YMMV: Game of Death
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The crooks try to kill Billy Lo by shooting him with what he believes to be a prop gun during the filming of his latest movie. A number of years later, Bruce's son Brandon would die from a malfunctioning prop gun. Yyyyyyyyeah....
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Just here for the fight scene with the yellow tracksuit.
  • Narm: Did Lee absolutely have to be so noisy during the aforementioned fight scene?
  • Riddle for the Ages: What exactly was at the top of the pagoda? None of the surviving source material explains it so cue the Wild Mass Guessing.
  • Special Effect Failure: A cardboard cutout of Bruce's face placed upon a mirror to act as Billy Lo's reflection in one infamous scene, for starters.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Sure are a lot of white people running things in Hong Kong, while all the Chinese aside from Billy are lowly employees.
