When Bruce punches the first block of ice thrown at him in Thailand, you can see an enclosed explosive charge detonate just before the block shatters. See more »
Well, I don't want to rain on your parade Mr. Lee. But the world needs hamburgers, not Judo.
Whatever. But what about children, that's what marriage is about, children, and what will they be? They won't be white, and they won't be oriental. They'll be some kind of half-breed and will not be accpted by either side.
But, they'll be American. Linda's American, I'm an American.
No. you're an American citizen Mr. Lee.

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 »

good flick, but inaccurate
I really liked Jason Scott Lee's portrayal of Bruce Lee, but I noticed many inaccuracies in the story. If I had not seen the AMC special on Lee last year, I would not have a problem.
-according to Linda Lee, Bruce was not hurt when competing for the right to teach whoever he wanted to. He hurt himself when he didn't stretch properly for a workout in 1970. That was the big inaccuracy
-Bruce auditioned for another role in early 1965 before the role of Kato was offered to him.
other roles he took in America were completely ignored: "Marlowe", his appearances on "Longstreet", etc...the movie went right from 1967 to 1972 within a minute
If you want to see a really good special on Lee, as well as see lost footage from a project that was butchered after he died, check out the AMC documentary.
