A waste of a DVD edition,
This review is from: Bruce Lee - Martial Arts Master [DVD] (DVD)
I was hoping for some improvements over the old VHS cassette edition of this documentary on its DVD release. Unfortunately, I was proven wrong for it not only contains no suplements whatsoever and the quality of sound and picture remains basically the same as in the video cassette. Plus, the documentary was re-edited and heavily shortened - I know it because I still have the old 1993 video cassette. In total some 12 minutes worth of footage were deleted from its original 65 minutes length, resulting in entire interview segments with Chris Sato, Robert Chua and, most importantly, the recently deceased Ted Wong, one of Bruce Lee's last private students, being removed altogether - in the case of the latter, I found that deletion completely disrespectful of Mr. Wong as a person and his reputation!
The old VHS edition was much better and even included special extended interviews with both Herb Jackson and Ted Wong. Thus, this DVD is to be avoided until the people at Optimum Releasing decide to release the doc intact, restored to an above average quality print and with worthy extra features.
