Quotes

Bruce Lee: When I was a kid I had all these crazy ideas, I wanted to show the world the beauty of our culture, I wanted to give them a hero, but a Chinese hero, but I want something else now, I want to stop breaking my wife's heart, I want to play with my children without having to look at the clock, they're American, I need to go back to America or I lose them, if I lose them, nothing means anything

Superb Character Portrayel by Jason Scott Lee
20 January 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film as a stand alone kung fu movie would be worthy of your attention, as it is very enjoyable and well made. The thing that makes it special is Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of the legend that is Bruce Lee.

He successfully captures his mannerisms, attitude and even his fighting style, extremely convincingly (a truly remarkable feat of acting ability.)

Although dramatised to heighten your viewing pleasure, the story actually follows the events in Bruce Lee's life and shows us the man behind the martial arts, covering his inner turmoils and personal struggles as well as his famous physical ability.

A great movie, befitting the legend that is Bruce Lee.

8/10
