I Am Bruce Lee Reviews

Paul Chambers
Movie Chambers

"I Am Bruce Lee" is a documentary that mostly praises a mighty icon in the world of martial arts. It's a thoughtful repackaging of information we've seen before.

If you want to kick back and bask on Bruce Lee glory for ninety minutes, "I Am Bruce Lee" definitely fits the need.

Martial-arts fans will love this Bruce Lee tribute - cinephiles might be less satisfied.

Watchable documentary that's chiefly notable for its archive footage of the man himself, though it's also all rather one-sided and there's very little here that will be new to Bruce Lee fans.

How does a small Chinese guy become the movies' greatest martial artist of all time? That question drives this reverential documentary about the man with the one-inch punch.

It's safe to say that every inch of Bruce Lee's legacy has been covered and I Am Bruce Lee is just an excessive amount of icing added to an already well decorated cake.

Its odd agenda rather overshadows some fascinating archive footage and reminiscences from Lee's family.

Baggy, braying and kinda unhelpful, this one is strictly for paid-up Lee lovers.

Lee's legions of fans might get a kick out of this, but newcomers would do better to invest in a DVD of 'Fist of Fury'.
