The Bruce Lee we hardly know about
I found this movie very entertaining and am happy to read that it sticks fairly close to the biographical facts of his real life. The love between Bruce and his family and friends is really heartwarming and it it was nice to see that, while he was fairly well-off financially and a minor celebrity too, he still enjoyed the wild fun of being a street kid in an urban location. The fact that he managed to get into trouble quite a few times is probably also very true to the actual life of Bruce. The film left me wanting to know more about what happened to his circle of friends in Kowloon after he achieve stardom and whether he really was as shy as portrayed when it came to girls and first romance. I also wonder if the death near the end of the film actually occurred. Still, it was a good movie that tries not to over mythologize the person worshiped today as Bruce Lee.
