An exercise in bad taste...
9 May 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is unbelievable in its audacity. What's up with this? Bruce Lee (oops not really it's actually Bruce Le) pretends to be dead to fight back against those who attempted to poison him. This features lots of scenes of Bruce Le training, while enveloped in some time of 60s psychedelic haze on the screen, for his fights with a bunch of henchmen dressed in tuxedos, a weapons master, two sumo wrestlers and finally a black boxer while trying to rescue his wife from the hands of those who attempted to poison him! Talk about being in bad taste..yeech is this one ever! Still I have to admit I laughed at this quite a bit.
