Trivia

When Bruce Lee is preparing to fight the martial artist chosen to stop him from teaching the "Guai Lo", their warmup is obviously derived from The Way of the Dragon (1972): Lee is exercising his flexibility, while his opponent, like Chuck Norris, is instead practicing a series of "rehearsed routines."

Goofs

During the ice house fight scene while filming "The Big Boss", it is easy to see that the circular ice saw is much thicker than an actual saw blade and lacks teeth. See more »

Quotes

Johnny Sun: [wanting to challenge Bruce to a 60 second fight] I've beaten him before, I will beat him again.

good flick, but inaccurate
17 May 2003 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

I really liked Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of Bruce Lee, but I noticed many inaccuracies in the story. If I had not seen the AMC special on Lee last year, I would not have a problem.

-according to Linda Lee, Bruce was not hurt when competing for the right to teach whoever he wanted to. He hurt himself when he didn't stretch properly for a workout in 1970. That was the big inaccuracy

-Bruce auditioned for another role in early 1965 before the role of Kato was offered to him.

  • other roles he took in America were completely ignored: "Marlowe", his


appearances on "Longstreet", etc...the movie went right from 1967 to 1972 within a minute

If you want to see a really good special on Lee, as well as see lost footage from a project that was butchered after he died, check out the AMC documentary.
