In this tale of vengeance, Bruce is a young teenager who is the leader of the Liu City gang, who gets into trouble and street fights every now and again. Bruce is a student in the style of Chinese boxing, but when his skills are not enough to fend off a rival kung fu gang, his father has him go to a man named Master Yen, who teaches him Wing Chun fist. While continuing his training, Bruce and his team confront a bunch of street youths in a rumble and beat them all to a pulp. Apparently, the Master of the youths isn't too happy about some street punk beating his star pupils, so he sends his younger brother and a couple of other students to prepare a trap for Bruce and the Liu City Gang. Bruce is badly beaten and hung upside down outside of a tall building, while his friends On Yu and Ah Choi are also badly beaten. For Ah Choi, the beating is so bad that he dies, but An Yu survives. Bruce goes back to Macau where he asks the She Quan (Snake Style) Fist master that he meets earlier in ... Written by Anonymous

The movie probably wasn't what you were expecting
10 July 2002 | by (Greensboro, N.C.) – See all my reviews

There were a couple things about this movie that were a bit misleading. First of all, it isn't "Bruce Lee." It's actually a lifelike facsimile of the true legend, named Bruce LE. I don't know why people always claim one is the other, when it is OBVIOUS he isn't. Just a quick money maker I guess. The other misleading bit of the movie was the fact that there wasn't a "legend" of any sort. It's awfully hard to develop a legend of yourself when you only learn enough kung fu to beat up the local bullies. I suppose the producers were trying to package the fame of the real Bruce Lee, but they didn't pull it off.

This movie is no different than any other stereotypical kung fu movie. Kid gets beaten up/ family or friend of kid dies from being beaten/ kid learns kung fu in order to get revenge/ kid beats up the antagonist or master behind the beatings/ The End. Very simple to make, very quick to make and very cheap to produce. The only thing that takes time in a movie like this, is the choreography. Acting is only minor, and dialogue can be as bad as they want it to be, because it's only going to be dubbed over anyways. Most of the time, these movies aren't going to be shown in China. They're shipped over to Britain or America (whoever paid to make the movie) where it's dubbed and then released direct to video.

The plot was expected, the acting was not necessary (it's a kung fu movie), the dubbing was acceptable, and the fighting was average, a bit on the slow side. I didn't get what I paid for, and that's the real Bruce Lee, however I kind of expected it, seeing as I only paid $2.50 for a "Bruce Lee" movie. Watch the movie if you want, it's only a bump in the road of movies. No real impact on my life, just another movie.

**Final Judgement** Stick to the real Bruce Lee
