 The Story in a Nutshell

 Labelled by many as the greatest martial artist of all time, The Legend of Bruce Lee depicts the life of Bruce Lee. The  film takes you from his humble beginnings in San Francisco's Chinatown, to street fighting in the 1950s, to Hollywood  megastar and martial arts icon.

 Kung Fu, Karate, Ju Jitsu, Filipino Boxing, Taekwondo, Muay Thai


 Weapons Used

 Nunchaku, Cosh, Staff


 In Summary

 One of the cleverest aspects of this film is that it does not portray Bruce Lee as a superhero, which would have been  a very easy thing to do given who he was. We see Bruce Lee as human, with faults, losing fights, improving his Kung  Fu and developing his own Kung Fu.

 The viewer see's Lee developing / writing his book Tao of Jeet Kune Do (worth a read if you ever get a chance),  incorporating many different martial arts styles along the way.

 The highlights of the film are the scenes when Lee is challenging the various masters of the different martial arts  (Karate, Ju Jitsu, Kung Fu etc). The scenes are very well done, gritty, and give you an idea of how Bruce Lee would  have matched up to other major martial arts. 

 A lot of credit has to Danny Chan, who looks and moves like Bruce Lee, and does an excellent job in this film in what  is a dream character for any martial arts actor to play.

 One downside is the soundtrack, which at times is truly awful.  

 For anyone who is a huge Bruce Lee fan this is a must. And for those of you who are not you might just change your  mind after watching this film.
