Enter The Dragon is just one of those movies that you just CAN'T do a remake of. Bruce Lee is so iconic in that film that you simply can't imagine anybody else in that role. At least it's not a by the numbers remake, but I agree with the blog, why not just have it as an original movie and draw comparisons to it?

Movie Companies love making remakes of movies without realizing what made the originals so great, memorable or special.

Thats very true, movie companies only look for the end result: $$$$$$$$$$

Why would he kick everyone's ass when he could just pull out a .45 and, bang, settle it?


Not too excited to hear about it, but I do want to see it because of Setter. I also agree that it should've just been an original movie.

FUCK YOU!!!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

There ain't no one who can duplicate Bruce Lee (sorry Jason Scott) ... that's like BLASPHEMY. You need Bruce's chinese english to deliver EPIC lines like "I practice the ART OF FIGHTING WITHOUT FIGHTING" ... on top of signature move after signature move.

Don't call it a remake, "an FBI agent who pursues a Shaolin monk into a bloody underworld of martial arts style fight clubs" ...just get inspired.
