Rating: 2.5/4 -- It is invariably ominous in any biopic if, toward the end of the running time, the hero complains of a headache. Full Review

...An entertaining whole...The result provides extremely touching and haunting material...
May 3, 1993
Rating: B- -- Though enjoybale, this old-fashioned biopic of the late Asian star, suffers from sappy sentimentality and excessive melodramatics. Full Review
Jun 18, 2006
Rating: 3/5 -- The engaging dramatic biography celebrates Bruce Lee's spirit using a rough outline of his career as a narrative guide.
Jun 14, 2007
Jason Scott Lee does his namesake proud in the title role, but the film tries to court too many different audiences, with lethal results. Full Review

...Enjoyably hokey....Acted with ease and humor...

The early scenes are thrillingly edited, like a flurry of karate kicks.... Later the film loses its way -- largely in romance. Full Review

Product Description:

The very entertaining true life story of the martial arts sensation whose meteoric rise to fame ended suddenly with his untimely, mysterious death.

Plot Synopsis:

A biographical film of the adored movie star and martial arts idol, Bruce Lee.
The story follows Lee from his childhood in Hong Kong, where he began training in martial arts, to his arrival in the United States, where he tried to build an acting career despite the prevalent racism.
Upon his return to his homeland, he gradually became famous, thanks to a series of kung fu films. But despite his success, he never stopped battling a family "demon," who allegedly killed Bruce's brother and whose presence continually haunted Bruce.
In 1970, Lee died under mysterious circumstances.
