User Reviews

Not the most polished but interesting story.
9 August 2010 | by mawrizSee all my reviews

I'm a huge Bruce Lee fan and I'm glad a local TV network dubbed this show in my local language. Granted this TV series is not too polished in terms of acting, story telling, and fight choreography, but it makes up for it with its deep insight into Lee's life not seen in other biographies before.

The script is apparently approved by the Lee family and Shannon Lee is credited as Executive Producer so I trust the source of the story. Sure there may have been a few deviations but overall I'm fine with it.

This may not be the epic that I have been expecting and hoping for but I'll give it an average 7 out of 10.
