The unexpected death of Bruce Lee, a world-wide phenomenon and established movie star, came at the zenith of his popularity. Having already shot scenes for his upcoming movie "Game of Death", studio heads decided to complete the film by launching a search for his replacement attracting hopefuls from all around the world. This indie spoof from IFC Films is an uproarious, poignant, unpredictable and action-packed re-imagining of that casting process for Lee's replacement and examines the leaps and bounds Asians have taken in media representation - or have they?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A faux documentary grounded in ethnicity and mired in absurdity, Finishing the Game is a terrific idea still waiting to be fashioned into a real movie.
Rotten: The film completely misses what should have been its real target -- the filming of Game of Death, a martial-arts campfest worthy of Edward D. Wood Jr.
Rotten: The search for the next Bruce Lee goes comically awry, but not comically enough, in Finishing the Game, a rice-paper-thin spoof that tries to poke fun at the endangered Hollywood species that is the Asian male actor.
Rotten: Intermittently funny at best, but mostly full of dead air.
