Editorial Reviews

I Am Bruce Lee is the amazing story of one of the greatest icons ever to enter the public consciousness, the first film to truly tell Bruce Lee’s story in his own words and actions, as well as through the eyes of the international stars from the worlds of film, television, music and sports.


Featuring original interviews with UFC President Dana White, NBA Superstar Kobe Bryant, boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, actor Mickey Rourke, The Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo, legendary martial artists Dan Inosanto, Richard Bustillo, Bob Wall (Enter the Dragon) and Gene LeBell, and unprecedented conversations with Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee and his wife Linda Lee Cadwell, plus the best of Bruce Lee’s ground-breaking martial arts action films and rare archival footage, I Am Bruce Lee is the definitive story of a man whose legacy will endure forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am Bruce Lee January 9, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I have to confess, right away, that I am a fan of Bruce Lee, and have been one since the seventies, when he conquered the world with "Enter the Dragon," the film that made him a megastar - a short-lived one, since he unbelievably died early at the age of 32. And, as a fan that I am of Bruce, I have seen almost every documentary available about his life (and death). With that said, I can affirm that "I am Bruce Lee" is the best and most complete documentary about him ever made. This is the real thing.

Approved by Bruce Lee Enterprises, the documentary has lots of participation from Linda Lee Cadwell -- Lee's widow -, as well as daughter Shannon. It also has interviews with Lee's closest, known friends and disciples, such as Dan Inosanto, Richard Bustillo, and Bob Wall. There are interviews with some celebrities that were influenced by Lee, including Ed O'Neill, Mickey Rourke, Manny Pacquiao, Reginald Hudlin, Ray Mancini, Kobe Bryant, Diana Lee Inosanto, Gina Carano, Jon Jones, and others.

The film really covers almost every aspect of Lee's life by way of interviews or archival footage, including the classic interview at the Pierre Berton show in 1971; his early movies as a child actor; his first martial arts school in Seattle - Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute; Ed Parker's International World Karate Championships in Long Beach, California; his troubles with the Chinese community for teaching to non-Chinese people in Seattle; the birth of Jeet Kune do; the effect of the Manson murders on his life; his death in Hong Kong; and much more. Of course, there is plenty of information about his TV and film career, including the "Green Hornet;" being teacher of such Hollywood luminaries as James Coburn, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Steve McQueen, etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars An informative but otherwise disposable documentary January 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Nearly 40 years after his death and after countless Bruceploitation films in the 70s, a biographical film in the early 90s, two documentaries that were made nearly ten years apart, a biographical TV series, and another biographical film in 2010, it's safe to say that the legacy of Bruce Lee is pretty much covered. Nevertheless a new documentary entitled "I Am Bruce Lee" is upon us with the promise of "never before seen footage" and that it's "the best Bruce Lee documentary ever!" While its "unmissable" content may be up for debate, "I Am Bruce Lee" is an interesting insight into Bruce Lee's life, but features material that can otherwise be found in any other documentary or biographical film based on his life.

The documentary utilizes this rather irritating editing technique where it jumps back and forth between family, friends, trainers, actors, MMA fighters, and boxers talking about how Bruce Lee has affected their lives and footage from Bruce Lee's films, his personal films from backyard training, or family photos. That doesn't sound so bad, but when you have to listen to what sounds like a flat palm slapping the surface of a wet watermelon every few seconds along with Bruce Lee's signature "WAAAAAA!" or "WAAATAAAAA!" then it gets extremely tiresome really quickly.

Some of the people they choose to do interviews with is rather questionable. Hearing from the likes of Linda Lee Cadwell, Shannon Lee, Dan Inosanto, and Diana Lee Inosanto is mandatory because they all knew Bruce so well. Hearing from historians, authors and even UFC president Dana White is also very interesting. White actually comes across as very intelligent and knowledgeable and according to White Bruce Lee is the "father" of UFC.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2012 bruce lee documentary November 1, 2012
Format:DVD
This latest video documentary about Bruce lee aired on spike channel only a couple of times.It has various people and celebrities from all walks of life talking about the influence and insparation of bruce lee and how he affected them personally like kobe bryant, mickey rourke, dana white, & jon jones just to name a few.The documentary does go into some depth about bruce lee's philosophys and views of martial arts and life in general.It was kind of an eye opener for me because I never really understood why bruce was so legendary, but this is one of the many documentary's that answered why. Bruce's wife before he died also appears to talk and discuss his life and legacy.

Format:Blu-ray
I was very excited about this doc for two reasons, I love Bruce Lee and the director Pete McCormack who made an amazingly fresh and insightful documentary "Facing Ali" Facing Ali so it had that going for it. Unfortunately .... its just another version of the already available How Bruce Lee Changed the World and the documentary Bruce Lee - A Warrior's Journey. I am happy to own them all and am glad I own this but I can't honestly say that anything in it created an "ah ha" moment for me. Lots of current day "talking heads" with the same clips from his very iconic films scattered throughout. Most of the bonus content is also available as bonus content on the spectacular 2 DVD set or BR set of Enter The Dragon....as well as the documentary previously mentioned "A Warriors Journey"

Bottom line...
If you don't know about Bruce Lee but are interested ...get Enter the Dragon (Two-Disc Special Edition) or the Blu Ray version... its a terrific film with hours of bonus content. IF ... you have everything (as I am guilty of) complete your collection with this but expect the same content arranged slightly differently.

Other reviewers have commented on the content... basically his story told through people who knew him or are inspired by him with his voice and clips interjected. There isn't any new film to discover of Mr Lee so at this point all we can expect and what this delivers is moving the existing furniture to create a different vibe.
