This film, was poorly put together posthumously with only about 15-20 minutes of real Bruce Lee near the closing scenes of the film. Bruce Lee, as "Billy Lo," goes from one level to the next of a pagoda, meeting and fighting a challenger at each level, ending with, the famous basketball player, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The real footage was filmed in 1972, prior to stopping production, in order to go and film Enter the Dragon.
The rest of the film, was poorly done with superimposed images of Bruce Lee's face.
So the only worth, is that short segment of Bruce Lee, that he filmed for a future production, that he wrote and directed.
If it were not for the real footage, I would not have rated this film as high as I did. This rating is only based upon the actual footage of Bruce Lee.
November 27, 2017, would have been his 77th birthday.
