Don't Listen to the other amazon.com reviews,this movie is not that bad. If you look past the mistakes in this movie, you can still enjoy it. "The Legend of Bruce Lee" 2008 starring Danny Chan and Michelle Lang is interesting insight into the life of Martial Arts Legend Bruce Lee. The film has a poor English dub, but the story solid and well thought out. The "Legend of Bruce Lee" covers some stories of Bruce Lee's life that were not in 1993's Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story directed by Rob Cohen. For one thing, this movie does feature one of Bruce Lee's student, Taky Kamura and Master Wang! In "Dragon: The Bruce Lee story" there is no student named Taky Kamura or teacher named Master Wang. I think this film should be given more credit. "Legend of Bruce Lee" was originally a 50-episode Chinese Television series that aired in Chinese Television in 2008. The film is footage taken from Chinese TV series and made into a 3 hour TV movie. I like the trailer and I feel the film is not that bad. I do admit there are flaws in this movie but I overall think "The Legend of Bruce Lee" is a great film and is worth owning on DVD! A+ Please give this DVD a chance! A-

It must be stated at the outset that this film has nothing whatsoever to do with Bruce Lee. The star of the movie is actually Bruce Le, one of several Bruce Lee wannabe martial arts actors who followed in the wake of the true legend's shocking death. Furthermore, this is by no means a biographical account of any part of Bruce Lee's life, despite the title and the blurb on the box cover which says "Bruce Le portrays his tragic namesake." The only tie of any kind with the real Bruce Lee comes in the opening scene, wherein an astrologer sees a meteor and makes a prediction concerning the young baby of the couple sitting beside him, after which a shot of the real Bruce Lee appears. The fact that the film is not in truth about Bruce Lee at all comes very soon after the opening credits, though.
In and of itself, putting aside its misleading title and description, The Legend of Bruce Lee does have legs to stand on, albeit sometimes rather shaky ones. Bruce comes across as something of a juvenile delinquent who is constantly getting into fights (not always with good results). In an effort to improve his skills, he begins taking instruction in the art of Wing Chun kung fu, which includes some training in the art of blindfolded boxing (this comes after Bruce gets kicked around pretty convincingly by a blind man on the streets). After a time, he sort of abandons this type of fighting and begins training in the snake fist style. All of this training comes in handy because he can't walk a block without being attacked by a gang of kung fu thuds. The plot, what there is of it, is actually rather annoying, not to mention loosely tied together. The only real plot point comes when one of Bruce's friends is murdered and Bruce decides to avenge his friend's death.

Kung fu movies don't get better than this shining star of an example!!! A fictionalized account of the Little Dragon's life probably doesn't do anything to enhance historical facts, but it's sure a lot of fun to see the young Bruce get into one fight after another. Hell, the copyright info hasn't cleared the screen and we already have Bruce getting into a fight with a bunch of thugs. Of course, the real beauty of this film comes from the over the top cheesy dialogue, awful music, cameos by famous martial arts cinema figures (Bolo Yueng, Dr. Claw from Enter the Dragon, etc.), excellent fights in a mutltitude of styles and Bruce's dad constantly telling him: "You've been fighting again!!! But you're kung fu's not good enough!!!"
Noteworthy fights include a fight with the master of Blindfold Style king fu, a fight in a seedy motel, fights at various martial arts schools and good old street fights with whips and chains. Really good stuff. This movies availability on DVD should be viewed as the Godsend it is!!!
I ought to put together a list of the unbelievable dialogue in this film. Some of the quotes are too good to be left in the film when you can be using them on your unsuspecting friends!

This review is for the Chinese TV series, of which the DVD (which I haven't seen) is an extremely edited version. I'm giving it 5 stars, but I think it's a 4.5 star series. Personally, I don't see how thirty 45-minute episodes could possibly be cut down to 183 minutes without losing something (yes, it's 30 episodes, not 50 as some reviewers who haven't seen it have claimed). I began watching the series in China, but was unable to see the whole thing. Fortunately, Hulu has the full 30 episode version, so I was able to finish it. If you have Hulu, that's the way to watch it.

There are certainly some inaccuracies and ommissions in the story line, even incorrect naming of actors in some of Lee's movies (e.g. Chuck Norris is a different martial artist in "Way of the Dragon" [a.k.a. "Revenge of the Dragon"]). One of the funniest errors is one of the bad guys wearing a Justin Timberlake teeshirt. The subtitles are also inaccurate, as are all English translations of Chinese dialog in Chinese movies. But the martial arts is top-notch and the story is close enough to history to give the viewer a pretty good idea what kind of a person Bruce Lee was. Besides, this series is not meant to be a 100% accurate biography of Bruce Lee's life...it only claims to be based on his life. Danny Chan really did his homework in both Bruce Lee's affectations and martial arts styles. The other actors were also perfectly cast in their respective roles, especially Yu Chenghui, who plays the part of Ip Man (Master Ye) and is master and creator of Mei Hua Tang Lang Shuang Shou Jian and veteran of many Chinese Wushu movies and TV series, and Sun Jiankui, master of Zui Quan and Jian Shu. Both got their starts in the famous Shaolin Temple trilogy.

I recommend not wasting your time watching a DVD that's only a shadow of the original TV series when you can get Hulu Plus for free for a week and watch the entire series.
