i bought this dvd because it is presented as a documentary of Bruce Lee, but beware....it is not! first you get 20 minutes with poor quality (i've seen better of these scenes) black & white scenes of the old chinese bruce lee films. After that in about 2 minutes his lifestory is told (with only pictures). And then you get a complete movie with a imitator called Dragon Lee. Altough he is a pretty good fighter and does a good imitation. This is not what i expected. The movie is very very bad. And it is not Bruce Lee !!! If you're looking for a good DVD documentary of bruce lee, skip this one....it's a fake.!!!!

I bought this DVD thinking I would get a better insight into the life of Bruce Lee. I was partially right. It has some very early footage of Bruce Lee as a child actor and even a clip where Bruce and his real father acted together. Once this part of the DVD is over though, they leave Bruce Lee all together and go on to tell us about Bruce Li and Dragon Lee (Bruce Lee wannabe actors). More than half of the DVD is about these two "actors". I am greatfull to see what they have about Bruce but the rest of the DVD can be thrown out. It's as though they are trying to make you believe these other two "actors" are as good as Bruce. The first, Bruce Li, has only moderately good martial arts skills. Not even worth watching. The second, Dragon Lee, is a bit better, his skills are good, he kind of, only kind of looks like Bruce. He also tries hard to use many of Bruce's mannerisms. Still, why would they even consider adding these two "actors" to the DVD? It's supposed to be "The Real Bruce Lee" not "The Real Bruce Lee and Two Fakes" !!! I gave this DVD 2 stars because they provide some rare footage of Bruce as a child. The only "real" Bruce worth seeing on this DVD.

Well, after ordering and watching this movie, i thought well, this wasn't really that great. There are some Bruce Lee clips and stuff but i thought why would the yshow fake Bruce Lee episodes?..i mean...i'm not paying to watch that stuff. I felt that was just simply a waste of film cuz the martial arts was pretty bad as well...anyhow, i guess if your a bruce lee fan like me, you would order it otherwise, don't buy it!

The title is misleading. Less than 1/3 of this 'film' is about Bruce Lee, which features films made when he was a child actor, and a paltry amount of other photos. Then the shmucks who created this 'film' completely forget the 'real' Bruce Lee and show a wanna-be named Bruce Li whose martial arts are marginal at best. After that debacle, we get to watch a poorly made Kung Fu movie featuring another wanna-be named 'Dragon Lee', who, whilst he may physically resemble the real Bruce, is much slower, and his style of Kung Fu rather ornate and silly which the real Bruce thought was a waste. What's really a waste is any money spent on this fraud of a film. The hucksters who threw it together did so withthe obvious intent of duping the public looking for a quality documentary on the one and only late Bruce Lee. It's an insult to his legacy. The shysters who spliced this crap together should be flogged in public. Whatever you do, don't buy this film!

Hey,
I watched this film, it does have some good fight scenes of a Bruce Lee duplicate, but who is nothing compared to the actual legendary Bruce Lee. In the beginning, it contains like a 30 minute documentary on the Real Bruce Lee and his life, showing clips from his early childhood movies made in Hong Kong, before he came to the US. I think you can watch this film once for the sake of Bruce Lee, if you are his fan and the fight scenes are not bad, they are watchable!
But don't get your hopes too high and you probably will not be watching it often and you can make your own judgement about the duplicate Bruce Lee and his fighting from this film.

Thought this would be a documentary on Bruce Lee's movies. Instead it is only some footage of his early childhood and rest is the 2 imitator Bruce Lee. DO NOT buy this DVD, not worth spending even a dollar on.

For all that is sacred and holy, do not spend money on this atrocity. I came across it because it was included in a budget-priced DVD collection that I picked up, full of old so-bad-they're-good kung fu flicks, but this item isn't even good enough for that crowd. Produced by some hack named Serafim Karalexis, this film is shameless enough to call itself "The Real Bruce Lee" even though it primarily features the look-alikes that movie producers trotted out after Bruce's sudden death in 1973, hoping to make money off a gullible public that was hungry for more of Bruce's incredible martial arts mastery. There were many inferior films (with equally inferior Bruce imitators) that tried to cash in, and this one is among the most brazen.

This so-called "biopic" starts out with a basic life story of Bruce Lee, information that is freely available anywhere, and presents excerpts from some of the Hong Kong films that Bruce appeared in as a child actor in the '40s and '50s. This material might actually be of interest to collectors and historians, but there's not much of it and the video quality is horrendous. Next, the narrator tells us about Bruce's classic films, but accompanied only by still shots of movie posters, and with no actual footage. This means that the clowns behind this biopic couldn't get the rights. And then the ultimate shamelessness commences.

The narrator tells us that Bruce was so great that he spawned many knock-offs, because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. (Bring me a shovel.) After some brief footage of various useless wooden-faced imitators, this film then concludes with 63 minutes (that's right SIXTY-THREE minutes) of action scenes starring another look-alike named Dragon Lee, a crony of Karalexis.
