Game of Death review

Film is loaded with dialogue zingers: "Time is money." - Billy (Bruce Lee) "All kinds of things happen." "Patience is not one of our strongest virtues." "Don' let them push." "Integrity can be an expensive thing." The story eerily matches the real life of Bruce Lee. In some strange coincidence, he mentioned on the film when he says "Only one scene left on the film. I'll be dropping out of sight myself." and when the Doctor mentions "Open casket after all e is a celebrity" just to fake his death.

One of many great moves? Carl Miller grabbing Billy and while in-front, makes a 360 degree double kick! the 4 kick combo against the opponent with nun-chucks. Of course the flying kicks effortless executed by Mr. Lee.

The Movie Critic:Game Of Death Review (1978)

Game Of Death. A stupid stupid film. Originally a film made by Bruce Lee which went under production in 1972 but was put on hold so Bruce Lee could film Enter the Dragon that same year. He went back to filming it in 1973 but Bruce Lee could not complete due to his untimely death. After that there were multiple attempts to complete Game Of Death but the most famous is the one directed by Robert Clouse which was released in 1978/1979. This Film is a mix match of an actor pretending to be Bruce Lee and the real Bruce Lee from deleted footage and footage from his funeral. This film is a disgrace to Bruce Lee's career and its really sad that he couldn't finish the film as he intended to. Although the film is disgraceful the last ten minutes are worth watching because of the final fight scenes....
