All international baddie Lee Hung (Lo Lieh) really wants is the Kung Fu finger book by Bruce Lee because ... well, because he wants it. He is a black belter already, and my guess is that's the only thing he can aspire for when it comes to martial arts. He suspects the finger book to be with Bruce Wong (Bruce Le), former student of the late Bruce Lee, so he leaves nothing untried to get the book out of Bruce, including having his friends attacked, kidnapping his sister (Yuan Man-Tzu) and girlfriend (Nora Miao Ke-Hsiu) and the like, but nothing seems to lead anywhere - because you see, Bruce has no idea where the finger book actually is (and at one point believes it in Lee Hung's possession already even). But alarmed by Lee Hung's actions, Bruce and friends eventually start to look for the finger book to ... pretty much have it - and eventually they find it in an old stone shack under a mattress, too. And now Bruce trains finger Kung Fu like a crazyman and eventually tracks down Lee Hung to finger ... erm, fight him to the death ...


In a way, Bruce's Deadly Fingers feels almost like martial arts porn - oh, not that it's a dirty movie in any sense, but like your middle-of-the-road porn flick's story is just a hanger to show you a series of sex scenes, this one treats fight scenes the same way, only poorly setting them up and often just throwing the characters into fights with feeble explanations given later. Also the story makes little sense, is silly, and tests the audience's suspension of disbelief - and being martial arts-centric as it is, it's only a catalyst for even more fights.

And all that said, that's exaclty what makes Bruce's Deadly Fingers extremely charming in a nostalgic way: It's grindhouse chop socky at its best, primal and silly, but fast-paced and action centered, with plenty of things to laugh at but also secretly fall in love with.

For sure not a film for everyone - but vintage genre fans with a predilection for the trashy won't want to miss up on this one!
