A video tribute to a martial arts legend, Bruce Lee. Examined are his early years in Hong Kong and his journey to Hollywood, his role of Kato on the TV series 'The Green Hornet', and his years as the martial arts instructor to the stars. Lee's spectacular rise to super stardom through his Kung Fu films is detailed, with a revealing look at both the on-screen action and behind the scenes controversy. Celebrity interviews include actor James Coburn talking about Lee as a teacher and collaborator, and actress Diane McBain on Lee's Kato years. Lee's successors in martial arts cinema are profiled, and theories offered about mysterious deaths of Bruce Lee and his son Brandon. Plus rare footage and more! Although his life was cut short at the age of 32, Bruce Lee-- through his movies and his teachings-- will forever be remembered as the Immortal Dragon! Written by Phillip Dye

Really liked it!
31 July 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Since there aren't any comments on this documentary at the point of writing this I decided to comment on it. Also because I'm fascinated by Lee and by his documentaries. No documentary in my opinion is complete. This documentary though I found the most interesting because you see a lot of the family talking about him and explaining his way of thinking. I do have to mention that the DVD I bought of this documentary actually had 2 documentaries on it. One being 'The Immortal Dragon' and one being an E!-type program that takes an in-depth look at the Lee-family. As I don't know exactly which scenes were on which documentary I see them as one. Having said that, I really think this is the most interesting documentary since it focuses the most on Lee's private life. You see a lot of Linda Lee talking and be honest, she's the person who can tell the most interesting things about Bruce as a person and that's what fascinates me the most. If you want to know more about why everyone loves him so much I strongly suggest seeing 'A Warrior's Journey' BUT if you want to know more about the man behind the myth I think this is the best documentary. You also hear from Lee's brother and daughter. Most fascinating thing I found was when everybody talks about the death of Brandon Lee. We all know the story but here we see the family's reaction to the whole thing. Unbelievable what Linda has been through. You also see that she's re-married and that Shannon (the daughter) is also married and stars in movies. No other documentary I've seen has this stuff. Fascinating for Bruce Lee fans!
