"The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering" - Bruce Lee

EXPLOSIVE, BRUTAL AND ACTION-PACKED - THIS IS THE EPIC TRUE STORY OF A MARTIAL ARTS LEGEND

When Bruce Lee was born on the 27th of November 1940 in San Francisco's Chinatown, little did his parents know that their infant son would go on to become the greatest martial arts icon that the world had ever seen.

The Legend Of Bruce Lee will take you on an incredible journey into the life of a man who knew no boundaries. From his days surviving brutal street fights in 1950s Hong Kong to his meteoric rise to fame as a martial arts screen icon, through to his tragic and mysterious death at the age of 32; his story has never before been told so faithfully or so completely.

In this spectacularly choreographed epic movie, produced by Bruce's daughter, Shannon Lee, you can re-live the legend's entire astounding life story.

Welcome to The Legend Of Bruce Lee.

DO NOT watch this film if your a fan of bruce lee's, me and my friends watched this the other day & it looked as if it had been filmed buy some college students which would make this film slightly easier to watch, cinematography & music was terrible also it was filmed in english then dubbed into chinese.
3hrs is way too long for this film, the only good thing about this is the fighting.

 Very well done... But..

I really enjoyed this. In its original form it's an epic 50 part Chinese tv series. Here it's cut down to a still almost 3hr run time. I think it's this cutting down that is its only draw back. Sure, some things look cheap and low budget with some sets looking a bit out of place to where they're supposed to be. Like the Karate Championship looks like a school hall, then cuts to a wider shot of a massive indoor arena! The portrayal of Bruce Lee is very good in my opinion. It's the jumping about due to the cutting down to a film length that annoyed me while viewing. I'd love to see the full series.
The Young Bruce Lee film is a better "film". But this is a fascinating bio drama documentary with some great fight choreography.
4 stars for the history lesson.
Can't do 5 due to the editing down jumping about.

 Flawed, but worth a look

First thing is to bear in mind you're watching a 30plus episode TV series condensed into one 3hour film...so it suffers a little with continuity and does not always flow.
I really enjoyed the first couple of hours - the fight scenes were good -footage of Bruce prior to his Tv/Film career is scarce, so there was nothing to live up to. And it's because of this, the last third of the film really suffers - the film not only fails to examines Bruce's motivations for going to China, but also the recreation of his films' fight scenes are a poor second to the real thing. The recreation of the Game of Death is not accurate at all.
There is also an annoying, unquestioning idolatory vision of Bruce throughout - the man was a rare talent indeed, but like all of us, he had his demons and the circumstances around his death are completely avoided.
The final fight was also completely unnecessary and fell short of what had preceded...a shame, because it rather spoils what the project set out to do.
It also resorts to wire work - a pet hate of mine, and one Bruce himself abhorred. You would have thought that a film that seeks to put him on a pedastal would have at been true to his film making.
So, worth watching? If you're Bruce Lee fan, you'll enjoy some bits and like me, be annoyed by others. But at this price, its worth a go.
