I would not call director Bao Nguyen's film style as being artistically styled for the viewers pleasure but a film that delivers the essence of who action film and TV star Bruce Lee was to countless countries fans who relished in waiting for another Bruce Lee film to be released. Bruce Lee was not treated properly by the United States film and television industry and so they (the U.S. film producers) missed a golden opportunity to lock him up to a long term ten (10) year film contract. Instead Bruce Lee headed back to Hong Kong to fulfill his vision of what a Bruce Lee action film should look like as a finished product.
Triva: I was not aware that it was Bruce Lee who pitched the idea for a television series about a travelling nomad warrior and philosopher to the U.S.A. producers only to have his idea turned down and handed over to American actor David Carradine and turned into ABC's hit TV series Kung Fu (1972-1975). What a real shame! I can only imagine how Bruce Lee would have made this TV series ten (10) times better, but ignorance in Hollywood is once again bliss eh?
This documentary is narrated by Bruce Lee's immediate family and close friends as well as interspersed with various formal and candid interviews with Bruce Lee. It is well worth the watch and available in ESPN's 30 For 30 series.
I give this documentary a credible 8 out of 10 IMDB rating.
