Did You Know?

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 »

Not as bad as I thought. Even worse., 7 May 2002
Author: Mika Pykäläaho ( from Järvenpää, Finland

I guess I'm not the only one who says this but I certainly didn't enjoy "Game of death" very much. I have no idea who was the foolish jackass that originally decided to create a whole new Bruce Lee film after his death by using some of his old leftover material but the result looked extremely idiotic and was of course pretty disappointing. The leading role of the movie was actually played by a Bruce Lee lookalike. I'm embarrassed to admit that when I reviewed "Game of death" I actually wasn't aware of it. Of course the double who always hid his eyes behind glasses looked quite suspicious but since he had most of the screen time I reasoned he just had to be the real Lee. After all the film was advertised as Bruce Lee movie and fact the actual, real Lee appeared only in some of the fights sounded bit too incomprehensible to me.

Still, "Game of death" was worth a watch because of those few excellent, fast-paced and breathtaking martial arts scenes at the end of the film with real Lee. But then someone found some more unused Lee stuff and had a senseless idea: let's make a sequel to "Game of death"! This is it then and it couldn't get much dumber from here. I suppose "Game of death 2" is so bad it's almost good in a some campy way. Bruce Lee's character Billy Lo is actually murdered after the middle of the film and Tai Chung Kim who plays his brother Bobby has to revenge his death. You have to be a really fanatic hardcore Bruce Lee freak to check this out because of him. On the other hand, if you just like brainless and acrobatic martial arts scenes I guess you could get some minor kicks out of this one too. But "Game of death 2" is still a horrible film.
