2021 Cult Movie Challenge
Week 6: Brucesploitation Week
Bruce Lee Fights Back from the Grave opens with Bruce Lee look-alike, Bruce K.L. Lea, jumping out of Bruce Lee's grave. That's the only moment in the movie that comes close to living up to the amazing title and poster. The poster art is so great that they even show it on screen after the title card.
However, the story has nothing to do with someone returning from the grave and is lacking in winged creatures. Bruce K.L. Lea is also a very poor Bruce Lee substitute. He doesn't have the charisma, screen presence, physical skill or looks to pass for Lee for even a second of film. So we're just left with a cheap, inept kung fu movie with poorly choreographed and edited fight scenes. There's no way the movie could have lived up to that poster but it could at least have had more interesting fights scenes.
