You! Killed! My! Teacher!!!

Martial artist Bruce Lee was one of the world's greatest action stars. Director Robert Clouse was an untalented hack. Exactly why they worked together on Enter The Dragon is a mystery, but thanks to Lee's total control of the action scenes it became a classic. When Lee died, Clouse scooped up the 12 minutes of finished Lee footage of the planned follow-up, and constructed the abysmal Game of Death, a Frankenstein's monster of a movie made from dead bodyparts and Lee look-alikes. 30 years later, Bruce is finally avenged by Justin Lin's mockumentary Finishing the Game, about the imagined casting sessions of Clouse's disasterpiece. Check out the pitch-perfect 70's vibes in this trailer...
