Both the English dubbed and original Chinese versions (not the version on the Hong Kong Universe DVD) feature music scores from other films. The English dubbed versions feature a large number of Denny Zeitlin's music cues from Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and one or two from Jerry Goldsmith's score for Alien (1979), while the original Chinese versions features a large number of Les Baxter's music cues from The Dunwich Horror (1970).

The late 90s Universe Laser DVD released in Hong Kong had a unique "hybrid" Cantonese track, in that it maintained the original Cantonese voice acting, but used the music from the international English dub. The Mandarin track followed a similar pattern. See more »
A truly surreal piece of classic exploitation that's just so insane you feel you have to love it, a slice n' dice treatment made on real Lee footage jumbled together to create yet another new `Bruce Lee movie', much in the same vein as its non-related predecessor, however this one's a lot more fun. Bruce Lee returns, so they say, as Billy Lo, eager to discover the reasoning behind his master's sudden death, which sure enough leads to his own end. Enter Billy's brother Bobby (Kim Tai Chong, or rather Lee-alike Tong Lung') and the second half of this crazy charade begins, with Bobby continuing the investigations into both the deaths. When the Lee footage runs out (by ludicrously killing off the character halfway using the classic fall from the under carriage of a moving helicopter' trick), the movie is left to Kim who in actual fact does quite well with it, given the circumstance: events consist of visiting the palace of crazy fighter Horan, battling a man in a tarzan outfit in some underground sci-fi laboratory, before beautifully laying waste to a random monk (Lee Hoi San) and Hwang Jang Lee. It's complete madness, but like a cute family puppy it's just too difficult to put down. A shameful exercise that's just unashamedly entertaining.
