Corrected entry: Lee, eager to teach Parsons a lesson, suggests they use a small boat to go to an island to demostrate his "art of fighting without fighting." First of all, for Parsons to even accept this is just about absurd on his part. The little boat doesn't have any oars nor does it have an outboard motor. It couldn't have gotten to that island in the first place! But despite all of this, Parson gets into the boat. As Lee lets the boat out away from the main craft, it begins to fill with water and the sides fall apart (still think the boat could get to that island?) The main boat is still moving along straight ahead but the tiny boat actually turns it's side to face the main boat. If it was being pulled, it would still face forward from the tension on the rope. I suppose it's possible that once the crew saw what Lee was doing, they stopped the motor to watch but the engine sounds don't suggest this. They keep humming as if the boat is in motion. Hmm. Maybe this boat COULD reach the island after all. It seems to defy the laws of physics.
Corrected entry: Towards the start of the movie, flashbacks are used to show how each of the three stars ended up at Han's island. Williams, Played by Jim Kelly, gets into a scuffle with two police. Williams is carrying two bags, which he drops to deal with the two police. After he beats up the two cops, he jumps into their car and speeds away, lights flashing; and no bags! Now, back to Williams on a Chinese junk, heading to Han's island, with the two bags he left behind.
Corrected entry: When Oharra breaks the two bottles off each other, only one breaks but in the next scene we see two bottle necks.
Corrected entry: When Bolo goes to punish the guards for not doing their job, he intends to kill every one of them. He steps on the first guy's neck and snaps it. He then pounds on the second guy and breaks his neck by pulling back on his head as he lies on the ground. He then turns to smack the third guy and forearms him upside the head. He does some sort of spin move and this guy falls to the ground. Either someone forgot to add in a sound effect of a breaking bone or the third guard is faking as he lies on the ground. Perhaps in this case, it would be a good idea.
Corrected entry: Pick any scene in the film that shows large groups of men standing in rows punching back and forth. You can easily pick out at least two or three extras who are not in time with the others. There's even one that is standing there doing his own thing punching wildly like no tomorrow.
Corrected entry: There are several extras in the white GI's who give big wide smiles whenever Lee is fighting. I realize that Lee made himself to be quite an amazing hero to the many of the martial artist extras but it seems out of character for them to crack big smiles at a guy who is, at the end of the film, their boss's enemy!
Corrected entry: In the fight scene between Lee and Oharra, Oharra is knocked to the ground with a single punch, and as he gets up, the audience behind him is applauding in slow motion. Several of them also sit down in slow motion.
Corrected entry: Several of the men in the scene above do not have their fists clenched tightly as they punch. You can see the light shining through their fingers. No one trains like this.
