This is truly not the True Game of Death
22 May 1999 | by JayDaManSee all my reviews

Hi yaaa!!! That's the sounds of Bruce Li not Bruce Lee. This movie starts off with a brutal scene where two guys poison Bruce Lee (the real one) by putting poison in his drink. The footage of this is Bruce having drinks with Han from Enter the Dragon. From there the movie is just funny. Bruce Li can't fight for anything and there is corny 70s music playing every time he fights. Bruce Lee's girl friend which is supposed to be Linda Lee, is kidnapped after Bruce wouldn't do a movie that the mob wanted him to do. Sounds familiar? When he reaches the HQ of the mob he fights many men excluding a sumo! There is also a motorcycle scene and he wears the same clothes as the original Bruce. In the end they show clips of the real Bruce to make the movie a little better. This is the best part of the movie because they show clips of the real Lee and the fact that it's almost over. I personally like watching cheap imitations for the laughs.
