The Big Boss

The Big Boss ★★★½

Finally cracked into the Criterion Bruce Lee box set tonight. The Big Boss is flawed but thrilling, and Lee is so clearly larger than life he couldn’t help but become a huge star after this. Some funny moments, and bloodier than I expected, but still in a classic martial arts movie way. 

And if you’re looking to sustain your secret heroin smuggling business you obviously shouldn’t routinely murder your employees. It’s just going to raise questions and probably lead to a boss fight to the death on your front lawn. This is economics 101.
