When Bruce and Linda are at the October 1971 Hong Kong premiere of 'Big Boss', the wrong version is playing. It was the Mandarin-language print (with English/Chinese subtitles, no credits and finishing with 'The End') that played. In the film, it's the 'National General Pictures' version which was created in 1973, two years after the HK premiere (evidence of this is the English credits and soundtrack). See more »
This is a great movie. Nice action scenes, nice soundtrack, nice photo...But it's not a biography of the greatest fighter of all time: Bruce Lee. I am a big fan of Bruce and I know his life from A to Z, and this is not what I saw in that movie. I could tell all the mistakes I saw in the movie but here's just a few: In the movie: he is a unique child Reality: He had one brother and two sisters and he didn't live with his father only, he had his mother. He didn't leave Hong-Kong because of the cops (what the?...) he left because he wanted to be famous. And please! What is that story of the ghost from the depts of hell?!?!?
No, if you want to make a great action movie, good, go ahead, the right way to do it. But if you want to make a bio of a true legend, please tell the true story.
