Other mistake: In the intense outdoor battle scene at the end, when Bruce kicks a guy in the face three times in a row, one of the extras in the background cracks up laughing.

Other mistake: In the briefing scene just after the main credits, Braithwaite is showing Lee a film of Han and his allies. What we are seeing is footage spliced into the film, as the shadows of the 16 millimetre projector's reels on Bruce Lee's face and the wall shows empty reels with no film in them at all.

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene with Oharra, Bruce Lee was actually cut quite badly on the hand. In later scenes in the film he can actually be seen with a bandage round the injured hand.

Revealing mistake: When Han is killed by Bruce Lee, and the door is spinning, you can see the belt that holds Han to the door.

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene between Han and Bruce Lee toward the end of the movie, Bruce Lee knocks Han to the ground. The shot changes to show a frontal view of Bruce as he lands a crushing kick on Han. It looks like Han was replaced with a dummy for this shot, as Bruce's kick seems to just send Han across the room. As I reviewed the scene, I could see that Han was actually a dummy of some sort .

Audio problem: When Williams is checking out the tray of meat he points and says "hmm, No, I really don't think so." His words don't match up to his mouth.


Continuity mistake: During the fight scene in the mirror room, Lee starts to punch and kick the mirrors. During several shots, Lee is wearing shoes that fully cover the top of his foot. In others, he is wearing a pair of shoes that have a V cut down the top of his foot which you can clearly see with his white socks.

Other mistake: When you watch the movie with Spanish subtitles, when Williams sees Lee on a tree or something he says, "Ah, a human fly". Yet the subtitles say, "La araƱa humana", which translates to "A human spider".

Revealing mistake: In Han's first scene, when he enters the banquet hall to welcome fighters he holds both arms out and the fingers on his solid metal hand are spread. Later on after beating Williams to death he takes off his glove to reveal his metal hand. Look at the glove before he does this; he moves his fingers.

Other mistake: When Williams is fighting Parsons, watch for a shot when Williams backs up against the camera - he actually bumps into it and it narrows the picture somewhat. This is most noticeable in the widescreen version.

Continuity mistake: Someone got a little makeup happy. In Han's office, Williams beats up a few guards and then Han takes things into his own hands (or hand as it turns out.) As they fight, there is a shot of Williams head-on just before Han hits his birdcage. Williams has a bruise under his eye. But why? Han hasn't hit him yet and neither did any of the guards. Nor was he hit in the face during his match with Parsons earlier in the film. I suppose it could be a shadow but it doesn't look like it.

Revealing mistake: When John Saxon is shown through the dungeon by Shih Kien, a tramp looks glumly at him through the bars. This exact same shot is used later during Bruce Lee's fight with the guards.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, Roper knocks out Bolo, Han's right-hand man. But when we see Han sending his men after Lee and Roper in the next wide shot, Bolo's body is nowhere to be seen. (01:28:40)

Revealing mistake: When Bruce Lee is fighting the guards in the secret underground lair, he uses a staff to beat up the guards but there is one moment where he whacks a guard who was about 5 metres away even though the staff was only about 2 metres long.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce has the battle underground he has black socks on, but when he is captured and they show him being untied outside he has white socks on.

Continuity mistake: When they're fighting in the mirror place, Bruce gets slashed on the face. The space between the cuts is narrower than the cuts he gets from the same claw when he gets slashed on the belly.

Continuity mistake: In the banquet sequence, John Saxon is shown sitting with a glass in his hand. The level of liquid in the glass fluctuates alarmingly from shot to shot.

Continuity mistake: During the fight scene near the end of the film between Han's white clad henchmen and the black dressed good guys, there is a shot of a guy spin kicking another that is shown 3 times. Many other shots are shown more than once, from close up or a slightly different angle.

Continuity mistake: Approximately 14 minutes into the film, Bruce Lee's sister kicks a guy in the groin. He then goes on to fall twice.


Continuity mistake: During the flashback with Su Lin: Just after she starts running away from her attackers she trips and falls on a patch of dirt. Everything around is concrete and that patch is the only dirt visible. Isn't it lucky she had something soft to land on?

Revealing mistake: In the dungeon fight, Lee knocks one of Han's henchmen onto the bars of the cell and the occupants grab him. It can be seen that the "metal" of the cell door is bending.

Revealing mistake: When Han's daughters/bodyguards are throwing daggers at the apples in the banquet room, one girl just blows the dagger out of her palm and catches the apple in mid air impressively. However a keen eye can see the wire attached to the dagger that pulls it from her hand (slow-mo is not necessary).

