3.0 out of 5 stars Great kung-fu, but shame about the story 4 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film is the life story of Bruce Lee. As with Bruce Lee the Kung fu is amazing, but the story leaves a lot to the imagination - litterally. It concentrates too much on the fighting and neglects many of the other points in his life. This film Bruce Lee is portrayed as someone who is cocky and looks for trouble, this coupled with obviously fake rivalries is what ruins the film. Personally I prefer Dragon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tribute to the "Little Dragon" 22 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film as a teenager, years ago, (back in the eighties) lol.
Ho Chung Tao plays him so well and should be respected for that!
He plays him well, both in the early years, when he's trying to make his
mark in America and also when he makes it as a great martial artist and
fantastic movie actor! His mannerisms do it for me, so much like the real Bruce!
Ho Chung Tao's kung fu is really good too, it had to be though, to play the master.
There's only one Bruce Lee of course, but when you watch the movie, you
can't help thinking how believable well, Ho Chung Tao becomes the character.
Enjoyed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Bruce Lee biographical films 15 Oct 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is generally considered to be the best bio-pic made of Bruce Lee's life, even though it does leave some gaps in the story. Often billed as a documentary, it is in fact a movie based on the biography of the man, and it takes the high road by trying to present Bruce Lee as he really was. The film opens with the ambulance transporting Bruce to the hospital, followed by a respectful look at his gravesite, and only then do we go back in time to trace the extraordinary life of this martial arts legend. Bruce Li plays the part of the Dragon, and I was definitely most impressed by his performance. The first few Bruce Li films I watched, I couldn't understand why this man is generally considered to be the best of the Bruce Lee imitators. He impressed me in Chinese Connection 2, but Li is on top of his game in Bruce Lee: The Man, The Myth; his resemblance in both look and form to Bruce Lee is much more polished here than in Li's other films.
We follow Bruce Lee from Hong Kong to Seattle, Washington, where he teaches the martial arts to those wanting to learn, having by now gone a long way toward establishing his own special Jeet Kune Do style. From here it is on to San Francisco and then Los Angeles, by which time he has landed the role of Kato in The Green Hornet. Eventually, the reluctance of Hollywood to build a movie around a relatively unknown Asian fighter leads him to return to Hong Kong to make a name for himself there. This film features a very nice reproduction of one scene from Bruce's first big movie, The Big Boss (aka Fists of Fury in the US). After a couple of Hong Kong successes, he makes his successful return to America to begin the film career he had dreamed about.
