This is a 1993 biographical docudrama by written and directed by Rob Cohen, based on the book "Bruce Lee, the man only I knew" by Linda Lee Cadwell.
The film tells the story of actor and legendary martial artist Bruce Lee.
The film begins with a nightmare of Bruce Lee's father (Ric Young), who sees a terrifying phantom in black samurai armor that haunts the young Bruce Lee (Sam Hau).
In a montage that passes quickly through his teenage years in Hong Kong, Bruce is shown receiving instruction in traditional Chinese martial arts.
As a young adult, Bruce (Jason Scott Lee) fights with British sailors harassing a young Chinese woman, this results in him having to leave Hong Kong.
His father suggests that Bruce go to the States, since he was actually born in San Francisco when his father was on a tour there and has a US birth certificate.
His father asks Bruce to become a success, so big a success that his name will be famous even back in Hong Kong.
It is an exciting and fascinating story.
Aah, the struggles of being Asian in 60's/70's USA. The martial arts scenes were decent, albeit merely passable in execution. The story and acting performances were rightly the focus here, and were well done. One of my favourite endings in a movie, very inspiring; now to get off my duff and actually do something worth noting.
This is more of a documentary of Bruce Lee's life told by another person's persepective. This movie unfolds his life, culture, philiosophy, encouragment, sterotype, and fate he encouters in his life before death. If you want to understand more about his life and what makes him Bruce Lee, this movie will be a great viewing for you.
I felt cheated. I was expecting a fantasy movie with like dragons and elves and stuff but I got some kung fu guy biography.
bruce lee is awesome, and chinese
