Legend of the Fist is first and foremost a tribute to Bruce Lee. Subtitled The Return of Chen Zhen, it acts as a sequel to Fist of Fury, with Donnie Yen reprising Bruce Lee's famous role. Having survived the original film, Chen Zhen fights with the Allies in France during WWI, and later returns to Japan-occupied China as a member of the resistance. Cue awesome action scenes and another take on the dojo scene, but Infernal Affairs director Andrew Lau also takes the time to explore the historical and political elements of the story and adds the visual richness evident in his other films
AKA: "Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen"
Loosely ties into Bruce Lee's "Fist of Fury/The Chinese Connection", with Donnie Yen playing Lee's character, Chen Zhen, years after the events of the original movie. The whole film is essentially a nod to Bruce Lee, with Yen donning a black chauffer's uniform and mask like Kato from "The Green Hornet" series and the film ending with a very similar showdown in a Japanese dojo as in the previous film. Still, it's got a decent blend of spy-thriller intrigue and amazing fight scenes.
