Derek Jacobi as "Gracchus" in Gladiator (2000):
I don't pretend to be a man of the people. But I do try to be a man for the people.

Tagline: Bruce Lee challenges the underworld to a game of death.
Genres: Action | Martial-Arts | World-Cinema
Released: 23 March 1978 ()
Length: 85 min
Rating: 4 out of 5 4/5
  • It's the film that Bruce Lee was working on when he died in 1973. They released it posthoumously in his honour five years after his death in 1978. The story had to be adapted, and body doubles put in for some missing shots, but the fight scenes at the end as he works his way through the restaurant floor guardians are classic.
  • Bruce Lee fights one-on-one in a nunchucka battle with Dan Inosanto, his real life "Jeet Kune Do" student, who to this day, still keeps the "Jeet Kune Do" concepts alive!
  • Bruce Lee fights one-on-one with Chuck Norris at the very beginning, and boy does Chuck have a hairy back.
  • Bruce Lee fights one-on-one with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ... all 7ft2 of him, and still manages to kick him straight in the head (and that is without jumping).
  • Bruce Lee's yellow outfit with black stripes is super cool, and inspired Quentin Tarantino's costume for Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill Volume 1".
Starring: Bruce Lee, Dan Inosanto and Chuck Norris. Directed by Robert Clouse. Bruce Lee challenges the underworld to a game of death.
