Trivia

In the film, Bruce Lee, played by Aarif Rahman, and Charlie Owen, played by Alex Yen, fight in an abandoned barn. The fight is an homage to the iconic fight between the actual Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris in the film The Way of the Dragon (1972), complete with a cat sitting and watching nearby. See more »

Goofs

Every time they show the picture of a one hundred American dollar, the new hundred dollar bill was used instead of the old. The movie was about the 1940s and on, however, The one hundred dollar bill shown in the movie was a new 100 dollar bill which has been changed multiple times since the time depicted in the movie. The hundred dollar bill that was inserted into the Chinese red pocket by Bruce Lee's mother had the printed signature of "Henry M Paulson Jr". He was the 74th US Secretary of the Treasury between 2006 and 2009. See more »

A movie all Bruce Lee fans must watch.
28 November 2010 | by (Asia) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie without reading any reviews and I have not seen any of the movies or TV series made about Bruce Lee. I trust this movie because it's based on the book written by his own brother who is still living and judged from the title, I thought I will get to see his whole life story; and curious how they will show his last 4 movies that made him a superstar and legend. More curious is who will play Lo Wei, Raymond Chow, Nora Miow, Linda and Ting Pei ? Will his rejection to Shaw Brothers' offer be shown ? I must admit I am quite disappointed that I will not get to see them but instead it's mainly focused on his family background, upbringing, his childhood movie days, friends, some romance and finally the 3 major events that brought the movie to a satisfying end; a dance competition, a boxing competition and a climatic event that caused him to leave HK to the States at around the age of 19. Overall I am happy with the movie although there is no big names in the cast but a lot of actors and actresses characters from HK black and white movies of the 50s are shown, obviously to please the elderly fans. It's a pity they did not show the role of Pak Yin, HK's most popular actress of that time who acted and danced with Bruce in his last movie before he leaves HK in "The Orphan". They only showed he was offered that movie. You will enjoy it better if you are familiar with those 50s HK celebrities. They tried to cast them as close as possible to the original people in look and behaviour; that's why at times we find these acting a little poor or weird, with the exception of the actor playing Bruce. I think we will not get a better one. We don't know if the last event that caused his father to send him away is true or not but as a movie, it's simply good although not perfect. If this movie do well in the box office(I think it will), I am sure the producers will make at least 2 sequels; "Bruce Lee in U.S." and "Bruce Lee, the superstar" which will certainly be more interesting to watch than his childhood days. I look forward to them. So Bruce Lee fans, just go and watch it. I am sure you wish to know about his earlier life.
