Storyline

Bruce Lee has just died, but the BSI is swinging into action to salvage the situation. Aided by the brilliant Professor Lucas, cells from the martial arts master's body are removed and grown into three adult Bruce Lee clones. After undergoing training to bring their skills up to the level of their 'father', the three are sent out to battle crime, with one sent to take on a gold smuggler, and the other two teaming up to shut down an evil mad scientist.

three for the price of one
8 January 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Following Bruce Lee's death, Hong Kong made a number of "Bruceploitation" movies: they starred people who looked like Bruce Lee (and some got advertised as genuine Bruce Lee movies). "The Clones of Bruce Lee" is a prime example. It depicts the creation of Bruce Lee clones sent on missions. Of course, the whole thing is an excuse for non-stop action. The best scene is set on a Thai beach. Without a doubt, the movie's target audience is 14-year-old boys.

This is the first Bruceploitation movie that I've seen. All that I can say is that I hope that the entire genre is like this. The funny action and erotic beach constitute one fun flick! A really good time.
