Vivian Emery: Well, I don't want to rain on your parade Mr. Lee. But the world needs hamburgers, not Judo.
Bruce Lee: Kung Fu.
Vivian Emery: Whatever. But what about children, that's what marriage is about, children, and what will they be? They won't be white, and they won't be oriental. They'll be some kind of half-breed and will not be accpted by either side.
Bruce Lee: But, they'll be American. Linda's American, I'm an American.
Vivian Emery: No. you're an American citizen Mr. Lee.

The greatest legend ever in martial arts history
20 April 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

This movie was amazing. Before I saw this movie, I had an idea of who Bruce Lee was. I knew he was one of the greatest martial arts masters of all time and I knew he was in a couple of movies. But, I had know idea about the kind of man he was and the struggles he had to go through. He is, in my eyes, an amazing human being with an unimaginable amount of courage and a whole lot of heart. This movie showed me that much. The score is also one of the best I have heard in my life. All in all, this movie is an inspiring take on a legend's life. Great story, great music, great human being.... What more can I say? Amazing!

A solid 8/10
