A very detailed documentary surrounding the life and death of Bruce Lee
3 September 1999 | by (Torquay, Devon) – See all my reviews

He was the greatest master of unarmed combat the world has ever seen. How could the self proclaimed worlds fittest man die so suddenly at the very height of his career? could foul play have been involved or even murder? 'Death by Misadventure' goes in depth behind the scenes as it unfolds the greatest mystery of the martial arts movie world. It also highlights a profile of Bruce Lee's only legacy, Brandon Lee, which charts the rising stars emergence as a major force in action cinema of the 90's until his tragic and untimely death in march 1993. Featured in this documentary is ground-breaking new evidence concerning Lee's death. Exclusive clips from many of Bruce Lee's childhood movies. Colour footage of Bruce Lee's Long beach 1967 karate tournament, and a interview with Brandon Lee.
