Trivia

Some scenes (such as Bobby watching a filmstrip while being briefed on the Palace of Death, and Bobby exploring the palace at night wearing all black) feature costumes and settings identical to those in scenes from Enter the Dragon (1973), indicating that Bruce Lee was originally intended to "star" as the main character throughout via inserts. (In the finished film, footage of Lee is used only for a smaller supporting role as the main character's brother.) See more »

Goofs

Many, as Bruce Lee's role in this film was composed entirely of archival footage. Most noticeable is when his character visits the Abbot, who alternates between a man with a grey beard and red costume to a man with a white beard and a yellow costume. See more »

Alternate Versions

A third cut of the film exists, but it is extremely rare. It is the official South Korean print of the film which uses more footage of Korean actors Kim Tai Jong (Lee Chen Chiang/Lee Chen Kuo) and Hwang Jang Lee (Chin Ku), including an extended sword form demonstration with Hwang's character. This cut also downplays the Bruce Lee angle as most of the stock footage featuring Lee has been cut out. Outside of theatrical release, the only confirmed home release of this cut is an old full screen South Korean VHS release. Despite the rarity of the full film, the opening 7+ minutes are available for viewing on YouTube under the title "Tower of Death Korean Version". Whether or not the original widescreen film sources still exist is unknown. See more »

Er......fancy seeing a movie with a lot of Kung Fu?
21 October 2001 | by davideo-2See all my reviews

STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs ..........well,if you come across this movie in the video shop or on TV,please don't miss it.There's not just lots and lots of it,but it's also incredibly entertaining ,especially the end showdown,which does however get a bit tiresome as it stretches out a fair bit.Also,this is the most convincing attempt at dubbing in a Lee movie,with you being practically unable to notice that the words aren't coming out the character's mouths properly as they speak.If only similar praise could be given to the plot and the acting which are,unfortunately,exceptionally bad in this film.Still,if you were expecting it to win a 1981 Academy Award (R) for either of these things,you don't really know your martial arts action films that well.***
