Astonishing.
26 June 2002 | by (Ipswich, UK) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of the greatest documentaries that I have ever seen. The narration is easy to follow, not too self-consciously obtuse or referential to previous films, and the piecing together is simply masterful. The only quibble is the lack of information on Bruce's early life.

Things to love about this film:

* the Game of Death sequence, fully restored, edited and soundtracked to Bruce's wishes (according to recently found production notes)

* The one finger (and a thumb) pressups - although rather short

* The one inch punch

Truly awesome and 10/10.
