Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story Reviews
Jason Scott Lee (in no relation to Bruce) truly shines as Bruce Lee. While he might be physically bigger, you immediately forget any differences, and truly believe he is Bruce Lee. He also has great chemistry with Lauren Holly, who plays Linda Lee Cadwell (Bruce's widow).
Yes, there are many inaccuracies in this film, and yes, the whole subplot of Lee being haunted by a demon seems rather silly when reading it on paper (though I perfectly understand the meaning behind it), but the plot moves along nicely, and demonstrates Lee's message well.
The film also has some great fight scenes, and lush cinematography, plus one of the best film scores I have heard from a film of the 90s.
Whether you love this movie or not, you have to admit, it does Bruce Lee justice a lot better than the travesty known as Birth of the Dragon.
The actor had Lee's physic which impressed me, but his portrayal of Lee didn't. This movie focused on all the wrong things about his life. 2/5
also stars Michael Learned, Nancy Kwan, Kay Tong Lim, Sterling Macer, Ric Young and Sven Ole Thorsen.
