      Very entertaining movie. The bus fight and the old man in the well with the family in the next room are my favorite parts. The old man at the bus stop was hilarious also.

        The Game of Death was the film Bruce Lee had planned to be the demonstration piece of his martial art Jeet Kune Do. The original plot involved Lee playing the role of Hai Tien, a retired champion martial artist who was confronted by the Korean underworld gangs. They tell him the story of a pagoda where guns are prohibited, and under heavy guard by highly skilled martial artists who are protecting something (which is not identified at all in any surviving material) held on its top level. The gang boss wants Hai to be a part of a group whose purpose is to retrieve said item. They would be the second group to try to do so as the first attempt with a previous group had failed. When Hai refuses, his younger sister and brother are kidnapped, forcing him to participate. Hai, as well as four other martial artists (two of which were played by James Tien and Chieh Yuan), then fight their way up a five-level pagoda, encountering a different challenge on each floor. The setting of the pagoda was at Beopjusa temple in Songnisan National Park in South Korea.

          Good movie. With certain intrigue, it makes the viewer interested in the plot. To discover what will be those tests and especially to see who or what is behind all this.

          The problem is that as you go through the movie, the implausibility of the argument is growing exponentially and at times can be somewhat absurd. But, it is entertaining in its entire length.

            I was really impressed by it! I thought it was funny, thrilling and gripping with a wonderfully tragic ending. Recommend!
