The New Game of Death (1981)

(aka: Tower of Death)



Reviews and Comments

Before the American film Game of Death was even released, a sequel was being produced in Hong Kong. Again, old footage of Bruce Lee and stand-ins are used to create the illusion of Lee playing a major role. This time, the footage of Lee is only of close-ups, unlike Game of Death, which ended with a series of fight scenes Lee filmed before his death. Without Lee involved in any of the action, it's unlikely that his fans would be interested in this movie, although some of the choreography isn't bad. The fight choreography, incidentally, is the only hint of an asset; the plot is indecipherable, the dialogue is ludicrous, and none of the characters are worth caring about.
