All of Bruce Lee’s greatest hits in one place.
The Criterion Collection has announced a new box set featuring Bruce Lee‘s greatest hits.
Titled Bruce Lee: His Greatest Hits, the five-film collection will include The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, The Way of the Dragon, Enter the Dragon, and Game of Death.
“This collection brings together the five films that define the Lee legend: furiously exciting fist-fliers propelled by his innovative choreography, unique martial-arts philosophy, and whirlwind fighting style,” a description for the set on Criterion’s website reads. “Though he completed only a handful of films while at the peak of his stardom before his untimely death at age thirty-two, Lee left behind a monumental legacy as both a consummate entertainer and a supremely disciplined artist who made Hong Kong action cinema a sensation the world over.”
We couldn’t be more excited to announce BRUCE LEE: HIS GREATEST HITS, our tribute to the life & work of the iconic Bruce Lee with 5 dazzling, action-packed kung-fu landmarks starring the international martial-arts legend!

Along with the announcement came a trailer for the set, which includes various scenes from the five films (keep an eye out for Chuck Norris’ cameo in The Way of the Dragon, as well as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s cameo in Game of Death). The seven Blu-ray disc set is available for $87.46 on Criterion’s website for preorder. The set will be available on July 14, 2020.
Last year, Quentin Tarantino faced backlash for the way the late martial arts icon was depicted in his film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In an interview with The Wrap, Lee’s daughter, Shannon, railed against the movie for portraying him as “an arrogant asshole who was full of hot air, and not someone who had to fight triple as hard as any of those people did to accomplish what was naturally given to so many others.”
