“The life of the dragon”

published 15/04/2006

ProJason Scott Lee, very entertaining

ConsNone

It was only a matter of time before the life of legendary martial arts expert Bruce Lee, was given the Hollywood treatment. So it came as no surprise when in 1993, Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story hit the big screens, spookily being released just a few months after the mysterious death of Bruce's son...

“The Dragon breathes on!”

ConsSome fabricated events.

In the wake of Bruce Lee's untimely death back in 1973, Chinese film companies cashed in on his name and produced a bucketload of films to dramatise his life. These films, which boast daft titles such as 'Bruce Lee Fights back from the grave', 'Bruce's Fist of Vengeance','The True Game of Death'...

ProGreat actors, good showing of Lee's life

ConsParts altered from the truth

Now,this is not normally the sort of film I would choose to watch, but my partner is a huge fan of Bruce Lee so when this came on the tele over the weekend, I knew I would end up watching it with him. I expected not to like it but I was pleasantly surprised by what a good and informative movie it...

As much as I found Dragon -- a biopic of Hong Kong actor, martial artist, and philosopher, Bruce Lee -- enjoyable and entertaining, I found it rather melodramatic in places. Many wouldn't argue with the opinion that Lee was a larger-than-life character, and I know biopics are supposed to...

ProExcellent Movie, Brilliant Acting

ConsAparrently not full truth to life

The Bruce Lee Story Last night I sat in at watched this movie on TV, I am not very into martial arts but I like life stories so I watched it. Basic Intro… It started off as Bruce Lee as a young boy living in china with his father and his father is teaching him how to fight and defend himself in...

“A Tale Of Loss”

published 12/09/2003

ProGreat story, well acted

ConsI knew the ending!!

The front of this DVD introduces the film as 'The Mystery. The Life. The Love. The Legend'. For me, Bruce Lee has always been a bit of a mystery. I knew who he was and what he did, but I really did not know much else about him, and as this is a film my wife has always enjoyed, I decided to buy it...

“Bruce Lee”

published 15/07/2000

As a documentary of Bruce Lee's life, this movie probably rates no higher than a C (just take a look at the "goofs" list), but as a testament to Bruce Lee's charisma and will to succeed, it's a solid A. The filmmakers and Bruce's widow, Linda Lee Caldwell, clearly want to portray him in a...

ConsNot factually complete, disc is not anamorphic

I bought this DVD because I like Martial arts and had seen this film on TV previously. It also has a lot of good special features. I understand that isn't a truly accurate biography of Bruce Lee, but it is a great introduction to the man, and definitely the best option if you have only two hours...

ConsThe fighting scenes were a bit staged.

Good film, but it was a bit naff when they went into the fighting scenes. They were okay, but seemed a bit staged. It was interesting to watch the story of Bruce Lee as everybody has heard of him and you get a picture of what he was like. You also get a general idea about what happened to him...

“A little diappointing.”

published 25/06/2000

ProGood content on DVD

ConsUnrealistic Biopic of Bruce Lee

I found this film disappointing - but I was probably expecting too much being a fan of Bruce Lee. In the "making of" extra on this disc, you are told that rather than get a martial artist who can act, it is better to get an actor, who can act his martial arts. For example, De Niro in Raging Bull...
