Fortunately this DVD collection redresses all that is bad about the movie and delights in and celebrates all that is good. Firstly, all the missing footage has now been restored including the (in the UK at least) missing Nuchaku duel with Dan Inasanto. Also included is an excellent commentary from HK movie expert Bey Logan which points out all the flaws in the movie and even gives information on each of the lookalikes, this serves to make you almost forgive the travesty your watching by making it entertaining.
The most important extra in this collection however is the 'Game of Death Revisited' feature which is quite simply brilliant as it contains all the original footage recut and edited to follow the story as originally envisaged by Bruce Lee himself, which presents the story of a martial artist's search for enlightenment, gone is the mediocre storyline of the 1978 'original'.Read more ›
But if you want fights, this DVD has it all. The nunchaku scene deleated from the VHS version for over 25 years is back as it should be, and as a result the final conflict is blissfully extended. The Kareem Abdul Jabbar fight is a bit strange, but the man is HUGE, and very fast, even if he does look a bit ungainly.
The second disc contains the beginnings of what bruce had planned for "Game of Death" in the first place: a tower, with a fighter of different style on each floor, with a prize or enlightenment at the top. And Bruce is not alone, he's one of a group of fighters attempting the ascent. And far from silent affairs, there is a lot of dialogue interspaced with the fights, and during the fights, that was cut from the released version.
Kareem was meant to be the "chaos" fighter, with no specific style!
Enjoy, you know you want to.
This DVD is truly amazing. HongKong Legends have 'again' provided a film with a marvelous picture quality, fantastic sound and put all its scraps and pieces of once censored scenes together into an absolute delight of a DVD. Although the 1978 version of the film on the first disc might be looked upon as a 'patchwork' of old footage, a lot of the action staged by Bruce's stand-in is of high quality, and a fight in a change room where Bruce delivers a series of high kicks at rapid speed at a fighter's head is brilliant. The nunchaku duel with Dan Inosanto is reinstated and is truly exciting, above all since this is where the 'real' Bruce enters the film.
However, the fantastic extras on the second disc of this DVD definitely do compensate for the possible weaknesses of the 1978 film: film material from Bruce's 'original' concept - a Tower of Death - is presented, revealing two other fighters helping Bruce to fight the adversaries on each floor of this tower. Just seeing the footage kindles the imagination about how the rest of the film would have looked like if Bruce had lived. Actually, this DVD offers a 40-minute 'reinvestigation' into how the ending of Bruce's film concept could have been, using the existing film material the way it was originally intended. One more thing, I think John Barry's music score for this film is lovely - romantic, tragic and exciting at the same time.
To sum up, any Bruce fan will embrace this DVD-specialty with utmost love and care. I do believe that Hong Kong Legends are beginning to assemble an ever-increasing number of faithful buyers.
Buy this, you will definitely not be disappointed!
