Audience Reviews for Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story

I'm a such fan of Bruce Lee since 1973's Enter the Dragon and really interested to watch the biography of the legendary martial artist star at the first time.
Jason Scott Lee (no relation) is impressive as Bruce Lee and he successfully captures his mannerisms, attitude and even his fighting style, extremely convincingly. He trained the art of Jeet Kun Do by one of Bruce Lee's real-life students. And Lee and Lauren Holly, as Bruce's wife Linda, share a remarkable chemistry together and are certainly a credit to their subjects.
Director Rob Cohen does his best work with this film showing that he could easily direct fight scenes and able that he could balance it out with personal drama.
Check out Bruce Lee's daughter, Shannon, appeared cameo in this biography film as a singer. Originally Bruce's son, Brandon, was offered the part of his father in this, but declined and unfortunately later died before this film was completed. And I'm very pleased to see at the end of credit sending the regret of Brandon's death during the same year while this film released.

The Biopic of Bruce Lee's life. The inspiring, strong willed man, whose mind, body, soul and strength led him to become the huge legend he is known as today.

A truly great portrayal by Jason Scott Lee as Bruce Lee in the film, who fit the role, so well physcially.

The story reveals a true insight into the prejudice surrounding the combined cultures during the era and the strength of Bruce and Linda's relationship through their time together.

A man who united people boyond traditions.
