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-

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.

(this review is for the 2010 movie, not the 1976 one)

CCTV's "The Legend of Bruce Lee" is the first biopic production of the Little Dragon to receive wide distribution in over fifteen years, following Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. Originally broadcasted in fifty episodes in China, this three-hour edited film seems to be the best version of it that North America is going to receive, and thus I'll be reviewing it on its own merits. On the bright side, it's a relatively lavish production covering more aspects of Lee's life than I had expected, but on the down side, the movie uses its long runtime to be long-winded on certain subject to the point of boring you with them, and its action content certainly leaves a lot to be desired.

The story focuses on the life of Lee (Danny Chan, Kung Fu Hustle) from his late high school days up to his death, highlighting events such as his introduction to wing chun, his struggle to teach martial arts to non-Asians in America, his development of jeet kune do, and his film career. An ongoing subplot about a fictional rivalry with a character known as Yellow Skin (Li Yuan, more or less taking the role of Wong Jack Man) is also prevalent. Things like his overcoming the race barrier and his relationship to his family are more or less glossed over (wife Linda, played by Michelle Lang, is present throughout the film but her character isn't expounded upon).

This DVD takes the bits and pieces of Bruce Lee's life and makes an attempt
to portray it. Fight scenes, etc. try to depict Bruce Lee at the pinnacle of his career. Although it is said that imitation is the highest form of flattery, this DVD falls somewhat short. As for drama and acting, Bruce Li did a splendid job portraying Bruce Lee as a person and his interpersonal relationships; and Dragon Lee did a splendid job of portraying Bruce Lee's power, skill, and exceptional physique as a martial artist. This DVD falls
short of both of them. It is a very difficult task to imitate the master, yet the legend lives on for decades following Bruce's death in 1973 at the age of 32.
