Bruce Won arrives in America in search of an American G.I. who saved his life in the Korean War. He meets an orphan boy and together they land themselves in a string of outrageous situations. This high-strung farce culminates when a case of mistaken identity leads a gang of thugs to think Bruce is a karate master. They arrange a nationally-televised match which pits our hero against a monstrous brute, and Bruce is beaten to a bloody pulp... Written by <goldenshadows@hotmail.com>

disappointing sequel
23 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

this sequel to They call me Bruce was nowhere near as good as the original film.i don't think i laughed once during this movie.plus,there's less action.in fact,the movie bordered on tedium for me at times.the acting wasn't as good here either.there's a bit of a romance angle thrown in which wasn't really necessary in my opinion.generally,the movie just wasn't very entertaining,but that's just my opinion.i know i won't be watching this movie again anytime soon.you could do a lot more constructive things with your time than watch this movie.but if you do decide to watch it,you're better off catching it on cable or a really cheap rental.for me,They Still Call Me Bruce is a disappointing 4/10
