During the ice house fight scene while filming "The Big Boss", it is easy to see that the circular ice saw is much thicker than an actual saw blade and lacks teeth. See more »
When I was a kid I had all these crazy ideas, I wanted to show the world the beauty of our culture, I wanted to give them a hero, but a Chinese hero, but I want something else now, I want to stop breaking my wife's heart, I want to play with my children without having to look at the clock, they're American, I need to go back to America or I lose them, if I lose them, nothing means anything

The theatrical release had a different camera angle in a few scenes that different in the video or DVD releases. One of these includes when Bruce Lee (Jason Scott Lee) says "This is the first Bruce Lee Kung Fu Institute.", and punches the air. In the theatrical version the shot of him is a closeup from the front and the punch looks fast and powerful. In the video and DVD release this shot is a distance shot that shows his back and the punch seems fast, but lacking in power. See more »
This film as a stand alone kung fu movie would be worthy of your attention, as it is very enjoyable and well made. The thing that makes it special is Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of the legend that is Bruce Lee.
He successfully captures his mannerisms, attitude and even his fighting style, extremely convincingly (a truly remarkable feat of acting ability.)
Although dramatised to heighten your viewing pleasure, the story actually follows the events in Bruce Lee's life and shows us the man behind the martial arts, covering his inner turmoils and personal struggles as well as his famous physical ability.
A great movie, befitting the legend that is Bruce Lee.
