    Great fight scenes but the story wasn’t even close to what really happened in real life.

    I actually really enjoy this movie although I have to say that the end of this movie is basically the last level leading up to a boss fight of every hack and slash button mashing beat him up video game ever

  • Full Comic Alchemist

    The movie is just a myth using the legend that is Bruce Lee to sell but make no mistake it is undoubtably complete fiction compared to the actual events it's trying to be based on

    Except that one inch punch was a four inch punch. It's impossible to generate any for from one inch away. 2, maybe and for sure 3 or better as long as the punch is generated from dead center to center of mass.

    The movie was a stinker. Didn't care about the story. The fights were 'meh'. It was just slow and dull. And I love Bruce Lee. Imagine they take something or someone you absolutely love and they make it dull.....and you have Birth of the Dragon.

    Come on Jeremy, when you review a movie remember you are reviewing it for everyone who watches your channel.. the story and what you want a movie to be are 2 different things.. don't hate on a movie if you don't know anything about the character

    Just the fight alone with Bruce n Wong jack Mann in the trailer is enough for me to not see the movie.

    apparently the actual fight between bruce and wong only took a few seconds, wong jack mon was a traditional martial artist but he wasn't a monk. and bruce lee won the fight with wong on the ground.

    It was about showing Bruce the limit of his kung-fu and how to be humble and surpassed that and be better not make it about money and fame. If you recall Bruce realized and said he have much to learn and this is where he adopt the new format of wing chung which they utilize in IP man series.

    I enjoyed it as a MARTIAL ARTS MOVIE. The actors read their lines right where I believed they portrayed "A" Character as appose to "The" character. None of us here really knows Bruce Lee on a personal level to know how he was really like off screen. Besides, people can mistake CONFIDENCE as being COCKY. Bruce Lee was confident in his skills... This movie was a different take on the events that happened in China Town. Dragon already came out with his Bio, so the director can't make another one, it will be redundant. We already know what his life was. Also, this movie gave a different angle to Wong Jack Mans point of view... Take into consideration any professional fight, each referee scoring may not have the exact score. Even in other professional sports like football, basketball, or baseball. So people watching the fight are going to have a different interpretation based on what angle they were watching at...I give it 3 out of 5 stars!

    As a Bruce fan, the Legend of Bruce Lee on Netflix has been really good. Covers a lot of ground in regards to his past prior to stardom.

    wong jack man Isnt even a monk.... he is a kung fu master based in cali, dont know if he is still active...but he is still alive...this concept was so stupid.

    I actually liked Birth of a Dragon. Yes, the ending was contradictory to Won Jack Man's ideals, but the movie had messages, insight, and some lessons about life. I don't care what people say, it was not that bad.

    Bruce Lee is literally a modern myth. I don't need the truth about him. I love that about him. Legends are so much more awesome than the real thing!

  • Body Health Massage Clinc

    During the 60s-70s, China was closed to the USA because of Cultural Revolution and political alliance. During that period, people were getting locked up for learning English because the government thinks English is the language of the enemies. Thus, making it nearly impossible for a Shaolin monk to travel all of the way from China to US just for some kung Fu fight. Another thing is Shaolin was not even popular during the 60s-70s. The whole shaolin-kung fu craze did not even started till the early nineties because of Jet Li's shaolin temple. This movie is made for the stupid gringos who do not know junk about recent history.

    If Mr. Bruce Lee started training in 詠春(Wing Chun) when he was around 16 yrs old under Mr. Ip Man. And Mr. Ip Man was the only Martial Arts teacher Mr. Lee had. Then he went to America when he was 18 yrs old. Mr. Lee opened his first school in Seattle in 1963 at 23 yrs old. In the 日本の武道 or Japanese Martial Arts one needs to have their 免許(めんきょ) Menkyo or Martial Arts teaching license to teach and promote people in a given style of Japanese Martial Arts. Does anyone know if Mr. Ip Man gave Mr. Lee a Martial Arts license to teach Wing Chun? Like I've stated in the Japanese arts one needs to have their Menkyo to teach a given style of Martial Arts such as 極真会館空手 Kyokushin Kaikan Karate I am not 100% for sure if it is the same in the Chinese Martial Arts.

