Based on the life and career of Martial Arts superstar, Bruce Lee. Haunted by demons. Bruce was taught Martial arts at childhood. Bruce then was told by his father to flee to the United States. There, he opened up a Martial Arts school, then was chosen to be the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato. Then, his big movie career that included "The Big Boss" and "Enter the Dragon". Fighting many enemies along the way, including his childhood demon. Written by
The love theme that composer Randy Edleman wrote for the Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993) soundtrack (called "Bruce and Linda" on the album) has scored dozens of other movies' trailers, including Forrest Gump (1994), Cradle Will Rock (1999), and The Truman Show (1998). It became such a common choice, especially for the "dramatic montage" latter section of trailers, that when the humor website cracked.com and the comedy duo BriTANicK made a widely forwarded 2009 parody of movie trailers, they also used Edleman's music for the same purpose.

Although Bruce Lee did not injure his back during a fight to decide whether he could teach all races martial arts (he injured it doing Good Mornings, an exercise that places the barbell on your shoulders and lean forward until your torso is 90 degrees with your legs, then repeat) the fight did take place and he did win.

Three weeks before the opening of Enter the Dragon, the movie that would bring him into international fame, Bruce fell into a mysterious coma and died. He was 32. Thousands of fans have gathered in Hong Kong for the funeral. I buried him in America so he can be close to us. There are many people that want to know the way he died, I want to remember the way he lived.

I really liked Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of Bruce Lee, but I noticed many inaccuracies in the story. If I had not seen the AMC special on Lee last year, I would not have a problem.
-according to Linda Lee, Bruce was not hurt when competing for the right to teach whoever he wanted to. He hurt himself when he didn't stretch properly for a workout in 1970. That was the big inaccuracy
-Bruce auditioned for another role in early 1965 before the role of Kato was offered to him.
other roles he took in America were completely ignored: "Marlowe", his
appearances on "Longstreet", etc...the movie went right from 1967 to 1972 within a minute
If you want to see a really good special on Lee, as well as see lost footage from a project that was butchered after he died, check out the AMC documentary.
