Film Preview: Finishing the Game (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B

Review: The brightness of the yellow doesn’t have a thematic association with the production. The various individuals on the poster in “kung fu” positions is more closely aligned and the faint image of Bruce Lee in the background are more appropriate. But what makes this poster most interesting is the way it associates the title, subject and tagline together into one concept.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: “Who Will Be” Finishing the Game should probably be the full title, though it isn’t. The concept of this mockumentary examining what the process of selecting the replacement for the late Bruce Lee for the film Game of Death seems only moderately amusing from this trailer, which evokes a wee bit too much cheesiness for my taste.

Oscar Prospects:

Bruce Lee was never even considered for an Oscar, so I see no reason why the Academy would suddenly decide to recognize him so late after his death with this ludicrous comedy.
