Game of Death II Reviews

  • Dec 30, 2012

    List of pluses and minuses: + lots of kung fu fighting, at least 9 fights - really naive and corny exploitation of earlier films, especially Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon + Bruce Lee imitation is well done and the actor has obviously practiced Kung Fu - the dialogue is bad and the plot is a bit difficult to follow because it is too simple. - the humor is unintentional and the film looks silly, also because clips of real Lee have been inserted in some scenes. This was an Kung Fu & Bruce Lee exploitation film from year 1981. I had bought it long time ago on DVD, probably from some bargain sale in a supermarket and had forgotten to watch it. The actor who imitates Lee and lots of fights in a short film makes this film worth seeing because he makes it look like Bruce. Please note: Bruce Lee is NOT acting in this film. Just so you know..

    It's barely a sequel to the first, and again uses stock footage of Lee from previous films, plus actors that look nothing like him, but the best way to work around the fact that the main actor can no longer 'act'? Just kill his character off. In an unusual move, the main character is killed off, then replaced by his 'brother' who suddenly appears in the movie. There is just so much genre hopping in this movie that by the end, you'll think it's a science fiction film. It's actually a bit better than "Game Of Death", but it's a silly convoluted plot...

    I own this on DVD in a five movie pack along with: * The Big Boss (1970) * Fist Of Fury (1971) * Way Of The Dragon (1972) * Game Of Death (1978)

    This film was REALLY cheesy and the fight scenes were very slow and not well-captured! The deaths were quite cheesy. The martial arts skills demonstrated by the actor were surprisingly good though! However, the film was too bland too receive a high rating so I have to give it a 2.5/5!

    A total insult to Bruce Lee's legacy. The fact that they took footage from his funeral is insulting. There is no Bruce Lee in this film, just stock footage. This is embarrassing, and every copy needs to be destroyed.

    This film is in the same vain as the first. Splices of scenes from Bruce Lee's earlier works are mixed in with new footage from a different actor. They got a little more creative this time around though. In order to make the splices match, they created the sets to look like the ones from the other films. (Something the first movie failed to do) Also the Bruce Lee clone has much better moves this time around. In fact....his moves are exceptional in this sequel. Aside from not having the original Bruce appear in the final act , Game of Death II is for the most part a much better film then it's predecessor. Because of the improved Choreographed martial arts, the steady pace of the action, a small hint of Star Trek and a better attempt overall at what the first film tried to do, I recommend this as a suitable addition to your kung fu theater collection.
