Storyline

It's one of the "Bruceploitation" films that were made to cash in on Bruce Lee after his death. The story follows Bruce Lee after he dies and ends up in Hell. Once there, he does the logical thing and opens a gym. After fending off the advances of the King Of Hell's naked wives, he discovers that the most evil people in Hell are attempting a takeover, so Bruce sets out to stop it. As if it wasn't weird enough, the evil people are: Zatoichi (the blind swordsman hero of Japanese film), James Bond, The Godfather, The Exorcist, Emmanuelle (the "heroine" of many European softcore porn films), Dracula, and, of course, Clint Eastwood (played by a Chinese guy). Aiding Bruce is The One-Armed Swordsman (hero of kung-fu films), Kain from the U.S. tv series, Kung-Fu (actually played by a Chinese guy this time), and Popeye the Sailor Man! Yes, Popeye the Sailor Man. He eats spinach and helps Bruce fight some mummies. Written by Anonymous

Unintentional Genius in The Dragon Lives Again
19 January 2005 | by (St. Petersburg, FL) – See all my reviews

This movie was purchased by a friend of mine and myself as a 4-movie set. Long story short, we only got two. But one of them was this. The money was well spent.

If you see a 2 DVD set entitled 'Return of the Dragon Pack,' I highly recommend it for bad movie buffs and/or kung fu movie buffs with a light-hearted nature.

The kung fu is good, just highly over planned and wrapped around hilariously stupid 'special moves.' To see Bruce Liang punch a guy in the balls after shouting 'Fist of Fury' is worth millions.

Some of the plot decisions- well, all of them, are a bit strange. James Bond isn't that great. Zatoichi the Blind Swordsman is far more capable against 'Bruce Lee.' To put it simply, if you throw all your logic out the window- i.e. Dracula walking around in the sun, you'll have a great time. And if you want to convince your friends, it has pointless and random female nudity too.
