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.

He was the 74th US Secretary of the Treasury between 2006 and 2009. See more »

2 June 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Recently watched this on a trans pacific flight.

It is not a bad movie and the pacing was pretty good, the 2hours went by without me noticing. The pacing was good and the story was interesting. Visually it is very good. It was well shot and it actually gave me some insight into the era my father was growing up in (same time50-60s in Asia). So I will say i like this movie.

However if i was to analyze this movie, I would say the makers are confused into what genre of movie to make. It is definitely NOT a documentary as I am pretty sure artistic license is taken. But how do you make a Bruce Lee movie without the action? So action scenes are thrown in, this however makes the movie go into the realms of "fantasy". I am pretty sure pre Hollywood Bruce got into fights but..running through rooftops and scaling scaffolding? the fight in the warehouse?.

I guess thats the problem with making a Bruce Lee story for the cinemas. It has to be interesting enough to attract investors and movie goers so the rather long and probably fictionalized action scenes are thrown in.

Good movie but I think the book would be better.
