Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey & In Pursuit Of The Dragon (MVD DVD)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Main Programs: C+

Bruce Lee, the man, the legend, the icon... who was he? What did he stand for? What was his legacy? This double feature of Bruce Lee explores his past, not only his martial arts, but his film making career and what he was trying to teach. He was seen as a foreigner, but his views changed a generation of film making. Along with some lost footage, see the places he filmed in and meet some of the people who worked with him.

This Bruce Lee set comes from a two part series, Part I, A Warrior's Journey explorers Bruce Lee's past and how he went from martial arts to film making. He challenged tradition Gung-fu with his Jeet Kune Do, with teaching non Asians. In film making he was outcasted by Hollywood saying a China man could never take a lead role in films and  then he proved them wrong. Part II, In Pursuit of the Dragon, visits places where he shot his films, while most of them have changed, there some places that are still there. Meet some people who talked, walked, worked and filmed with him share their experiences with Bruce Lee. His struggles made him a hero, his legacy made him an icon, and see why people still remember as the man he was.

This film was more of a biography or highlights of Bruce Lee's life, while Bruce is an icon and credit towards Asian. He is shown in films, in particular fighting and martial arts should be real in films. It explores some of his thoughts and ideas, and how he represented it through his martial arts and films. He created the ever-popular idea of Asian action superstars and now, some people believe all Asians are Bruce Lee's, Jackie Chan's, or Jet Li's... In all, if you are a Bruce Lee fan you would want this for the lost footage they found in this film. There are no extras.
