Bruce Lee had filmed over 30 minutes of fight scenes for Game of Death (1978) when work was suspended to allow Lee to work on Enter the Dragon (1973). However, Lee died before he could return. Six years later, director Robert Clouse fleshed out a feature around the original footage with a new cast, including two stand-ins for Lee. After the success of Game of Death in Japan, there was high demand for a new Bruce Lee movie there. As a result, much of the movie is filmed in and takes place in Japan. See more »
Many, as Bruce Lee's role in this film was composed entirely of archival footage. Most noticeable is when his character visits the Abbot, who alternates between a man with a grey beard and red costume to a man with a white beard and a yellow costume. See more »
Kung-fu fighters should be fierce like a lion and swift like a peacock so I study their styles.

This is high grade cheese fare of B movie kung fu flicks. Bruce "wannabe" Lee is played by Bruce Li...I think. Of course, let's show quick clips of Bruce and do closeups of his eyes and if you quint at the right angle during a certain time of the day during the winter solstice, it kind of looks like Bruce. You'll laugh in awe at how the film splicing isn't very good, but some cool deleted scenes from Enter the Dragon are thrown in the mix. According to the movie, Bruce Lee was killed by a dart while hanging from a helicopter. Of course, they think this can excuse Bruce Li for trying to be Bruce even though his character is supposed to be Bruce's brother (who for some reason still mimes Bruce's gestures and fighting style - very POORLY). See Bruce go one-on-one with the cowardly lion. The props department stopped by Kay-Bee, you see. Bruce also finds nothing wrong with savagely beating up a crippled man. Towards the end, the director decided "let's throw a flashback" for a scene just shown 3 minutes ago!! They must've thought that only one-celled organisms with attention deficit disorder could fully understand this film.
