Wait, you have seen it, right? Bruce Lee as a wunderkind martial artist tapped to infiltrate an opium smuggling operation that runs a lethal martial arts competition on the side? (Repeat: drug dealers who hire staff and provide catering for bloodsports just ’cause.) Influenced Jackie Chan, the Mortal Combat series, Tarantino, and, oh yeah, every other martial arts thing ever?! No? You know, when there’s an opportunity, one should not hit. It should hit all by itself. Look, it’s from the movie—just … go. You have offended the Shaolin Temple.