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: During the scene where we see Bruce Lee's sister being harassed by a group of men, at one point she kicks a man in the groin, he starts to fall and she turns around. Then the angle changes and again she turns around as the man falls.

Jack Vaughan

Visible crew/equipment: Just before we see Bruce's sister commit suicide, there is a shot of all Ohara's goons running towards the shack where she is trapped, and in this shot the shadow of the camera is cast on all the men who run by it.

Jack Vaughan

Visible crew/equipment: The head of a crewmember is visible during the mirror room fight. During the part where Lee is slowly moving across a mirror (just before he turns down the corridor and Han comes up behind and slashes his back), look down the corridor where Bruce is about to turn down and you should see it. Also after Han slashes his back Lee turns around and goes back down the corridor and you can see this crewmember again but more.

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: Parsons is fighting Williams. There's no bruise on Parsons' face to begin with. He falls with his back to the floor, and magically develops a bruise on his face after he gets up.


Continuity mistake: After Bruce has scared the radio controllers from their booth with the cobra we see him calmly resting his palm on his cheek. Cut to another shot of the radio guys splitting and his palm is more at his temple. The shot goes back to him and it's on his cheek again.

Visible crew/equipment: During the banquet the camera pans around the room to various scenes, one of which is Roper having a drink and next to him is a circular steel ornament that reflects all the stagelights that are pointing at the action.

Jack Vaughan

Revealing mistake: When Han kills Williams with a final blow, he slips off his glove, which reveals a metallic hand. When the camera zooms in on his hand, you can see the fingers wobble slightly. Metal will not do that. It's either his hand or some form of rubber/silicone.


Visible crew/equipment: At the first tournament fight, a woman holds a bowl of fruit up to Han and reflected in the underside of the bowl are the feet of the camera operator.

Jack Vaughan

Factual error: During the flashback explaining what happened to Su Lin she has an ugly bruise on her face less than a minute after being hit. Bruises usually take at least a few hours to develop like that.

Revealing mistake: When Lee's sister is seen running from the men pursuing her, she falls down and you can see the stunt mat she falls on. It looks like the makers tried to cover it up with some dirt but if you look at the lower left corner you can see the green fabric of the mattress where they missed a spot.

Jack Vaughan

Revealing mistake: After the four guards have been killed by Bolo we see the body of one being dragged away by his feet, strangely the "dead" guard still has one of his arms raised and even raises it a bit higher a few seconds later.

Jack Vaughan

Continuity mistake: Just before Roper fights Bolo there is a shot of Bruce backing away with his arms at his sides, then the shot changes to a POV from Bolo and instantly Bruce now has his arms folded.

Jack Vaughan

Audio problem: You hear a clunking of metal when Hanh hits Williams, especially when Williams throws the side kick. Clunking of metal can only be heard when metals clash. Even when metal hits rock, a different sound is made. So when flesh or bone clashes with metal, this sound cannot be made.


Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie Bruce Lee fights underground with a track suit bottom type trousers. He is then captured, and in the next scene he is wearing baggy flared tracksuit trousers.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end of the movie, Bruce Lee knocks Han to the ground and then the shot changes to show a frontal view of Bruce. He then lands a kick to Han's head that sends Han flying across the room. As Bruce moves towards the camera you can see a pointy object on the left side of the screen that a crew member must be holding, because in the next shot there is no pointy black thing in Bruce Lee's path. (01:34:30)

Houma R L Dave

Continuity mistake: In the fight with O'Hara, Lee sidekicks O'Hara and sends him flying over backwards into the crowd. The brown bottle is left standing upright. When they cut back to O'Hara now reaching for the bottle, suddenly it's on it's side spilling the contents. (01:20:00)

Continuity mistake: When Bruce Lee and Han first jump up at one another, Han slashes Lee across the stomach with his 4-knife hand, but Lee only has 3 blood scars across his abs for the rest of the film.

Other mistake: When Williams fights Han's guards in the office, at one point he kicks a guard back towards a window, the guard stumbles and then for no reason just dives backwards out the window. A bit over dramatic.

Jack Vaughan

Factual error: When Han is fighting Williams, Williams throws a side kick to Han. Then he lifts up his hand to block - supposedly a metal hand - but his hand does not move one bit. It is not possible, due to that kind of force, for a hand to not move. Even if a hand is metal, the elbow will pivot. As well as the fact that after the kick, you see Williams' face is in pain. This is not possible as he is wearing soled shoes and kicking side on.
