The Dragon Lives Again

 

a.k.a. Deadly Hands of Kung Fu


Twelve underworld assassins are trained to find and kill Bruce Lee!

 

"In the lexicon of cinematic weirdness, The Dragon Lives Again sits near the top, if not on the throne." - Uncle Jasper, SilverEmulsion.com


"Drugs had to be involved in bringing this masterpiece to the light of day." - Christopher Armstead, FilmCriticsUnited.com

 

"If you’re up for a b-movie, you need to see this. You cannot have more fun while watching a movie." - Josh Samford, VariedCelluloid.net

 

Bruce Lee is dead! Long live Bruce Lee! Not even slightly inconvenienced by the lack of an actual living Bruce Lee, opportunistic producers unleashed a tidal wave of Brucesploitation movies starring martial artists with names like Bruce Li, Bruce Le, and Bruce Leong. As the trend reached peak saturation the gimmicks got weirder: Bruce Lee vs Supermen, Bruce Lee vs the Clones of Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee vs. Gay Power! None of them are as weird, however, as DRAGON LIVES AGAIN which begins where Bruce's life ended. The now dead Lee finds himself in the underworld where after incurring the wrath of the King of the Underworld, he meets Popeye the Sailorman at a bar. Sound weird yet? A coalition of criminals led by "The Exorcist" and including such illustrious members as James Bond, Clint Eastwood, "The Godfather," Emmanuelle and Dracula begin plotting against the King and attempting to kill Bruce. This is zany, out-of-control genre filmmaking at its best. Expect wacky slapstick, weird sex jokes, and genuine kung fu fighting set to music stolen from other soundtracks.
