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 »
I'd have to say this was the best biopic on Bruce Lee so far (not that there are many of them). I got to learn many things about the man than I had known before, both trivial and non-trivial. For example, I felt that the actor who played Bruce portrayed his charm, energy, and even the evolution of his vocal "ai-yahs" really well. Also, I actually loved the fact that the fight scenes were so unpolished -- it makes the film more realistic instead of looking like a kung-fu video game. Maybe it's just me, but I also liked that they didn't show Yip Man's face (or at least I don't recall ever seeing his face).
Watch this, then go watch the movie that shows his life after he arrives in California (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story).
