The theatrical release had a different camera angle in a few scenes that different in the video or DVD releases. One of these includes when Bruce Lee (Jason Scott Lee) says "This is the first Bruce Lee Kung Fu Institute.", and punches the air. In the theatrical version the shot of him is a closeup from the front and the punch looks fast and powerful. In the video and DVD release this shot is a distance shot that shows his back and the punch seems fast, but lacking in power.
The climatic use of nunchucks in the dream sequence has been reduced to deemphasize the display of weaponry in the UK versions. This version was used as the basis for the European DVD release, since Universal did not want to create different DVD masters.
