I honestly did not like much of the movie there. This movie was much worse than any other fighting movie or any other movie with Jackie Chan. But it does not deserve a negative note, because although the plot is a bit weak and the cast (in addition to Jackie Chan), the film had some fighting scenes and other special effects. Highly recommend.

Did You Know?


Bruce Lee had filmed over 30 minutes of fight scenes for Game of Death (1978) when work was suspended to allow Lee to work on Enter the Dragon (1973). However, Lee died before he could return. Six years later, director Robert Clouse fleshed out a feature around the original footage with a new cast, including two stand-ins for Lee. After the success of Game of Death in Japan, there was high demand for a new Bruce Lee movie there. As a result, much of the movie is filmed in and takes place in Japan.

Many, as Bruce Lee's role in this film was composed entirely of archival footage. Most noticeable is when his character visits the Abbot, who alternates between a man with a grey beard and red costume to a man with a white beard and a yellow costume.

Alternate Versions

There are two main cuts of the film. The first is the original Hong Kong cut, properly titled Tower of Death, which is approximately 86 minutes (NTSC/Film speed). Most of this cut's music is sourced from Les Baxter's score for The Dunwich Horror. This is the cut used for the UK Hong Kong Legends DVD. The second main cut is the international English dubbed print entitled Game of Death 2, which is roughly 94 minutes. While no footage was cut from the Hong Kong print, existing Bruce Lee and Bruce Lee related stock footage is used to create new scenes. The most prominent addition is the greenhouse fight between Casanova Wong and "Bruce Lee" (actually Kim Tai Jong doubling for Lee) which was shot by Sammo Hung for the Hong Kong cut of Game of Death. Other scenes include a childhood montage of "Billy Lo", which is actually comprised of old footage from Bruce Lee's childhood films. The other new scene is a "funeral dedication" which uses footage from Bruce Lee's real funeral, but is done more tastefully than its use in Game of Death as it plays off as more of a real tribute to Bruce Lee than a movie funeral. The other addition after this is simply a proper end credits montage. This is the cut released in the US by Fox Home Video. Ironically, of the two cuts, the extended international cut is more widely available, even in Hong Kong in the "Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection" DVD set.
