GAME OF DEATH (si wang you xi) (1973 U.S. HONG KONG) D: ROBERT CLOUSE D/W/P: BRUCE LEE D: SAMMO HUNG W: JAN SPEARS P: RAYMOND CHOW
It`s nice to be able to see the great footage of Bruce Lee fighting the giant Kareen Abdul-Jabbar, but the rest of this cut `n` paste feature (which Lee died midway through making) is a real chore and depressingly bad. The loopy plot is mostly connected by Lee look-not-a-like Kim Tai Chung wandering about in big sunglasses and being shot from obscure angles. With Gig Young, Dean Jagger, Colleen Camp, Hugh O`Brien, Sammo Hung, Casanova Wong, Yuen Biao (those last three in the HK print only), Bob Wall, James Tien, Lam Ching Ying, Mars, Bruce Law, Betty Ting Pei, Whang ing-Sik, Yuen Wah, George Lazenby, Bruce Li and Nora Miao. Roy Chiao is only in the English version. The familiar Lee funeral footage is trotted out as well, just to leave a bad taste in your mouth. It wasn`t released until 1978.
