Trivia

Some scenes (such as Bobby watching a filmstrip while being briefed on the Palace of Death, and Bobby exploring the palace at night wearing all black) feature costumes and settings identical to those in scenes from Enter the Dragon (1973), indicating that Bruce Lee was originally intended to "star" as the main character throughout via inserts. (In the finished film, footage of Lee is used only for a smaller supporting role as the main character's brother.) See more »

Goofs

Bobby Lo somersaults forward over Chin Ku in mid-air, however he's finishes it backwards in the next take. See more »

If it wasn't for the fight sequences, this movie would be absolute garbage...
16 July 2004 | by (Wisconsin, United States) – See all my reviews

NOTE: This review covers the Fortune Star Digitally Remastered version of Si Wang Ta (a.k.a. Game of Death II/Tower of Death).

This is another disgrace to the name Bruce Lee. Not only is it another butcher job using never-before-seen Bruce Lee footage and some thrown in shots from his other movies, the plot is loose (if there is one) and just plain doesn't make sense. The fight sequences are great, however, since the fight choreographer is none other than Yuen Woo Ping...but that's all that really makes this movie even remotely interesting. I picked this up for $8, and I would consider $3 of it wasted (this wasn't bargain binned, but should be). Only die-hard martial arts movie fans should bother to watch this, and really only for the fight sequences and to be that much more complete in titles...otherwise steer clear of this title.

Also, for "extras", we are "treated" to the original trailer and the "new" trailer which is nothing special at all.
