[Before the combat dispute]
I scooped him out. His name is Johnny Sun. He is formidable, he is a killer. 2 people tried to rob him last year, one went to the hospital, the one with the gun went to a funeral home.

This film as a stand alone kung fu movie would be worthy of your attention, as it is very enjoyable and well made. The thing that makes it special is Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of the legend that is Bruce Lee.
He successfully captures his mannerisms, attitude and even his fighting style, extremely convincingly (a truly remarkable feat of acting ability.)
Although dramatised to heighten your viewing pleasure, the story actually follows the events in Bruce Lee's life and shows us the man behind the martial arts, covering his inner turmoils and personal struggles as well as his famous physical ability.
A great movie, befitting the legend that is Bruce Lee.
