The scenes with Bruce Lee's spirit were actually filmed with Tai Chung Kim and Kurt McKinney both speaking different languages. Kim's voice was later dubbed into English and, apparently, both actors did not know what they were saying to each other throughout these scenes - they spoke from cues behind the cameras. See more »
The karate championships at the end are obviously in some kind of small Highschool gym (with few seats). Yet shots of large crowds/announcers/TV crews are used. (Note: spectators are being admitted by a small side-door which obviously is not for a big stadium.) See more »
No Retreat, No Surrender was a fantastic film which is one my absolute favorites. It reminds of the equally great The Karate Kid and Rocky 4 starring Sylvester Stallone. These three films came out during the mid 80`s and as we know most of the finest film was made from 84 to 90, No Retreat, No Surrender was no dissapointment.
When i rented it the first time when i was 12 me and my brother watched it 7 times in one day. The film is full of comedy and moving moments and the subject of martial arts is right down my alley, all around this is an outstanding picture that has all the right elements. The fact that most of the players are unknown doesn`t make a difference, they fit right in this film.
Kurt Mckinney is very fine in the lead role.
