Product Description

Product Description

John Little puts together film footage from the uncompleted Bruce Lee film 'The Game of Death', missing for nearly 28 years, along with previously unseen home movie footage of the great man, to create a compelling documentary for all Bruce Lee fans. Amongst the footage are over 30 minutes of continuous fight scenes.

From Amazon.co.uk

Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey is an engrossing, in-depth 100-minute documentary on the martial artist and film star. It features material from Lee's personal archives and interviews with his wife, Linda Lee Cadwell and students and costars including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Taky Kimura, Bob Wall and Dan Inosanto. The undoubted highlight is the inclusion, for the first time ever, of the complete 34-minute finale to what would have been Lee's final film, Game of Death. Written, directed, produced, choreographed, photographed and designed by Lee, this was intended to be his most personal work and bears little relation to the shoddily assembled film released in cinemas in 1978 under the Game of Death title. Completed by a fitting new score from Wayne Hawkins, the dialogue may be corny but the well-shot action reveals Lee as a master of his art. Also featured are clips from The Big Boss (1971), Fist of Fury (1972), Way of the Dragon (1972) and Enter the Dragon (1973), as well as historic interview footage and excerpts from Lee's appearances in Marlow (1969) and Longstreet (1971). The only drawback is that almost all the movie clips apart from the Game of Death sequences have been panned and scanned, making it sometimes impossible to see the rapid action. Examining Lee's philosophy and motivation as well as his career, this serious, well crafted documentary presents a rounded portrait of a greatly loved star.

On the DVD: the picture is presented in conventional television 4:3, with the footage from Game of Death letterboxed at its original 2.35:1 ratio within the 4:3 frame, though it would have been better presented separately in anamorphically enhanced form. TheGame of Death footage is in very good condition, though a handful of shots are either slightly out of focus or have not been colour corrected. The sound is essentially mono except for the new score for Game of Death in Dolby Digital 5.1. Extras are a new 18-minute dramatisation of sections of Lee's outline for the never shot parts of Game of Death, though this material does not include any fight sequences and the modern-day settings and 4:3 TV movie style fail to match the original. More interesting is the commentary by director John Little who adds a lot of background, particularly on Lee's relationship with various people seen in the film. The package is completed by a music video set to footage of Lee, a trailer and optional English subtitles and hearing impaired subtitles. --Gary S Dalkin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

WOW ... this is the ultimate film on Bruce Lee. Its not just a documentary, the fight scenes are even better than those in Enter the Dragon. The final 40 minutes of this great DVD, is the fight scene at the end of Game of Death .... not the weak version they released after Bruce Lee's death, but the fight scene Bruce intended to be seen. Honestly this is a must for any fan of the fighting arts. As well as all that you have the greatest documentary of Bruce Lee's life, from his early days in Hong Kong to his time in America, to his return to Hong Kong and all the way to his stardom back in the states and beyond.

I feel this documentary was brilliant it gives you an indication on his Martial art and philosophy. It has great interviews with Taky Kimura and Dan Osanta and Linda Lee Cadwell. It shows you the vision Bruce had in mind whilst making the 'Game Of Death' it shows you the awsome fight scenes between Bruce and Kareem Abdul Jabal. This documentary also shows you the unscene footage of the Game of death. I recomend that you watch it or buy it.

If your a Bruce Lee fan then this is the film for you. Everything you need to know about the legened is included in this documentery. It includes a deep insight into the life of Bruce and his family. It has excellent fight scenes involving Bruce, some of which have never been seen before. Footage from "The game of death" which was lost before Bruce died, has been put together and remastered. If you don't like documentery's and are more of a fight fan, then it's worth getting this film to see the footage from the game of death it lasts for about 45 minutes and is great to watch. So if your not so sure if you wonna buy this film you should take my advice and get it now and you'll be thankfull you do.

A must buy for any serious Bruce Lee fan. If only the man lived long enough to complete what would have been the best movie ever made!!
