According to Roy Horan, filming of Game Of Death 2 took place in 1979, the year after the original Game Of Death was released and was filmed largely in Japan due to the original film being very popular there upon its release. See more »

The late 90s Universe Laser DVD released in Hong Kong had a unique "hybrid" Cantonese track, in that it maintained the original Cantonese voice acting, but used the music from the international English dub. The Mandarin track followed a similar pattern. See more »
Shambolic - the most entertaining film in existence
I'll just say that the film is constructed so poorly that it is outrageously funny. I watched it with friends, and I recommend everyone does the same. If you have even half of a sense of humour, you'll be laughing for literally 80% of the film.
Everything about the film is wrong: trying to resurrect Bruce Lee with scraps of footage and a guy that "kinda" looks like him; having a man dress up as a lion and go toe to toe with the lead character; having sets that belong in a star trek episode; having jesus play the bad duy. The best/worst parts are the "twists," which are so inconsequential they needn't have bothered. The makers could not have made a funnier film had they tried. Any film that includes the line: "I may be a jung-fu master, but I need cash!" must be essential viewing.
