Bruce Lee's shocking death left legions of stunned fans and a legacy of 12 minutes from his unfinished "Game of Death."
This comedy spoof about the search for "the new Bruce Lee." The film imagines an out-of-touch movie producer hiring his son, a would-be director, to complete the Bruce Lee movie GAME OF DEATH, only twelve minutes of which had been shot before the star's sudden death. "Finishing the Game" purports to be a behind-the-scenes documentary that follows a number of hopeful actors through the process as the filmmakers attempt to re-cast the role. Along the way, Lin proves he is a master of both period detail and social commentary. Indeed, Lin's take-no-prisoners attitude lampoons both Hollywood's uncomfortable relationship with race and the self-importance of filmmaking itself.
