The condition and style of Billy's running shoes changes during the final fight scenes. In some scenes they are brand new and in other scenes, they are old sneakers taped to resemble the shoes that Bruce Lee wore. A good example of this is when Billy approaches his nunchuck bag before his fight with Pasqual. You can clearly see that the his shoes are old and the black stripe pattern is actually made by strips of black electrical tape. See more »

Ignore the many carpers out there and enjoy this movie for what it is,namely a pulse pounding,high-kicking fistic martial arts action flick which in the last 20 minutes is raised to celestial heights by the inclusion of three consecutive terrific fight sequences featuring the incomparable and majestic Bruce Lee.This is a quality production and is helmed expertly by Robert Clouse and begins in an effective way with the clever credits accompanied by one of composer John Barry's best action themes,so good in fact that it even enhances Lee's final fights.True,some of the doubling and effects are piss poor and the acting from many of the rest of the cast is embarrassingly bad,especially Gig Young who is spectacularly awful.He committed suicide shortly after this was released and one can see why.However,I doubt anyone went to see GAME OF DEATH in order to watch Gig Young in action but rather to see the greatest action star who has ever been or ever will be,if they were disappointed by what they saw in that magical final 20 minutes then I doubt anything could please them.Overall this is one great action movie.
