A must see for true Bruce Lee fans
23 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To call yourself a real Bruce Lee fan, and then credit Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story as being better than the Legend of Bruce Lee T.V. series is totally absurd!

The Legend of Bruce Lee T.V. series is clearly the most in-depth attempt any studio has ever made, in the telling of the life of martial arts master Bruce Lee. I have watched all 50 episodes, and as an avid Bruce Lee fan, I was very much pleased with what I viewed. There is enough information about the series on the web, so there is no need for me to go into an in-depth review, or spoil anything for those who may not have seen it.

I will say, that this series was very well done, despite it's budget. The acting was great, and the fight choreography was very good. Danny Chan was excellent as Bruce Lee. The best that I have ever seen. Did he mimic Bruce? Of course he did. He was playing the part of Bruce Lee after all! Were there continuity issues, and inconsistencies? Of course. Name one biopic that has gotten every single thing correct. Plus, not one of us knows every single detail of Bruce's life.

I was born in 1963. I have been a fan of Bruce Lee since I laid eyes on The Big Boss & Fist of Fury. These were two of the first martial arts movies my late father took me and my older bother to see in the early 70's This began for me and my brother a lifelong interest in martial arts, and anything Bruce Lee related. If you're a true fan of the martial arts master you will view this series just like I did.

The Legend of Bruce Lee is a treasure for every true fan of the master Bruce Lee!
