"...Carradine is masterful in all his roles....Visually CIRCLE OF IRON is excellent....[The] camerawork is superb..."
New York Times - 08/05/2009
"[A] wistful reminder of the modest pleasures of pre-blockbuster action movies, when budgets were more in line with ambitions."
Bruce Lee co-wrote this martial arts tale of a young man in search of truth. An amusing, unusual blend of action and philosophy. An all-star cast, including the inimitable Eli Wallach (THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY) and the great Christopher Lee, add to the fun.
