Decent Bruceploitation
26 July 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Goodbye Bruce Lee: His Last Game of Death (1975)

** (out of 4)

Bruce Lee suddenly and tragically dies so Bruce Li is asked by some movie producers to film new scenes so that they can finish GAME OF DEATH. It turns out that these are actually criminals trying to get Li to transfer some money and after refusing to give the money back Li has his girlfriend kidnapped. She's forced into a tower where Li must battle people on various floors to reach her.

GOODBYE BRUCE LEE: HIS LAST GAME OF DEATH is another Bruceploitation picture and I must admit that I was actually entertained by this one. If you're looking for a "good" movie then you're certainly not going to find it here but if you enjoy this Bruce Lee wannabe movies then you should be able to get a couple kicks out of this one. It certainly doesn't help that we get an opening song, which is a rip-off of the one heard in SHAFT so things get off to a fun start.

The entire story is rather bizarre and silly but it makes for a decent exploitation picture. The film contains various rip-offs including Li going up against a large black basketball player. The final thirty minutes of the movie is pretty much non-stop martial arts as Li has to go from one floor to the next and battling various people. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking with these scenes but they are slightly entertaining in their own way.

Again, this isn't a "good" movie by any stretch of the imagination but at the same time I thought the film was fairly well-made considering the budget. The cinematography was actually decent and there's a fairly good flow to the picture. GOODBYE BRUCE LEE: HIS LAST GAME OF DEATH isn't a masterpiece but it's entertaining.
