Liesure suit Jimmy. Man that was awful.
Though I remember when I was 17 I probably thought it was cool. That whole Bruce Lee effect thing going on at the time.

As Joe said, "Man that was awfull"

As to the sound effects - since when did a punch to the groin sound like a whipcrack?? Not that I have ever experienced one, but I imagine apart from the pain there would be little or no sound from the contact.

Just about every 70s era Kung Fu flick used those same sound effects for fight sequences.

The sound effects are what MAKES this the best movie intro EVAR! That and the fact that he drives a Jensen Interceptor. 351 Cleveland and 1 horn for town and another for country.

Right on, Simon!

No doubt, this also contains the best score for a movie intro ever in history.

Dennis Coffey was the Hans Zimmer of the 70's. I'd kill to get my hands on that soundtrack.
