    I’ve seen it and I’m the UK it’s a fanteastic movie

  2. Craig Stanton says:

    An anti-Bruce delight !!! From location, to Lee’s charactor..all the way to Wong SUDDENLY being a Shaolin Monk (???)…this producer definitely see ked to rewrite history with negative energy!
    LOVE THE WAY…both team up to save the girls @ the end, please….a complete innacuracy!

  3. Calvin says:

    I saw this move in Toronto, I think this movie accomplished what it set out to do, Which is to create a KUNGFU FABLE around the legend that is Bruce Lee and his fight with Wong Jack Man.By making it a lager that life legend, the cast and the crew where able to have some fun with the source material and expand on the controversial fight that put Bruce Lee on the path on his own martial art system .This is means this film is not a true lie biopic.Having said that, this movie had some great action sequences ad even thought it was told throught the voice of on the BRUCE Lee’s students it still had plenty of great “Bruce” moments and some great dIsplays of actual Wing Chun KONG FU by Bruce Lee.Overall the film satisfies he desire to see Bruce Lee kick some butt and leaves you with feeling that he is much larger than life.

  4. Larry Youree says:

    waiting to see the movie. It looks very good.

  5. Dentyne says:

    Please stop being so sensitive and just enjoy the film. This film earned so much applause at TIFF after each screening. Just be happy that there is a fresh and exciting movie about Bruce Lee, loosely based on history, using his real Chinese name, portraying a human side of him.

  6. Carriegreat says:

    The genre conceit is a really great idea, I am expecting to watch the movie

  7. Jacksun says:

    This movie will be released on Aug 25 ,2017 in North america , I saw the trailer before , it is a great movie !!!

  8. geert gevan says:

    Hi, this movie seems to be found only on fraudulent websites (links on youtube) who will ask your credit card number before you can get the film… has anybody tried them?

  9. Mette says:

  11. tomthomtwin says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing this as an action movie “nothing else” no truthfulness , not if someone is better just entertainment .

  12. Jason says:

    I think the trailer looks great. Allot of people are mad about a Caucasian telling the story in the movie. With all the greats in history there are people that were there when great things happened. Sometimes it’s great hearing it from another perspective. I like the preview. I can’t wait to see it.

  13. J-Me Leigh says:

    I’ve been waiting forever to see this movie. I can’t find it anywhere on the internet or in stores. This is ridiculous. Where is the movie?

  21. Robert George says:

    Ever since the Green haunted I’ve been a big fan of Bruce. And the passing of the great Dragons Bruce & Brandon was like part of the family. It hit home, and it stil lingers in my soul. Texas is my home but now i live in Colton California, but my wish is one day too visit the Memorial site in Washington. That’s on my bucket list . So too Bruce & Brandon God bless you and hope too visit you soon your fan for life and life after, Wing Chun for ever.

    This movie sounds like a hoax, period. Tons of reviews but nowhere to watch it. This movie has never been released and will not be released. No DVDs, no Theaters, no Online sources to watch it — does not exist. It’s an absolute joke, if anyone is wondering.
