  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In "Enter The Dragon," Bruce Lee, in his last complete film, stars as a secret agent drawn into combat with a clever criminal who uses a martial arts academy to mask a career of international crime.

DVD Picture:
This new anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits exceptional improvements over the previously released DVD, which was riddled with source element artifacts. Serious anomalies which were present on the previous edition are absent on this new DVD, though minor artifacts are still noticed. While the picture can still appear poorly contrasted with muddy colors and images that often lack clarity and definition, the picture has a satisfying, clean appearance. The picture can appear overly dark, but shadow delineation is acceptable. The black-and-white sequences feature a generally good grayscale with good contrast. Edge enhancement and pixelization are minimal, but some details are noticed shimmering at times. If you are a fan of Enter The Dragon, you will not be disappointed with this DVD. (Suzanne Hodges)
