interesting, but very incomplete
19 September 2003 | by rdoyle29See all my reviews

A tribute to the incomparable kung-fu master. It includes rare footage of his athletic capabilities and interviews with some of the people who knew him. Produced by Golden Harvest, it is light on details of Lee's early life and heavy on the details of his films for Golden Harvest. As such, it leaves out several interesting and important incidents from Lee's life, and gives short shrift to what is arguably Lee's most important film "Enter the Dragon". It also focuses heavily on some of his co-stars from his early Hong King films, and makes no mention of his most prominent co-stars, Chuck Norris and John Savage. It's difficult to say just who its intended audience is since dedicated Lee fans will find it uninformative, yet casual fans may find the immense amount of detail about his early films tedious.
