Bruce Lee (the real one) has just died, but mad scientist Professor Lucas (Jon T.Benn) extracts some of the martial arts star's DNA and creates three clones, which he aptly names Bruce Lee number 1 (Dragon Lee), 2 (Bruce Le) and 3 (Bruce Lai). The professor of course has his own sinister motives for his Bruce Lees, but first he rents them out to law enforcement:

Bruce Lee number one takes down a film producer who also has his hands in gold smuggling.

Bruce Lee numbers 2 and 3 go to Thailand to hook up with a local Bruce Lee lookalike (Bruce Thai - really) to fight a mad scientist who has found a way to turn men into invulnerable bronze kung fu fighters to conquer the world (really). These bronze fighters are though allergic to a certain kind of grass, so when the Bruce Lees find out all they have to do to defeat the bronze men is to feed them grass (which the bronze men for some reason seem to love to chew on), the villain's days are numbered.

It's after this story that Professor Lucas goes off the rockers and he forces his Bruce Lees to fight one another to the death to determine who's the best - but his nurses side with the Bruce Lees and turn off the magnetitators (?) which seem to mindcontrol them - and now the Bruce Lees go after the Professor and kill everybody standing in their way, including their erstwhile martial arts instructors (includiong the omnipresent Bolo Yeung), and even if one of the Bruce lees is killed by a deathray, the others manage to bring the professor to justice ...

 

The title might suggest a trashy laugh riot, and for the most part, the movie delivers on that account. I mean, a film featuring cloned Bruce Lees, bronze martial artists and a plot so silly it's nothing short of hilarious, you're in for a treat.

That all said, the film isn't perfect in its badness. On top of everything its pacing sucks somewhat, and suggests that material from one or more other movies are cut into this one (e.g. the whole story about Bruce 1 taking on a gold smuggler doesn't have much to do with the rest of the film both stylistically and narratively). And then there is of course the extended fight scene that makes up the finale and that seems to go on forever - but unfortunately, it's not all that well-staged and well-filmed.

Despite all of its shortcomings though, Clones of Bruce Lee is pretty much a must for all bad movie lovers!
