Goofs

The narrator says that the Bruce Lee Museum (including the grounds) in his home town will occupy '1.5 million square kilometers' which is physically impossible. Which is more likely is "1.5 Million Square feet" or the nearest metric equivalent. See more »

Extremely weak documentary
13 March 2011 | by (Lyngby, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I really don't have much to say about this weak documentary. Unlike previous documentaries it does not capture the spirit of Bruce Lee. I has no understanding of his impact, philosophy, legacy, etc. Talks with all the wrong people. Have factual information that is ridiculous: "Glasgow is one of the most violent cities in Europe." Yeah, right, sure they would have agreed with that in Sarajevo? (I meant that ironically). With that kind of standard for documentaries you really give that art-form a bad name. It just seemed they had talked with a lot of frustrated people who says clichéd things like: "Bruce Lee used what was useful," and other meaningless garbage like that. It just goes on and on forever, for example trying to portray Jackie Chan as "a major star" (which he is not, in my opinion - in ten years time no one will remember Jackie Chan). So this movie is just all about ego and misses all opportunities to make a great philosophical documentary on the legacy of Bruce Lee.
