Bruce Lee stock footage plus intentionally bad movie equals a whole lot of fun!

The Game of Death II "stars" Bruce Lee, Lee stumbles onto something big, real big! After a meeting with his spiritual adviser and staving off a couple of assaults, the dragon learns that his best friend is dead. With the help of plenty of stock footage and a couple of doubles (Biao Yuen being the lead faux Bruce) Bruce Lee once again graces the silver screen.

Sadly once the last of the footage runs out so does his life, Bruce is dead!! Oh no! Just like real life! All this happens in the first 20 or so minutes into the movie. It's up to little brother to find out what big brother stumbled onto (It's real big I tell ya!!) What happens next is like nothing you could ever imagine. Krazy kung-fu action (directed by Yuen Woo-ping), copious amounts of blood letting and vengeance abound! Is it bad, hell yes! Is it worth watching? You bet your sweet bippy!

Strongly recommended for fans of cheesy action films. This was the last official Bruce Lee movie. What a way to go out, as a pile of stock footage in a B-movie.
Bruce Lee stock footage plus intentionally bad movie equals a whole lot of fun! Bruce Lee stock footage plus intentionally bad movie equals a whole lot of fun!

I saw a documentary which had all the battles that Bruce Lee did in their entirety (with Don Inosanto, the Grappling guy and with Kareem Jabbar). The documentary pieces were a lot better than the finished movie.I guess they tried to cull what they had to finish the film.

You can't beat Yuen Woo-Ping's choreography with a stick. But there is a later and better version of GAME OF DEATH to be found within A WARRIOR'S JOURNEY where they have included all the footage along with the reconstructed storyline exactly as Bruce intended it.
