This is a pretty incredible documentary that is almost every bit as good as A Warrior's Journey (AWJ has a slight edge since it has the remastered and original footage from Game of Death) that is a worthy watch for any Bruce Lee fan. Seeing how he influenced not only actors and directors, but musicians, boxing, MMA, and bodybuilders is pretty interesting. The film does a good job of putting into perspective of how big Bruce Lee really was. A man whose teachings seem more relevant today than they did 30-40 years ago deserves to be as big as he is even if he's no longer here to witness it. Bruce Lee jump started martial arts filmmaking and broke the stereotypes set in Hollywood for Chinese and Asian actors during the seventies. How Bruce Lee Changed the World is a great film to pop in to show that friend who doesn't understand why everyone has such a thing for Bruce Lee or is just a great watch to give Bruce Lee fans a better insight into the legacy he left behind and the phenomenon that continues to grow everyday.
The biography has chapters on Philosophy, Breaking Stereotypes, Martial Arts, Physical Fitness, Attitudes in China, Action Movies, Music, Branding, and a short bit at the end about where he is buried and about future plans for things regarding Bruce Lee.
The chapters of the DVD contain interesting segments on freerunning, mixed martial arts, and bodybuilding with several freerunners, mixed martial artists, and bodybuilders stating that Lee's philosophy, ideas, and training helped shaped these popular sports and training. I also really liked the segments with Shannon Lee in Hong Kong and China where a memorial park and museum are being created. They are also planning a museum in Hong Kong in Lee's old home. I also found the other chapters interesting as well.
It's a very well done biography, which one would expect from the History Channel, with footage from Bruce Lee films and private video of Bruce Lee as well as many other interesting scenes and interviews. It's fast paced and keeps your attention throughout.Read more ›
