This comedic joke, "The legend of Bruce Lee" took 50 dragged-out episodes to tell the same story, an inaccurately at that.

Don't waste your time.

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.

The fight scenes were excellent, very entertaining.

nothing really make sense in this movie , if you need a movie to fall asleep this is it!

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).

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.

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.

It's understandable because real life is much more boring than real life.

At times the film speaks like a Chinese propaganda film.

Uninspiring, long, uninformative and almost unentertaining.

Well worth watching.

But the cinematography, sets, etc. were very nice and enjoyable to watch.

The fights are detailed and entertaining.

I still enjoyed it, the guy that plays Bruce Lee looks and acts exactly like him and the action scenes are quite good.

Having watched all 50 episodes, I have to say I did enjoy this series, albeit being draggy and boring at times.

This is a confusing part because Bruce was told by yip man to wait till the 3rd round and first take the beatings.

Their love story was very bland and uninteresting (I felt she was just as bland and uninteresting too).
