A Pretty Good Documentary

"I saw this episode of Biography under the new title "Bruce Lee - Immortal Dragon" on a low-priced DVD. While it doesn't go into enormous detail and is relatively short, it is still a pretty entertaining and complete version of Bruce Lee's life. I would reccommend it mostly to aspiring fans of Lee. One part of the documentary that I liked was a nifty section on the many Bruce Lee imitators that came after Lee's death. Like most documentaries found in the bargain bin, the film clips are mostly from public domain sources.
As an extra feature, the DVD contains trailers for Bruce Lee's "The Chinese Connection," "Fists of Fury," "Enter the Dragon," and "Return of the Dragon," as well as trailers for Jackie Chan's "The Big Brawl," Steven Seagal's "Above the Law," and Chuck Norris' "The Octagon" and "A Force of One." All of these trailers are pretty entertaining. The biggest shortcoming of the DVD is that it contains no chapter stops - this is a source of frustration."
Good deal for the price

"This DVD looks to be the same show that A&E aired as their biography of Bruce Lee (1 hour version). The quality of the transfer is good - both picture and sound - but not great. Two things that annoyed me are:
1) Several motion clips and stills were used over and over, detracting from the generally good quality of the production and
2) The "extras" consist solely of several trailers for martial arts movies, some of which Bruce Lee had nothing to do with.Still, for ten bucks, it's a good deal."
