User Reviews

A must see documentary
23 April 1999 | by Ozzy-13See all my reviews

This astonishing documentary, from the co-producer of Enter The Dragon, takes a fresh and incisive look at the life and mysterious death of martial-arts legend Bruce Lee.

You'll see film clips and rare footage, hear interviews with his famous students, and hear remembrances from son Brandon Lee.
