On the set of his latest film, Bruce Lee tells his best friend David the Tiger (Bruce Li) that he is receiving mysterious phonecalls and fears for his life ... and a few days later, he turns up dead, having died under mysterious circumstances - which is of course also a good excuse for the filmmakers to include massive (and well-known) footage of Bruce Lee's funeral.

The Tiger just refuses to believe that Bruce died a natural death, and together with his journalist buddy George he starts to investigate ... and soon has a lead on actress Suzy Yang, in whose appartment Bruce died and who is since hounded by the baddies, and through her, the Tiger soon has a lead on Fei Lung, who is in cahoots with some criminal organisation on which Suzy Yang apparently has a revealing tape which mustn't get into the hands of the police ...

But when the Tiger faces Fei Lung and his buddies all at once, he is beaten to a pulp, and to top it all off, Suzy Yang is kidnapped. With the help of  George and his girlfriend Kai, the Tiger regains his health, only to go after the organisation again, and soon have a first showdown with the organisation's big boss the Baron (Chang Yi). The Tiger neither succeeds in defeating the Baron nor in freeing Suzy Yang, but somehow he gets his hands on the tape, and has George and Kai turn it over to the police while he receives a call for help from Suzy and walks into what's obviously a trap. And while he has to fight a female opponent in a local stadium, the baddies close in on Kai and George, killing him and raping her - alas too late, the tape is already with the police.

Ultimately, the Baron has Kai kidnapped as well and lures the Tiger to the beach for a final showdown - in which the Tiger gets rid of all of Baron's henchies rather easily, then uses the upcoming tide to defeat the Baron as well by having him run into his own blade (yes, the Baron always wears a sword with him, concealed in a walking stick).

 

Exit the Dragon, Enter the Tiger is one of these films taking place in a parallel world, or at least parallel Hong Kong, where pretty much every room is plastered with Bruce Lee posters, everyone wearing Ray Ben sunglasses can be easily mistaken for Bruce Lee, and noone in Hong Kong has anything else to talk about but Bruce Lee, who seems to be linked with pretty much everything (in this one the baddies wanted to force Bruce Lee to be their drugrunner, and with his help they wanted to flood martial arts schools worldwide with drugs).

If you look beyond this generic weirdness all bruceploitation films have in common, you are left with a pretty routine martial arts/gangster flick with a feeble story and rather mediocre fight scenes (only the final fight between Bruce Li and Chang Yi is really worthwhil). Not really a good film, while by far not as ridiculous (and as exhilarating and entertaining) as many other bruceploitation flicks,but if you like run-of-the-mill 1970's B-martial arts movies, this one is ok I guess.
