Your Opinions and Comments

8 / 10
If Bruce Lee were alive today I wonder what he would think about the current crop of martial artists who clutter up the screen today cause this movie demonstrates why he was the greatest.

Tragically while filming Game Of Death, Lee died and thus in some scenes a double was used. As with all of the releases of Bruce Lee the picture is good but not great and the sound not bad. John Barry does an excellent job with the score.

The extras are excellent some of the best I`ve seen on a DVD and will take some beating. I especially enjoyed the retrospective.

This is not Bruce Lee`s finest but if you like martial arts and just great action movies in general you will not be disappointed.
