The Big Boss (Platinum Edition) in October - Menus added

Hong Kong Legends have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Big Boss (Platinum Edition) for 23rd October 2006 priced at £19.99. Bruce Lee tears up the screen in this seminal martial arts film that introduced his magnetic charisma and ground breaking fight choreography to the world and was instrumental in creating the legend that he ultimately became.
