Top Bruce Lee Film
nicknamefree | brooklyn, n.y. United States | 08/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is hands down the BEST piece ever done on Bruce Lee.Ever.
George Tan and Toby Russell do a magnificent job of explaining the true nature of Bruce Lee's death one step at a time.Aside from this,rare and unseen footage of Bruce is all over this film:childhood films(all unseen),kung fu forms,demonstrations(Hong Kong television), and candid film of Bruce make this the rarest footage ever put since Warrior's Journey.
The bonus materials are amazing-
interviews with George Lazenby,Charles Lowe and Bruce and Betty Ting Pei's doctors are here.Each runs 15-20 minutes.Also Ted Wong,Bruce student gives a demo and talk about Bruce.
Audio commentary is with George Tan and co-writer Davis Miller. Then Miller has a phone conversation with Bruce's doctor. Great stuff.
Buy this DVD at all costs if you are into Bruce Lee.
Also check out Fist of Unicorn and The Young Bruce Lee."
Excellent documentary!!

"Wow!Finally,a no holds barred account of how Bruce Lee REALLY died!
The documentary is the best I've seen to date,and the rare footage is amazing.Bruce as Jerry Lewis and James Dean is priceless(clips from his childhood films).Some awesome demos by Bruce and lots of photos.
Bonus materials are plentiful.Loads of extra and extended interviews,and a killer audio commentary.
Very good work on the whole."
Good but could have been better

"This is not for real Bruce Lee fans as we have all seen the childhood footages, imitators, and movie documentaries many times. The so called "never before seen footages" can also be seen in other Bruce Lee documentaries and demonstration tapes. What is most upsetting is the use of Bruce bio movie clips when talking about Bruce's movies. Why weren't actual Bruce Lee movie clips used to better describe his movies and martial arts ability. The only part that were worth paying for are the interviews and demonstrations."
BEST FROM VIDEO ASIA

"[...]They have done Bruce Lee right with this documentary. The actual on hand account of the Doctor's report is amazing. And the information given in this DVD is simply the best ever. If you ever wanted to know what actually happened to the King of Martial Arts-Bruce Lee then this is the best story on DVD ever compiled, and this is the one you want to get hand over fist! CHING! Respects to you on this one Video Asia.
