Bruceploitation titles

Postby Kwai Chang » Sun Jul 29, 2007 2:44 pm

I've noticed that some lesser known Bruceploitation films are available via a US budget label called Kung Fu Theater. I'm interested in the following:

'Return Of Bruce'

'My Name Called Bruce'

'Cobra'

Any views on these titles? I know the first two star Bruce Le. The actual cast for 'Return Of Bruce' looks quite good.

Return Of Bruce

Postby Kwai Chang » Sun Jul 29, 2007 6:36 pm

I watched a few clips of the film online and it looks good. The credits have Le billed as 'Kenneth Riviero'. I guess this was to promote him in the Philippines, as the film was made there.

Anybody know anything about 'My Name Called Bruce'? I think I read somewhere that it was a Korean production.

Thanks for the still Pete. Info about the movie is scarce. I read it was filmed in Korea by Joseph Kong aka Velasco in 1978. He seems to have directed a lot of Le's output.

I'll give the film a look along with 'Return Of Bruce'.

Ive got a question that doesnt answer the original topic but Ive been wondering about a Bruceploitation title for a while now. I dont know very much about it other than that the finale fight was between Bruce Li and I think Lung Fei. They where fighting somewhere with like orange sand around them (dont think it was a desert but something like it maby?).

[Quote=Whirlwind] That could be 'Deadly Strike' ? Lung Fei wore an eye patch in that film & fought Bruce Li in a sandy enviroment.It`s a pretty good film also starring Chen sing & Mooseface.[/Quote]

Thats a wicked movie Whirlwind but its not the movie Im thinking about. Thanks for trying though. If I remember correct its more like a modern style movie with "modern" (then not now) clothes.

It sounds like 'The Legend Of Bruce Lee' from 1976.

I watched 'Return Of Bruce' last night and found it very enjoyable. I think it's probably Le's best film and has some interesting fights. I especially liked when he took on some thugs in a Kwoon using Monkey style.

Fantastic stills Pete. Much appreciated.

You were definitely right about this film. It is Le at his [B]best[/B]. I really enjoyed it. In fact, I'm going to watch it again tonight! Surely the sign of a great movie.

Bruce Le & Wong Shun Leung

Postby Kwai Chang » Fri Aug 10, 2007 4:05 pm

Here are three photos of Bruce Le with Wong Shun Leung (Bruce Lee's main Wing Chun Sifu). I believe these were taken during filming of 'Bruce's Deadly Fingers' in 1976. Le is seen using the same kind of electric muscle stimulator used by Bruce Lee.

The Region 1 dvd of the movie ends abruptly, as if a cut was made. Are all prints like this?
