Storyline

Brandon plays Brandon Ma, a regular working Joe who holds down two jobs, so he can support his girlfriend May and his dream of owning a motorcycle. Brandon's best friend is Michael (played by Michael Wong), an ambitious and murderous dope peddler. How Brandon and Michael ever became friends is the biggest mystery in the film. In any case, Michael covets May and so he comes up with a plan that will win her for him, and solves a problem he's been having. It seems that an undercover cop named Sharky has been using his police connections to dominate the local cocaine trade, so Michael has him killed and uses Brandon as the fall guy. Brandon goes to jail, though he thinks that he will be released soon thanks to the efforts of his good buddy Michael. Eight years later Brandon finally gets out of jail.

An average action movie...
28 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

For a first movie with a leading role, then "Legacy of Rage" was a very generic and not particularly memorable movie for Brandon Lee. I was, however, surprised that Brandon Lee actually seriously started his career in Hong Kong cinema.

I was unfortunately watching an English dubbed DVD without the option to switch to the original Cantonese audio track. Granted that it was dubbed, it wasn't the worst of dubbing jobs in Asian movies, but still...

The story was adequate, but it was just a bit too forced and scripted, and Brandon Lee weren't given that many opportunities to showcase his skills, neither acting nor martial arts.

Aside from Brandon Lee then "Legacy of Rage" also starred Michael Wong, in what might actually be one of this more impressive and memorable roles. I didn't know that Michael Wong had acted opposite Brandon Lee, so that was a nice treat. The movie also has a small appearance by Bolo Yeung (yep, the memorable bad guy from "Blood Sport").

While fun to watch Brandon Lee's first movie in a leading role, then "Legacy of Rage" wasn't particularly memorable. This movie might appeal to die-hard fans of Brandon Lee, but it doesn't offer much for the fans of Hong Kong cinema.
