Storyline

Fighting sequences and drama of the famed martial arts icon grace this biopic as he goes from Hong Kong, to studying at the University of Washington in Seattle, to California, and the beginnings of his Hollywood career. As he continues his film career after his return to Hong Kong, the many fight challenges to him are featured from Thailand to Italy. Bruce's family is briefly featured along with his real life long best friend Little Unicorn (who portrays himself). While liberties have been taken (as in any biopic), this is a chronologically correct depiction of his rise-to-fame to his untimely demise. Written by Lonely Soldier Boy

Trivia

The score over the opening scene depicting paramedics rushing an unconscious Bruce Lee to the hospital is actually "Hell is Comin' to Breakfast Part 2," a cue recycled from Clint Eastwood's classic western, The Outlaw Josey Wales. See more »

A very good Bio-film of the legendary Bruce Lee!
27 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film a long time ago and bought it at the video many,many years ago! I loved it that much. The star maybe not Bruce Lee but is very exciting when it comes to the Martial Arts action. If you ever come across this film either rent or if it were possible to buy it then do so because this film is a treasure to have just not for Bruce Lee fans but Martial Arts fans as well! Its a great movie!
