More Bruceploitaion Cheesiness

"There are probably hundreds of these Bruceploitation flicks out there, and I have no idea why I keep giving these horrible flicks chances. Honestly they lack story and if they have a story all they do is ad the same plot about Bruce's controversial death. At least this one avoided that. But don't get your hopes up this movie is not that great. first of every single detail of Bruce Lee is here; from the white morning suit that he wore in Chinese Connection (fists of fury) to the yellow track suit he wore in Game of Death(Bruce last unfinished movie)
The movie doesn't really have a plot, well it does but it really isn't important. it seems that there are these Japanese trained fighters who have invaded into china and are looking for the secret plans from the Chinese, the plot is as simple as that but once again trust me it's not that important. the main character played by Bruce Le looks a lot like him, anyway he is being attacked randomly and constantly by fighters who just simply...well... just want to fight. Really the movie is just random fight scenes over and over again, even though they are descent they are long and before you know it you're goanna start asking yourself where the story is. The story does come along but it takes so longgggggggggg that all it's heard is probably 2 or 3 sentences. another scene that could have been shorter was a fight in a tower (similar to the original game of death) the fight felt so long that i had to fast forward because it was becoming boring especially a fight scene involving Le and a another fighter who uses snakes to beat his opponents. the flick is worth to watch when you feel like watching cheesiness but if you feel like watching real kung fu skip it this is not for you.
As for the picture quality I recommend for you not to buy the one listed here, due to the fact that it's released through PASSION PRODUCTIONS and all the movies released by them have horrible quality and usually they come in a heavily truncated full screen, like the other reviewer below me said these DVD's are usually found in a Dollar Store. So if I where you i would by the Ultimate Dragon Collection that brings this film along with 10 other Bruceploitaion Classics. Don't expect any masterpieces
MY PERSONAL RATING: 2 OUT OF 5
NOT THE REAL BRUCE LEE

"When I wrote my master's thesis on Bruce Lee's films, I did a special chapter on Bruce Lee exploitation films. Bruce Le (One E short of a full Bruce Lee!) stars in this one. The production values are awful, the villains are cliched and overdone, but GOD..what an entertaining piece of exploitation! If there was any criticism of the real Bruce Lee it was that he just didn't have enough fight scenes in his film. I know that may sound stupid, after all he choreographed masterpieces of cinema, but in the exploitation films, such as this one, the fighting is all there is since no one can act! So, if you can get over the fact that once again, you've been fooled into thinking the real Master stars in this film, sit back and enjoy."
