Product Description:

After Bruce Lee's death, his friend John Ladalski conceived of a film to promote Jeet Kune Do, the martial art that Lee had developed. The film that resulted from this ambition was COUNTER ATTACK (aka THE CHINESE STUNTMAN). Ladalski's desire to showcase Jeet Kune Do was somewhat thwarted by the other martial artists and stuntmen involved in production, and as a result COUNTER ATTACK exhibits a conflict between Lee's utilitarian style and the more flowery kung-fu used for maximum visual impact on film. Bruce Li stars as a promising insurance salesman assigned to investigate the suspicious injury of a martial arts star on a film set. Over the course of his investigation, he becomes a stuntman himself and discovers that the injury was part of an insurance scam. But now, the perpetrators of the fraud and the injured star, jealous of Li's newfound popularity, plot to do away with him. In addition to the variety of martial arts on display in the film, COUNTER ATTACK also serves as a critique of corrupt elements in the Hong Kong movie industry.
