Is it fair to say you've seen this if you've only seen the stuff Lee shot?

Your call I guess. Easier to separate the two versions if you just watch A Warriors Journey.

Always hard ranking this one. The suit is iconic and the pagoda scene alone puts this easily in my top 100. The rest of it is so terrible it sort of has a so bad it's good quality; it's kinda like Ninja Terminator and Enter the Dragon had a baby, but it's so far from Lee's vision that I hesitate to give it credit for that. Still, it's a must watch for any old school martial arts or exploitation film aficionados...even if it's just to curse its name.
