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 scenes with the yellow tracksuit.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Both Sammo Hung and Casanova Wong have a great fight scene each (Wong only in the HK version), but that's it.
  • Narm: Did Lee absolutely have to be so noisy during the aforementioned fight scene?
  • 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.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Robert Clouse and Raymond Chow did not go with Bruce Lee's original storyline and replaced it with a generic revenge story. Strangly enough, Bruceploitation movie Goodbye Bruce Lee: His Last Game of Death (filmed three years earlier) got the "Bruce Lee fights up the pagoda to find a treasure" part right.
