I know this ain’t no 50th anniversary, but this is the first time Enter the Dragon has hit Bluray so one would think that this would be a big deal. Sadly it’s a massive hit and miss. Enter the Dragon the film has been remastered so it looks and sounds wonderful.
For some fans that’s all that they’ll want, a nice and clean copy of Enter the Dragon. However, for the fanatics that want in-depth and fresh behind the scenes features that’s where this Bluray falters. The special features are a mixed bag of old and new. The old special features contain the content that you actually want to know such as a making of. This documentary is one of the worst that I’ve ever seen. It literally has terrible dissolve effects to transition from one talking head to another. For some reason they did not mute the tail end of the transitions, so you hear two people talking over one another and then one of the sounds abruptly ends. This is pathetic to repackage this pile of trash in a 40th anniversary!
Even the new special features are odd too. They almost feel like an inside joke. They don’t invite you into understanding the basis for which they exist in the first place. I watched them and still didn’t understand what I was watching. They were poorly constructed.
Also included with the Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Bluray are several collectibles shown below:
As you can imagine I’m gonna say that you should pass buying and just rent this 40th Anniversary edition of Enter the Dragon unless you’re just a hardcore fan who simply wants to own a great looking copy of Enter the Dragon.
