A story about Bruce Lee's life in Hong Kong
3 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe there's renewed interest in the young life of Bruce Lee because of the recent hit movie about Bruce's Wing Chun teacher Yip Man. In any case, this movie has input of Bruce's young brother Robert Lee which sheds light to Bruce's formative years in Hong Kong. From this influence, much of the story revolves around Bruce's family life. Along with it we also get to see a glimpse of what life in Hong Kong might have looked like back in the mid '50s.

It's a good movie about life of Bruce Lee. The only negative might be that the actor and the actress who played Bruce and his girlfriend lacked the flare that Bruce had and what was shown of the girl in the picture of Bruce at the Cha Cha competition. But this might be as close to possible of depicting Bruce by another person. Bruce Lee had very special star quality that made him stand out in every situation.

I remember seeing Bruce Lee in TV commercial of the Green Hornet. His line was "Hi, this is Bruce Lee, please join me in the next episode of the Green Hornet.". He stood out despite the fact that he was little known, and he was an Asian showing up in American television. He was so good looking, and had a star quality like no other.

I really liked this movie, as it shed lights on to the life of Bruce Lee in Hong Kong that we knew little about, and wished we knew more about. With the input of Robert Lee, this is as close to coming authentic as it can be, and is a good addition to the legend we know as Bruce Lee.
