Product Description

Known as 'The Little Dragon' to legions of adoring fans, Bruce Lee is regarded by many as the greatest martial arts legend who ever lived. Now, discover his amazing untold story in this stunning biopic from the studio that brought you Jet Li's Warlords and the acclaimed Infernal Affairs Trilogy.

From his birth on November 27th 1940 to his departure for San Francisco in 1959, discover how Bruce Lee lived through war and persecution and survived the brutal street-gangs of 1950's Hong Kong before going on to live his dreams.

Produced by Robert Lee, Bruce Lee's younger brother, and based on his own first-hand experience, Young Bruce Lee is a breathtaking and evocative homage to the man who, uniquely, brought the power and majesty of Chinese Kung Fu to millions around the world.

Showcasing an incredible hi-impact tribute to the celebrated Coliseum fight from Way of the Dragon, Young Bruce Lee is an inspirational motion picture event that is not to be missed!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Young Legend 7 Jun 2011
Format:Blu-ray
As to the other reviewer that stated that you only see the adult Mr Lee an hour into the film, your either crazy, seriously ripped off or the timer on your player is faulty!

I did enjoy this but my only regret was that though it was excellently done there was not more insight into his training with Ip Man. I mean these must now, today, be the most famous martial arts pair in the world for Pete's sake! LOL. It was also missing a fight scene too. If it had each of these two things it would have easily made 5 Stars.

Now if only HK cinema would stop driving us insane. Three films on Ip Man and a fourth nearly upon us. Now one on Bruce Lee and so far they have only brushed upon the two meeting. Like fleeting glimpses leading up the the main event.

I for one certainly hope what I originally read about this film being a trilogy is true, though it is difficult to quite see how that will happen, writing wise. Unless members of the Lee clan visited the U.S. more than was suggested in a certain other movie about his life. But then and a few of my Bruce Lee fan friends did not even know he had siblings, so who knows!

This is a homage to Bruce Lee's early life and shows how the character he had came about. I did enjoy it. I have read some really bad reviews, well two, on this film that are not exactly fair.

I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce Lee (the legend) 23 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Cine Asia:

Bruce Lee never goes out of style. As an adult he only made a few films, but he made a huge impression on worldwide audiences and brought Hong Kong cinema into the larger world's consciousness. There has been no shortage of films seeking to capitalize on his iconic image, from the original glut of Brucesploitation films in the 70's and 80's, all the way through to biographical features over the years which only tenuously resemble the truth. However, while Hollywood tackled the artist as a young adult in America with Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, no one had really focused on where the man came from. His youth has been an untapped resource for understanding the phenomenon that was Bruce Lee, until now.

Young Bruce Lee (AKA Bruce Lee, My Brother) is an attempt to show where Bruce came from. The story comes from his younger brother Robert, and while it is certainly a pretty glowing account, it does have quite a bit of backstory on Bruce and his family relationships that has not really been explored on screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will disappoint for the wrong reasons 31 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film is good, but it's miss marketed.

If you want to enjoy this film you need to know at least two things: This is not about Wing Chun and it's not about fighting.

I hate it when i'm mislead by marketing when watching a film, because it unnecessary and it ruins the film. This is a dramatization of Bruce Lee's life before he came to the US.

He doesn't even start practicing Wing Chun until late in the film, and even then it's not emphasized. Which is absolutely fine, just let me know, indicate what sort of a film the viewer will see, so they don't go in expecting one thing and getting something else.

I'm leaving it at four stars for now but I have to re-watch it eventually to get my opinion right on it.

Watch the Cine-Asia Official Trailer on YouTube, it's almost 100% off the mark on what this film is about.

This said I want to add that in a way i'm glad this wasn't about Wing Chun in retrospect, because we know about that part of his life, in this you get to see him as a person and the part of his life people are unaware of. Martial Arts would have taken the focus from that. Also, very few could replicate him so i'm happy to learn about him as a person from the perspective of his brother and sister.

4.0 out of 5 stars more art then martial arts 15 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is not a martial arts film. It is a dramatised biography of Bruce Lee's life. That does not mean it is a bad film. There were times I was laughing out loud to bits of the film that were jyst on the right side of silly to be funny and not stupid.

The film starts hours before Bruce's birth, and end with him leaving for America. The concentrate on his family life, snd his frendships. I do like the way the take pictures through out the film, and then swap them for original pictures supplied to them. The show Bruce as a little tear away earing reputation on the streets, but they do not show him actually fighting. Only probobly 15 mins of the film is dedicated to Bruce training or actually fighting. One thing I did think they got wrong was they did not show Bruce celebral enough. The reason Bruce was such a great martial artist was not just physical. It was the speed with read an opponent and counter them. He would outthink and trap opponents by being 10 moves ahead of them. It was tbe fact that he was always thinking philosophically that allows him to see beyond form based martial arts to create Jeet Kun Do. In the film they seemed to down play his intelligence.

This is an enjoyable portrait of Bruce Lee's early years. His friends, family and experiences growing up. However if you are expecting a fight fest try not to be disappointed and enjoy the film for what it is.
