    Jason Scott Lee and Lauren Holly star in this unforgettable glimpse into the life, love and the unconquerable spirit of the legendary Bruce Lee.From a childhood of rigorous martial arts training, Lee realizes his dream of opening his own kung-fu school in America. Before long, he is discovered by a Hollywood producer (Robert Wagner) and begins a meteoric rise to fame and an all too short reign as one of the most charismatic action heroes in motion picture history.Hailed as "an immeasurably entertaining movie" by CBS-TV, Dragon is ablaze with comedy, touching romance and spectacular martial arts sequences.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring July 13, 2004
    Format:DVD
    "Dragon" is an epic depicting the life of Bruce Lee. In my opinion, it is one of the most entertaining biopics of recent times. It follows the life of Bruce Lee from his childhood in Hong Kong to right before his death. The DVD version is particularly interesting because it comes with a few interviews that really shed light on Bruce Lee the man. This movie doesn't just focus on his martial arts, but it also shows his life as a family man, and an American. I found his struggle against racism to be the most moving point in this movie. Prior to Bruce Lee, the roles of Asians in Hollywood were restricted to laundrymen, villians, and caricatures. Through his effort and self-confidence, Bruce was able to make Asians into Hollywood heros. Suddenly Asia was cool.
    Jason Scott Lee does a great job of portraying Bruce Lee and it's a shame that we can't see more of him these days. You can really feel the power of his performance on the screen. If you have any interest in Bruce Lee, you have to check out this film. It's sure to inspire you to reach for your own impossible dreams.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Legendary Bruce Lee October 5, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    This is a great film of the legend of Bruce Lee. It's not an acurate portrayal of his life, but it's still a great movie. The fights scenes in the movie were awesome. Jason Scott Lee does a great job imitating Bruce's style and mannerisms. It also accurately showed us the racism involved at the time directed at the Chinese. Although Bruce Lee was a great man with great ambitions and accomplishments, he wasn't as friendly as the film depicts him to be. At times Bruce Lee was a bit arrogant and very strong minded and the movie fails to show us that, except when he seemingly temporarily loses his mind argueing with Linda Lee played by Lauren Holly. Anyway, I love this movie and I love the legend of Bruce Lee, so I reccommend this to any one interested in action movies, Bruce Lee, and inspirational movies. If you love this film I also recommend movies like "Fist of Fury", "The Chinese Connection", "Return of The Dragon", "Enter The Dragon", and "Rapid Fire". If you want to know more about the real Bruce Lee, I reccomend "The Curse Of the Dragon", it has pictures, interviews with people who knew Bruce Lee, a special but short interview with Brandon Lee, and film excerpts.

    By D. Mok
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story takes liberties with the bio-film setup and succeeds in spades, resulting in something much more interesting and challenging than straight adaptations of a life.
    Director Rob Cohen's sure hand with actors gives him an edge, surely, and his cast is wonderful -- Lauren Holly was in her late 20s at filming but plays her character as a teen deftly. Jason Scott Lee may not look much like Bruce Lee, but unless Brandon Lee were cast, that's an insurmountable limitation. What Jason Scott Lee creates is a Bruce Lee that's much more likeable, more of a boy next door, than the real Bruce Lee, and considering the romantic, mythical tone of the film in general, it was an apt choice. His athleticism and dedication make him come alive onscreen, and the moment when he explodes at Holly shows him as nuts as Bruce Lee was.
    The most brilliant touch of this movie was in its appropriation of certain Bruce Lee film idioms. The single most true-to-fact sequence in Dragon, in fact, is the back-alley fight with the cooks. The music, staging, editing and character behaviour here are so much like Lee's films (with the exception of The Chinese Connection) that they emblematize Lee in a way that's purely cinematic. Randy Edelman's score for the whole film was excellent ; this is one reason why you'll very often hear the "Dragon" theme used in film trailers -- it is perhaps the most widely used trailer score throughout the '90s. But his work was especially fit in this sequence.
    And the DVD edition?

    5.0 out of 5 stars This is a STORY, not a BIOGRAPHY! January 24, 2000
    Format:DVD
    To those who slammed this movie: you missed the point.
    This is a wonderful story. It was endorsed by his family! It is a Bruce Lee movie about Bruce Lee. As such, the overly dramatic fight scenes pay a tribute to his film legacy. This movie simply attempts to introduce the public to the legend using his own style of film; it doesn't try to squash his entire lifetime into a 2 hour movie. That would be like trying to contain a nuclear blast within a shoebox.
    What the nay-sayers neglected to mention is the commentary audio track with the director. If you watch it, you will see that they tell the REAL story about his back injury, among other things. There are also stories about the making of the movie that attest to the power of Bruce Lee's impact on the world. The commentary track alone is worth the price of the DVD. (Did I mention the many other DVD extras?)
    I've read Bruce's books. I've visited his grave in Seattle. I know his real story. And I applaud the movie for paying tribute to his life and his style of film.
    So get over yourselves. This is a great movie by any standard. "It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory." -Bruce Lee

    Picture too small on wide-screen
    Hi Ivan,

    It's because the DVD is only letterbox widescreen, not anamorphic (aka 16x9 enhanced). Yes, this movie is long overdue for an upgraded version...
