Product Description

Bruce Lee, martial arts legend and on screen icon, starred in only 4 films before his tragic death in 1973 and was nevertheless one of Cinema s most famous and influential stars. For more than 35 years, Lee s legacy has changed the way martial arts and action films are made. Through the development of his own fighting techniques and philosophies he revolutionized traditional martial arts and enhanced its awareness all over the world. This programme takes an in depth look at Bruce Lee s life from his youth street fighting on the gang filled streets of Hong Kong to his domination of world cinema and the profound effect he had on the world he left behind after his death. With interviews from celebrities, film directors, friends and family, including Jackie Chan, John Woo, Raymond Chow, John Saxton, Donnie Yen, LL Cool J, Brett Ratner, Stan Lee and of course his wife Linda and daughter Shannon this programme offers a rare insight into one of the most influential Martial Artists of all time. How Bruce Lee Changed the World is also packed full of exciting action from some of his most memorable fight scenes in films such as Enter the Dragon, Fist of Fury and The Big Boss and from the TV Show The Green Hornet. Also included is rare footage of his most impressive feats, including the one inch punch and two finger press up. This is a remarkable celebration of Bruce Lee s life and legacy. The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering. Also includes extended bonus interviews with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, George Dillman, Ricky Hatton and Diana Lee Inosanto.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Bruce Lee changed my world 21 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Growing up I had heard of Bruce Lee but I never knew anything about him nor had I watched any of his films. I purchased 'enter the dragon' this year after Geoff Thompson (an influential martial artist) mentioned how Bruce Lee's films had inspired him, and I instantly became a fan. What I enjoyed more than the film however were the special features on the dvd which included documentaries on Bruce Lee, training footage and an interview with Bruce Lee.

This led to me working my way through Bruce Lee's films: 'way of the dragon' (which inludes a fight scene voted one of the best ever in martial arts history), 'the big boss' and 'fist of fury' which are all excellent. There is also 'game of death' which I haven't yet watched however this was made posthumously.

I then purchased this dvd which is an excellent documentary about an hour and a half long. It includes interviews with people who knew Bruce Lee personally as well as those he has inspired; and there are also further interviews in the special features of the dvd. The documentary itself was actually on Sky television a while ago, I think it was on the History Channel but I watched it on Anytime TV. If you have seen a recent documentary on Bruce Lee then this is probably the one that you have watched.

I already knew that Bruce Lee had revolutionised martial arts and film making but I was unaware of his influences in other areas such as music, philosophy, advertising and even break dancing. Even after his death he continues to inspire people around the world, crossing culturual boundaries and I think the words on his grave sum it up: 'your inspiration continues to guide us toward our personal liberation.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best Bruce Lee documentary 11 Nov 2010
By Simian
a really comprehensive documentary that covers alot about bruce lee even new material that one may not associate with Lee; parkour, MMA, hip-hop and more. every interview is interesting giving not so much insight but more on how Lee inspired their career, it features known names like brett ratner, LL cool J, RZA, Jackie chan and many more. The docu is easy to follow and is split evenly into sections for people to understand the topic, his influence on music, martial arts, acting, philosophy etc. Fans of Lee should not miss this even if you know pretty much everything about Lee because it is a joy to watch and their are some interesting information that may catch you by surprise.

old footage is used interspersed between new materials, all interviews seem to be relatively new and up to date.
The narrator can be a bit annoying, he is your standard documentary voice actor, he sometimes mentions misleading information that fans will be able to point out but they are so minor and few it does not effect the overall quality of the documentary.

This is by far the best documentary out there that no fan should be without. highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bruce Lee 12 Nov 2010
I'm really only echoing what the other reviewer has said. This is by far and away the most impressive Bruce Lee documentary I have seen. Wall to wall footage and high quality interviews with many people who knew him and some big names who were influenced by him either directly or culturally.

There's a genuine feel for Bruce Lee's era and the impact he had on the world at the time. His life story is certainly something you would imagine belongs in one of his films and I'm actually pretty staggered by it all.

The meat of this programme, besides the interviews, is the footage of Bruce lee from films and other aspects of life. I don't think I'm going to forget the film of his one inch punch in a hurry for example!

This isn't just an account of Bruce Lee's film career but his entire, impressive, life. Well worth the price of admission for any fan. Probably generate a few new ones too!
