work I have several of his DVD's and this will be a welcomed addition to my collection. Thank you Dragon Dynasty for bring it to the public, I have many of your DVD's (10) and will continue to purchase your quality product, thanks again.
This is my favorite jet li movie of all time!!
the fight between jet li and his girlfriend's uncle blind folded DAYUM!that was tight!
men Jet li is too much, He finishes work, i can't wait to buy this movie
IAs soon as I get the money im expecting to my mastercard i'll just get a copy.
Here in my country nigeria, if someone does a great thing we say he's too much, Jet Li is "TOO MUCH...."
Hot Tamale!! This is greatness!
Wow, I am floored to see this out. I hope I can find it in my area. One of my all time faves, a great remake for sure, but a great movie in its own right too. Everyone pulls out all the stops and it makes for one hell of a movie. Thanks DD, thanks a ton!
Huge congrats to everyone involved in making this DVD
When I first heard about DD, I was skeptical. And, like most skeptics, I was more than happy to be proven wrong.
In short: the movie is awesome, the extras are awesome, Bey's commentary was awesome, and DD is awesome.
I cannot say "thank you" enough times for what DD is doing. While I liked my status as the geek who owned all these out-of-print DVDs, I honestly don't have a problem buying them again if the care put into DD's release of Fist of Legend is indicative of their releases.
Again, GREAT JOB to all involved.
Oh... the movie? Best Hong Kong movie ever, in my opinion; Jet Li and Yuen Woo-ping at their best, which is better than "best".
A great edition of a great martial arts classic
An amazing martials arts flick, Jet Li in his best performance. Thanx for the spanish subtitles, it's incredible for someone from chile to have the opportunity to see this movies in high quality, with subtitles in our language. I have King Boxer, The One Armed Swordman, 36th Chamber of Shaloin and Police Story from your collection and i am gratefully thankful, because all of them are high quality products. Congratulations
Awesome movie! This DVD however has it's issues.
This is the best this movie has ever looked as far as home video is concerned, it's too bad it's presented with a re-done, god-awful english title sequence. The title of the film (with the flames and the fonts) looks so stereo-typical, like somebody "trying" to give it a Chinese look. The ending is slightly clipped aswell. Apart from those minor disappointments, the bulk of the movie looks and sounds better than ever before.
One good movie
This is one of Jet Li's best
one of the best kung fu ever - no more needs to be said
Thank you for an animorphic transfer of the BEST Jet Li Movie EVER!
This is without a doubt the best Jet Li movie out there. To me, it is possibly the best martial arts film ever. Thank-you Dragon Dynasty for a great transfer of a great movie.
The movie was awesome
I enjoyed the movie. The fighting was great and so were the actors. I just love Jet Li. He is sooo cute.
Excellent Film, poor presentation
Possibly Jet Li's best ever film, this is the shortened version and has poorly translated subtitles. Such a shame as the rest of the set is quite good. Come on DD, raise your standards!!
one of the best matial art film
i have watch this years back. one of the best MA remake or i could say it as a stand alone movie.the fight sequences is the highlight of this classic film........among the hong kong MA, this is a gems, all MA movie lovers should have a piece of this masterpiece.......
The Best Ever!
Jet Li shows off pure skill and style with no wires or fake flying scenes!!!!!!!!!!
GET IT! YOU WONT BE SORRY!
Incredible Action, just needs a Blu-Ray release
Extraordinary fight sequences propel this film to the upper reaches of martial arts cinema. The subtitles need work, hopefully a Blu-Ray release will address this
One of Jet Li's Bests
I saw this on BBC 1 not that long a go.This is my seconded favourite Jet Li film after Once upon a time in China it follows a similar plot to the great Bruce Lee film Fist of Fury. Set in Shanghai in 1937 during the Second Sino-Japanese War.With the last fight scene where Jet uses a belt as a weapon Then a good twisted in the ending.
classic iron fist movie!
vintage jet li
Thank-you DD. First Police Story 1/2, then Tai Chi Master and then the excellent Fist of Legend. One more to go please: Last Hero in China.
Best Film of Jet Li
Jet Li's best ever film, this is real scenes fighting.
This is def one of jets best! the style of fighting really shows jets power as a fighter with very limited wire work. now when r u going to release the shoalin temple trilogy? i want those on dvd sooo bad! come on bey release them!
Jet Li is the best
I have watchd some of his movieS, YET, fist legand is the best "AWESOME".
A MUST-HAVE IN YOUR MOVIE COLLECTION!
I remember when I watched this movie for the first time in my late teens and it blew me away. Ever since I've been looking for, and waiting for the realease of a copy with a decent transfer! I personally prefer more realistic action scenes without the excessive use of wires. Here the action is direct and you can almost feel the punches.
The story is great, (a remake on the Bruce Lee classic Fist Of Fury), but I think the story is not as black and white in Fist Of Legend which adds depth to the drama.
Jet Li IS Chen Zhen and Billy Chau is superb in the role of Japanese general Fujita. All of the cast are doing a great job and honestly: I can go on and on for hours about how good this movie is so just do yourself a favor and buy it so you can enjoy it too.
Thanks to Dragon Dynasty for delivering great movies in stylish packages. Looking forward to future releases.
One of the best Jet Li films I've ever seen!!!
I've been a Dragon Dynasty and Jet Li fan for a while now and this is one of the best examples of martial arts films ever to surface. A must defenit must see.
Another non-stop action packed movie
Jet Li does a real good job of keeping you on your toes. It is a classic tale of love, racism, action, and history. This movie is in my Jet Li video collection under classics.
A must have for any true martial artist fan!!
Fist of Legend is hands down one of the greatest movie peroid.Now I am not just talking within the martial art genre but overall in general. Bruce Lee gave us Fist of Fury and blessed us with a mouth-waterng cake and Jet Li came along and added to icing to complete this fine serving and satisfy our appetite. Fist of Legend is packed with a story that captivates you and does not let go until the final credits run and even then it leaves an urge to rewind and watch it all over again. I am pleased to have this cult-classic in my collection and Jet Li gives a top-form performance which blows the typical acting regarding a martial artist turned actor out of the waters. On a scale of 1 to 5 on the rating meter i give it a 6 so you tell me how much I enjoy the flick?
Incredible, one of the best trailers ever created so far. I can't wait to see the movie.
I'm a big martial arts fan, and Jet LI is one of my favorite actors. He's about as famous as Bruce Lee is. From me to him, tell him to keep up the outstanding work. I would also love to train under him, and learn to be as fast, and agile as he is. He's the best!
Far the best of all JET LI movies Fist of Legend Congrats
I have watch FIST OF LEGEND like a hundred times it simply is the best, Jet Li is one of favorite actor of all times. keep the good work going.
i think this film is jet li's best of all time
I have watched this movie so many times, simply because of its great fights...I'm one of jet li's biggest fans.
JET LI AT HIS VERY BEST!!!!!!!!!!
THE STORY LINE, THE ACTION, THE MOVIE, NUF SAID!
great movie, but simply a re-make
This was a great, great movie, and it had fantastic fight scenes, but the only thing I didn't like was that it is basically a re-make of fists of fury. I think that they should have made it its own movie with a new story line, and I am a huge Jet Li fan, but no one, NO ONE, will ever be as good as Bruce Lee. All in all, I was very happy with the movie, but that was the only problem. Keep coming out with these movies Dragon Dynasty, and you will make a fortune!!!
the film is great.
i think jet li is the best fighter yet that came along since bruce lee has died.
