A very good friend of mine once had a 'fist of fury'. Every time he'd go and shake me by the hand, he'd inadvertently crack my bloody rib in the process. Painful story that. Very painful and completely untrue. Just like this sequel that didn't need to me made. One Directed by Lo Wei; and Starring: Jackie Chan and Nora Miao. This version was released in 1980 and lasted for 80-minutes.

link for the review]. (2) This project was a deliberate attempt made by the director, Lo Wei, to manufacture Jackie Chan into becoming the next Bruce Lee. (3) Jackie Chan starred in the original version of this movie. He was one of the Jing Wu pupils fighting in the court yard battle scene. And he also doubled for the final martial-arts master that Bruce kicked through the wall. (4) Chinese actress, Nora Miao, was the first person Bruce Lee kissed on camera. Moreover, she starred with him on 'The Big Boss', 'Fist of Fury', and 'Way of the Dragon' [click on link for the reviews]. (5) There were two versions of this film produced. The original 114 minute version was made in Mandarin and released in 1976. And a 1980 80 minute English dubbed version released because of Jackie's then escalating career. This one was the 80 minute dubbed version.

(7) Just like Lo Wei and Nora Miao, Yin-chieh Han starred with Bruce Lee on 'The Big Boss' and 'Fist of Fury'. He played a villain though. Not the director or the love interest. (8) This movie was ill received by the fans, and was heralded as the first of many 'flops' for Jackie Chan's early film career. It only made $456,787.20
