After five years since Enter the Dragon was released and Bruce Lee passed away, Golden Harvest hired director Robert Clouse to finish Lee’s incomplete final project, Game of Death. Only one third of the film had been filmed before Lee’s death. The end result is a thrilling experience that combines Lee’s martial arts expertise with Clouse’s talent for creating action-packed scenes. for nail-biting suspense.
Billy Lo, also known as Lee, is a highly acclaimed kung fu actor in the Hong Kong movie scene. He enjoys a blissful relationship with his girlfriend, Ann, but their peace is disrupted by a menacing group of American gangsters led by Dr Land and his right-hand man, Steiner. The gangsters are determined to gain control over Billy, but he refuses to succumb to their demands. In retaliation, the gangsters resort to violence, triggering a series of events where Billy must use his skills to outsmart the syndicate and protect himself and Ann.
With fantastic fight choreography by Sammo Hung, the leading inheritor to Lee’s throne at that time, and a much-beloved music score by John Barry, Game of Death was an international smash hit that helped to keep Lee’s star burning bright long after he was gone. It is accompanied here by its 1981 sequel Game of Death II (Tower of Death), one final star vehicle for Bruce Lee made using more rare footage found in the studio vaults.
