They Still Call Me Bruce Bruce Won arrives in America in search of an American G.I. who saved his life in the Korean War. He meets an orphan boy and together they land themselves in a string of outrageous situations. This high-strung farce culminates when a case of mistaken identity leads a gang of thugs to think Bruce is a karate master. They arrange a nationally-televised match which pits our hero against a monstrous brute, and Bruce is beaten to a bloody pulp…
Criminally underrated and hilarious 80’s comedy
They Still Call Me Bruce is sequel to comedy classic They Call Me Bruce and even though I enjoy the first film immensely ,this is way better and funnier .Bruce is looking for private Brown , who saved his life in Korea and gave him a cowboy boot.Johnny Yune( Bruce )wrote, starred and co directed this film and hats off to him ,as the film still makes me laugh 25 years later. While looking for private Brown , Bruce gets himself in trouble and becomes an instructor at a martial arts studio. Knowing no martial arts in no problem for Bruce as he’s got good game. In the last film he was a buffoon, well I guess that didn’t change.This time Bruce gets to be a hero, taking on Ogre from Revenge Of The Nerds in the tournament at the end of the film .Bruce (and his stuntman) sock it to him, as he saves McCleans studio, busts the bad guys,finds private Brown and gets the girl.Also Bruce befriends a student who lives in a juvenile home with his dog Kato, which was also seen in Stallone flick Over The Top.Classic.
Pure 80’s Cheese
They Still Call Me Bruce And I luv every last minute of it
I saw this movie as a youngen about a million times on cable in the 80’s
Through the 90’s I had about 10 years to totally forget about this movie that I had liked so much
Well when I re-discovered this film in 2001 I had to get my hands on it ASAP again to see if it would stand the test of time
Guess What?It did and then some
I like this movie now more then ever(one of my top 5)
It never takes itself seriously and never really drags as the story is constantly moving
the entire movie is based around Bruce(Johnny Yune) trying to find Private Brown who saved his life during the Korean war
Throughout the movie Bruce is constantly side tracked from his pursuit of Private Brown
The ending is pretty good to as it makes you think it’s going to end on a 50% down note as Bruce wins the tournament which is the plus but Private Brown the man he’s been looking for turns out to be the evil crime lord…or does he 😉
Overall I don’t think anyone today would enjoy this movie
But fans of feel-good cheesey 80’s movies should appreciate this.
