“ Unfortunately, THE LEGEND OF BRUCE LEE is little more than a long (VERY long), drawn out remake of DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY; the producers even go so far as to have "Lee" taken out exactly as he was in DRAGON (attacked from behind, resulting in a spinal injury).
“ This comedic joke, "The legend of Bruce Lee" took 50 dragged-out episodes to tell the same story, an inaccurately at that.
“ The fights are detailed and entertaining.
“At times the film speaks like a Chinese propaganda film.
“ Xenophobic propaganda not befitting the Chinese people and more like that of a Cold War propaganda film than a tribute to one of the Greatest Most Beloved and Respected Chinese American figures of all time that should have been used as the opportunity as it was to bring both races together4.
“ Having watched all 50 episodes, I have to say I did enjoy this series, albeit being draggy and boring at times.
“ I still enjoyed it, the guy that plays Bruce Lee looks and acts exactly like him and the action scenes are quite good.
“ Well worth watching.
“ Their love story was very bland and uninteresting (I felt she was just as bland and uninteresting too).
“ nothing really make sense in this movie , if you need a movie to fall asleep this is it!
“ The fight scenes were excellent, very entertaining.
“Despite all of this, though, the aspect of this series that makes it compelling to continue watching is the psychological thread of these episodes that examines the fomenting of Bruce Lee's martial arts philosophy.
“ Don't waste your time.
“ Uninspiring, long, uninformative and almost unentertaining.
“ But the cinematography, sets, etc. were very nice and enjoyable to watch.
“It's understandable because real life is much more boring than real life.
“ Thing is, don't waste your time unless you don't mind watching a soap opera about some "different" version of who the real Bruce Lee was.
“ This is a confusing part because Bruce was told by yip man to wait till the 3rd round and first take the beatings.
“ Very entertaining .