    Watch the legend of Bruce Lee on Netflix it's all in subs but it's a deeper look into the life of Bruce Lee I'm on episode 40 right now and if possible can YOU PLEEEEEEEEASE do a review


    this movie is based off a rumour and the story is Fictional ! and you my friend an ignorant movie Buff . how in the hell you dont know anything about bruce lee ? Dude He Changed Kung Fu Movies and made the western audience know the word Kung Fu ! he is the first asian martial artist to star in a hollywood movie with the biggest company Warner Bros . this movie is a disgrace

  • Mad Buskin'
    Mad Buskin' Year ago

    Bruce Lee moved to America teaching wing chun (which he was never a master he had only finished about half of his training) he gained a name for himself because he was teaching gung fu ( not kung fu because that's northern style where wing chun is a southern style) to westerners and people of different backgrounds and that upset the martial arts community in the San Francisco area. Lee was only 23. Wong jack man was no monk he was a talented wushu teacher who wanted to beat Bruce to make a name for himself. The fight lasted three minutes but Bruce was disappointed that he let the fight last that long so he decided to incorporate other styles into his art like boxing, tkd, savate and judo and created his own style known as Jeet Kune Do the art of the intercepting fist. Absorb what is useful, disregard what is useless and add what is essentially your own.

  • Christian charles

    F*** Hollywood
    They've butchured Bruce Lee's History.
    They adapted a Stephen King series by taking place AFTER??
    And they made a film of text Icons.

    This movie should've been so much better. I wanted to see a story about Bruce Lee, not some bland white dude who really couldn't even act. Definitely NOT awesometacular.

  • Trinidad The Island Man

    A weak weekend? Yeah, I felt fine skipping this movie, but there were some other great shows; Ingrid Goes West, Brigsby Bear, and still Wind River all got "Shaka Thumbs Up" fom me Jeremy. As for my Bruce Lee choice; as much as I love Enter the Dragon - The Game Of Death is my fav! I even ejoyed Dragon withJason Scott Lee! :D

  • MovieFiendz
    MovieFiendz Year ago +1

    I totally agree. The gangster melodrama was just there to pad out the running time. The American character bland, not due to the actor but the lack of backstory or motivation. Worth a rental for the last two action scenes, easily could have been a way better film.

    Ok dude being a true fan of master Lee I will just say this it's not about winning or losing its the road to enlightenment, at the time we meet master Lee, he opened a school , among his many students were Steve McQueen who tells part of the story, he is warned not to teach blacks or whites, this is the source of tension in Oakland California , but for Master Bruce Lee he would teach who wanted to learn, now in real life 18 people saw the fight, to this day their are 18 versions of what was scene that night, Master Wong Jack Man, as he states came from China to see the growth of the Art in America when his path came into contact with, Lee the film is I retelling of there meetings, this is what the film is about, if you don't know say you don't know, to dismiss it with out trying to understand it is wrong, and your manner in how you looked at it greatly shamed and showed no Honor to Master Lee,I hope you read this and pause because if someone said your beloved Star Wars was pure shit, you would take notice!
    To think I thought you were cool!

    Great review as always. 👍🏻
    On a side note: I'd be interested in seeing a review of the new Netflix original Death Note movie. (I myself was never a fan of the Anime), however it was the casting of the live action film as well as the presentation and visuals in the trailer that piqued my interest (i.e. Willem Dafoe as Ryuk).
    Personally , I thought it was a bit, well, underwhelming. Not a terrible movie mind you, just not quite on par with what I expected. Anyways, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts/perspective on the film.
