    What can I say about this? I bought this last year because I am a huge Bruce Lee Fan. I didn't watch it until I finally had some free time. This movie is only for the Die Hard Fans. First off the history of this film is actually a mini-series tv show in China. They condensed it to 183 minutes of torture. Kwok-Kwan Chan sure does look the part, but c'mon you need a real Martial Artist for this role.

    Kwok-Kwan Chan is best known for his roles in Shaolin Soccer as the goalie and Boss character in Kung-Fu Hustle. Apparently Stephen Chow hired Kwok-Kwan Chan not because of his acting ability but because of his likeness of Bruce Lee.

    What's great is they do have cameos of some great Martial Artist to list a few Micheal Jai White (Black Dynamite), Ray Parker (Darth Maul), Gary Daniels (Fist of the North Star: live action), and Marc Dacascos(of Iron Chef Fame). So you might ask, how do you take 2 seasons of tv episodes and turn it into a movie?

    You don't.

    Its all held together poorly with musical interlude of "We all love Bruce Lee." and "We will always believe in Bruce Lee." It is so cringe worthy you feel embarrassed for the singer who has to sing such garbled madness.

    Characters appear and disappear within this 183 minute epic. Characters get set up to ultimately do absolutely nothing. In this version Micheal Jai White looks menacingly out a window, then never appears again. One character other than Bruce Lee named Yellow comes back as a recurring nemesis. What is his motivation for his onslaught of revenge towards Bruce Lee? Maybe they told the story better when it was a series, but from this mess it seems like Yellow was mad at Bruce because Bruce likes to bump into people on the streets of China. Maybe Bruce dances the Cha-Cha better than Yellow?

    If your a big Bruce Lee fan you might get a chuckle out of this, but if you looking for some ass-kickery you will have to look elsewhere. Also the 183 minutes running time does not go at a brisk pace. Most likely you keep asking yourself, wait who is this? Who's that guy? Why is Bruce Lee fighting this guy, etc.
