2.0 out of 5 stars A strange one... April 1, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Okay, this one is unusual, due to some very heavy editing. First of all, I must respectfully point out that the below reviewer isn't talking about this flick, New Game of Death. He's talking about an entirely different movie: Tower of Death, aka Game of Death 2. That movie is an indirect sequel to the 1978, Robert Clouse-directed Game of Death. This movie, however, is something else. Like most kung-fu movies, it is known by another name: Goodbye Bruce Lee. But here it has been edited and changed around. Goodbye Bruce Lee was a psuedo-documentary in which Bruce Li was introduced as the man who would complete Bruce Lee's unfinished movie Game of Death. There was even a short interview with Kareem Abdul Jabbar at the beginning, as well as some shots of Li working the high-bar, giving us a peek at his acrobatic skills. Then, mid-course through this documentary, a "movie" began, in which Li fought some crooks and eventually rescues his fiancee, who is held in a martial artist-filled pagoda. This edit of Goodbye Bruce Lee features all of that, save for the Jabbar interview and the original narration, which have both been removed. Now it is made to resemble just a regular movie, and not a documentary at all. However the editing has left it very odd. For example, it still begins with Li working the high-bar. But instead of narration explaining who this man is, the theme music (a very Blaxploitation sounding song called "King of Kung Fu") plays relentlessly, and there is no dialog. Then Li is taken to a producer's office, where he's told that he's been chosen to complete Bruce Lee's movie Game of Death. Li agrees, and the producers have him and his girlfriend sit down in a projection room, so they can show him "the portion of the movie that Bruce finished. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the Killer Peacocks! June 13, 2007
Format:DVD
Game of Death II (aka Tower of Death) is a dichotomy of a film. It is a Bruceploitation film (though it is one of the better ones) and it is an exiting revenge flick. Raymond Chow had apparently not made enough money off of the insipid Game of Death and was slowly leaking "newly found" footage of Bruce so it was bound that he would create another film with spliced in footage, redubbed dialog and, of course, Bruce's namesake. A lot of people were using Lee's name to promote their own productions, but Golden Harvest (who Bruce worked for; though technically this was a Seasonal production) was the worst of these offenders.

The first act of the movie is the least interesting and worst part of the film. Bruce Lee stars (posthumously edited in) as Billy Lo (Bruce Lee) who visits his friend Chin Ku (Hwang Jang Lee) who is currently beating up an under-classed challenger. After an reestablishment of friendship between the two (never a good sign in a Kung Fu film), he visits an abbot (Roy Chiao revisiting his role from Enter the Dragon so they can reuse and redub footage) to discuss about his contumacious brother Bobby Lo (Tong Lung who also starred in Game of Death).

Of course, the scenes that compromise the first act are not only exploitative of Bruce Lee they are also poorly done. The most obvious is that the backgrounds do not match between Bruce's footage and the new footage. Also check out the sculpted back muscles of Bruce and compare them to his double. It is not even close. The fight scenes with Bruce (and his double) do not flow well. However, anytime you see a fight scene and that Bruce (or his double) does a difficult move such as a flip you will notice that it is the incomparable Yuen Biao (he even has a small role toward the beginning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lets just not complete his unfinished work ok? July 25, 2001
By Stephen
Format:DVD
Well I gotta comment of the people who want to view Real Bruce Lee movies to get to know him first from a reliable source and not the Dragon the bruce lee story but a book. Bruce chorographed all his fightin and wouldn't want someone else do it as Yuen Bao. Every attempt to finish his movie or imitate is just unrealistic that people will say "Hey he is just like Bruce!" Tower of Death does not have the Bruce quality or realistic fighting scenes. It is made up of acrobatic moves. Unless u want to see that then go ahead rent or buy it. Remember the "New" and Tower of Death does not include real footage of Bruce Lee just reminders of other movies(setting & clothes he wore.) Go for a real movie of his. (He made only 4)

1.0 out of 5 stars False Advertising July 8, 2001
By W. Tang
Format:DVD
The reason I consider this false advertising is because Bruce Lee's image is prominitely featured on the cover and yet he does not make a live appearance in the movie. His scenes are edited from his other movies. For instance, a scene in which he enters a room is from " Enter the Dragon ". As well as other movies. It is poorly edited together and the acting is horrendous. I was also very disappointed in the choreography. They fight scenes were sluggish at best. The main reason I bought this feature was because I wanted to see the legendary Bruce Lee choreographed by the legendary Yuen Wo-ping. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I cannot recommend this to any martial arts action fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars what kind of martial arts is this??? July 15, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
absolutely horrible, nothing better can be said of this film. i truly wish i could give zero stars. the actors seem to be people taken off the street and all the fights seem to be in the same room with the fake sky background (couldnt they find a better fake sky painter???). dont even bother renting this. the bruce li guy is actually a decent martial artist in another bruce lee ripoff called fists of bruce lee, which was enjoyable though not a great movie. as far as this movie though he seems to not even know martial arts, because he moves so slowly and avoids punches and kicks before they are even thrown!!
