a well deserved tribute
9 December 2010 | by (www.subtitledonline.com) – See all my reviews

excerpt, more at my location - A multitude of celebrities including Sugar Ray Leonard, LL Kool J, Jackie Chan, composer Lalo Schifrin and film directors John Woo and Brett Ratner pay homage to the greatest action superstar that ever lived. Written and directed by Steve Webb, How Bruce Lee Changed the World illustrates the influence and impact Lee has had on a whole generation, and why his greatness continues to be felt today by millions of people from all walks of life.

On the whole, How Bruce Lee Changed The World is a fresh new look at Lee's legacy and proof that his influence, through mixed martial arts, modern cinema, video games, commercials and a whole host of merchandise, is still being felt today. Although it may lack any real innovation, the documentary does put into context just how incredibly unique and important this man really was, and still is, and is therefore a well deserved tribute to an important global iconic figure.
