Response to Question for LJF regarding Enter The Dragon


I share similar thoughts with you when I watched the replay of ETD.
In my opinion, it's all for dramatic action effect. It's true that Bruce hated gimmicky but he also understood that slight gimmicks like flipping over the Shaolin monks, jumping up the tree, flying kick at Han etc. would create more excitement and dramatic action effect in order to capture the audience attention, just like his battle cry. He once said as long as they were not over exaggerating and existed throughout the whole movie, he would still accept certain dramatic action effect.
Bruce was the action choreograper, so end of the day, he call the shots. Chow, Weintraub and the rest would certinly not interfere with his action choreography.
