&quot;You&#39;ve offended me, you&#39;ve offended my family!&quot; I just cracked up so hard that my tears just rolled out of my eyes. If I were to tell you that this is one of my best experience at the SIFF to date, then you would probably think I&#39;m out of my mind, unless of course, you&#39;ve watched this movie. Actor Dustin Nguyen was on hand to introduce the movie since he had a bit part and is one of the invited guests to the festival for the Vietnamese film The Rebel, he shared that this film is actually director Justin Lin&#39;s labour of love. Those of us in Singapore would be familiar with Justin&#39;s previous movie, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (admit it, you have the Teriyaki Boyz set as your ringtone), and is now currently in production with FF4 (with the return of Vin Diesel and most of the original cast).<br/><br/>Finishing the Game sets itself in the wake of Bruce Lee&#39;s death, where the production of The Game of Death got hung up, pending how to move the film forward. As we now know, old footages of Bruce from previous movies, and stand-ins were used to try and complete principle photography so that it could still be released and audiences could lap it up when it is all Bruce Lee the master himself taking care of things up along the pagoda. So herein lies the premise for Finishing the Game, as a mockumentary looking for the next possible Bruce Lee stand in.<br/><br/>And the process of doing so is genuinely hilarious, playing to various stereotypes and a throwback to the cheesiness (in hindsight of course) of the 70s with the diverse group of actors and actor wannabes turning up for casting and auditioning. In fact, every character featured has a likability factor, and you can&#39;t help but to laugh along, and laugh at them. The major favourite of mine is Breeze Loo (Roger Fan), a two-bit Asian actor who&#39;s a dead ringer for Lee, and the name being a mimicking of the various &quot;Bruce Lee&quot; incantations that erupted in the video-movie market with Lee&#39;s demise, each starring in various action movies copying Lee&#39;s signature movements.<br/><br/>Watching the &quot;spaghetti&quot; type productions starring Breeze Loo, never fails to bring on rip-roaring laughter from the audience, and the thing is, it&#39;s pretty fun! Sung Kang stars as a happy-go-lucky, always smiling Cole Kim, a struggling actor who can&#39;t shake off his smiley face, and Raja (MOusa Kraish), who thinks he&#39;s half/Chinese. Dustin Nyugen&#39;s own role in the movie, Troy Poon, is yet another actor in a fictionalized spoof of 70s detective movies. His role in Golden Gate Guns has to be seen to be believed, and that one-liner of his about doing other people&#39;s laundry, makes him a one-liner hit wonder.<br/><br/>But it&#39;s not all fun and laughter throughout the movie, as underlying it is a very keen look at the Hollywood of the 70s, where &quot;coloured&quot; folk often get sidelined, or cast to play the villains, bit roles, supporting characters and the likes, I mean, a television series like &quot;Kung Fu&quot; with David Carradine in the lead, speaks volumes It&#39;s not all that serious actually as it skirts around these issues, but you get the point real quickly, about discrimination and unequal opportunities.<br/><br/>All in all, it split my sides good enough for me to warrant a DVD purchase once it&#39;s out (has it?). And oh yeah, see if you can spot rapper MC Hammer in it too!

Done in the style of a 1970s mockumentary, &quot;Finishing the Game&quot; is based on the premise that, when Bruce Lee died in 1973 at the age of 32, he left behind twelve minutes of footage for a movie entitled &quot;The Game of Death.&quot; Determined to bring Lee&#39;s final dream to fruition, a group of dedicated filmmakers set out to find a replacement for the star in the hopes of finishing the project. &quot;Finishing the Game&quot; is a fictionalized account of that search (the actual movie was released in 1978).<br/><br/>Unfortunately, beyond its spot-on &#39;70s fashions and hairstyles, oh-so-groovy soundtrack and overall air of genial good-naturedness, &quot;Finishing the Game&quot; offers little of quality for anyone craving a good behind-the-scenes movie parody. Lacking both polish and finesse, the movie represents a major comedown for director Justin Lee after his stunning triumph with &quot;Better Luck Tomorrow&quot; a few years back. The half-hearted Josh Diamond screenplay scarcely makes an effort at being funny, and the concept itself is simply too thin to be successfully stretched out over even a relatively meager 84-minute-long running time.<br/><br/>Barely flash-in-the-pan cameo appearances by the likes of James Franco, MC Hammer and Ron Jeremy do little to support an otherwise likable cast. And there isn&#39;t even any decent martial arts action to make the movie much fun for fans of the genre being satirized.

Just watched this movie in a company of friends and got extremely disappointed with it. I first saw a trailer a couple of months ago and though it was a great premise - yes, a little goofy and maybe too post-modern for it&#39;s own good, but at least it seemed that it was a fun thing to watch.<br/><br/>The premise of the film is simple and is shown to you on the first minute of the movie - Bruce Lee dies while filming &quot;Game of Death&quot;, he leaves behind 12 minutes of footage that a studio producer is willing to exploit. They start a nation-wide search for a double, so that they can film &quot;the rest&quot; of the movie. And so enter the bunch of hopefuls wishing to take the place of the master or just get a first acting job.<br/><br/>The jokes are tongue-in-cheek, but the problem with them is that they are simply not funny. The whole movie is filmed in a pseudo-documentary style that has become a most overused technique in the last 10 years of independent movies. The situations and plot lines are sometimes cute, but mostly predictable and definitely not intelligent enough. The story actually looks like a long episode of &quot;Office&quot; (the US version), and you have a twitch to start channel surfing instead.<br/><br/>I&#39;m not sure how many Bruce Lee fans are still out there, but this film has very little to do with his work and just takes the premise and runs with it - unfortunately the end result is bland and devoid of any creative spark.
