The alley set where Bruce Lee fights his fellow restaurant workers was washed out for three days straight as a typhoon moved through Hong Kong, putting the production three days behind schedule.

At 3 a.m. the next morning, Cohen came down to the ballroom of his hotel to see the entire Chinese crew and their families piecing together the giant plastic tent. At 8 a.m. it was erected over the alley set and Cohen began filming. See more »

This movie was amazing. Before I saw this movie, I had an idea of who Bruce Lee was. I knew he was one of the greatest martial arts masters of all time and I knew he was in a couple of movies. But, I had know idea about the kind of man he was and the struggles he had to go through. He is, in my eyes, an amazing human being with an unimaginable amount of courage and a whole lot of heart. This movie showed me that much. The score is also one of the best I have heard in my life. All in all, this movie is an inspiring take on a legend's life. Great story, great music, great human being.... What more can I say? Amazing!
A solid 8/10
