The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering - Bruce Lee. EXPLOSIVE, BRUTAL AND ACTION-PACKED - THIS IS THE EPIC TRUE STORY OF A MARTIAL ARTS LEGEND. When Bruce Lee was born on the 27th of November 1940 in San Francisco's Chinatown, little did his parents know that their infant son would go on to become the greatest martial arts icon that the world had ever seen. The Legend Of Bruce Lee will take you on an incredible journey into the life of a man who knew no boundaries. From his days surviving brutal street fights in 1950s Hong Kong to his meteoric rise to fame as a martial arts screen icon, through to his tragic and mysterious death at the age of 32; his story has never before been told so faithfully or so completely. In this spectacularly choreographed epic, produced by Bruce's daughter, Shannon Lee, you can re-live the legend's entire astounding life story. Welcome to The Legend Of Bruce Lee.
I'm a big Bruce Lee fan, own a few of his biographies, and have read a lot about his life on the Internet. Judging by some of the past reviews, I know this series is not going to please the die-hard fanatics who insist that every facet of his life be represented accurately on the screen. Most hardcore Lee fans know, for instance, that Bruce Lee was injured in the gym in 1970, not in the Wong Jack Man fight as portrayed in this series.
However, despite many historical inaccuracies, this is still a great and watchable drama. I feel like if I want to learn more about Bruce Lee's actual life, then I'll stick to firsthand sources like Leo Fong and Linda Lee. But if I want to be entertained by a series which features very skilled acting, directing, incredible pacing (each episode focuses on a small event in the fictional Bruce Lee's life and gives appropriate time to each of these segments), this is not the worst show for that.
