not entirely accurate as a biography
but still a very enjoyable film
jason scott lee is excellent in the role
definitely worth the watch
A beautiful masterpiece of the life of Bruce lee with impressive stunts. And an awesome soundtrack.
This movie takes more liberty in some elements of Bruce Lee's life in order to make the movie actually enjoyable but also to be a good film unlike actual biopics which can be boring. Though the heart of this movie is how Jason Scott Lee portrays a Bruce Lee that is pretty much a normal guy, he's human and has faults and trials to overcome in life - be it racism, combating old dogmatic views of martial arts, and the cancer that is Hollywood's movie / studio system. The liberties are more so in how some events take place but are more lovingly so - such as instances in Bruce's life where he gets into fights with thugs being shot impressively close to the actual fights and action scenes from Bruce Lee's other films like Way of the Dragon, The Big Boss, The Chinese Connection, and Enter the Dragon. The second half of the heart of this movie however is most certainly Bruce Lee's wife Linda Lee who at the point of her introduction also somewhat becomes the main character. Which makes sense as the film takes inspiration from her book written about Bruce. But it leads to the film taking the unique perspective of Linda as an observer of Bruce's success as an action star which feels incredibly vital to understanding Bruce's life. It's definitely worth buying and worth watching.
Absolutely excellent. I don't cry a lot, but did through this movie. The music score was inspirational also. You should see it.
I remember this coming out in 1993 and can't believe it's taken me until 2016 to watch it. A thoroughly enjoyable movie and more than just another martial arts flick. Yes, all of that high kicking and punching is there, but the theme of race is also discussed throughout too. A little more emphasis on the Green Hornet days would have made it better for meJason Scott Lee and Lauren Holly play Bruce and Linda superbly.
good historical/bio pic
Biographical tale about the life of martial arts legend Bruce Lee. The screenplay focuses more on his personal relationship with his wife rather than on his career. The characters seem thin and by the end of the movie I felt no emotional connection to Lee's life. It's more of a paint by numbers docudrama but it could've been much more.
Strictly works by the charisma of its lead actor who manages to match the legend himself. Otherwise it is quite orthodox, rusty in its action sequences, melodramatic and downright corny at times.
Interesting take on Bruce lee's life with good action scenes. The only problem I had with the film was the fact that they got Lee's death date wrong.
Creo que el único Biopic que califican por sí mismos como película de aventuras y acción. Realmente remarcable y destacable.
