Check out The documentary Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/09/18 Full Review Audience Member Covers everything you need to know about Bruce Lee. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member "AWESOME | LEGENDARY | IMMORTAL" (86-out-of-100) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Review: What a great documentary about a unique man who will never be forgotten. I've seen many documentaries about Bruce Lee which haven't been that professional but this is a very well put together movie which shows different people's views about what they feel about this martial arts genius. I have seen a lot of the footage in this documentary before but you get to hear from his wife and his children how it was to be around Bruce Lee and how he dealt with certain matters. His death on the 23rd of July, 1973 at the young age of 32, has always been questionable, especially as he was such an active man who didn't show any symptoms of having any problems, so when he was diagnosed with cerebral edema, people started to put together there own stories about what caused his death. After many years of his passing, there hasn't been anyone who has come close to his unique style of Kung Fu and his philosophy behind his art form. This documentary really does show that he lived and breathed his own style of martial arts which is a combination of many different styles. It's hard to believe that a man, who only made 4 full movies in his career, made such a big impact in cinema today and I doubt that were going to see anyone like Bruce Lee again. Well, not in my lifetime! Great Watch! Round-Up: This documentary was directed by Peter McCormack who brought you other documentaries like Facing Ali, Hope In The Time Of AIDS, The Marijuana Wars and Uganda Rising, so he's known for his deep and emotional dramas about delicate matters. He was lucky to get so many people on board for this documentary, which includes stars from the movie, sports, UFC and martial arts world and the emotional interviews with the family members, close friends and his wife, made this movie a joy to watch. This is definitely a "Must Watch" for all of the Bruce Lee fans! I recommend this movie to people who are into their documentary/biographies about Bruce Lee's amazing life, with interviews with Linda Lee Cadwell, Kobe Bryant, Mickey Rourke, Dana White and Gina Carano. 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best documentaries of Bruce Lee's life and his influence on today's world. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Covers some new ground that isn't normally touched upon in documentaries about Bruce Lee, in this case his legacy and influence. Most interestingly of all is the assertion by one man that Lee is the 'father' of MMA. Much of the interview footage has been seen numerous times, partially because there is very little to draw upon and like always the events surrounding his death are quickly passed over.

      Robbie Collin Daily Telegraph (UK) Its odd agenda rather overshadows some fascinating archive footage and reminiscences from Lee's family. Rated: 2/5 Jul 22, 2012 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian Martial-arts fans will love this Bruce Lee tribute - cinephiles might be less satisfied. Rated: 3/5 Jul 19, 2012 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Baggy, braying and kinda unhelpful, this one is strictly for paid-up Lee lovers. Rated: 2/5 Jul 19, 2012 Full Review Ben Nicholson CineVue I Am Bruce Lee does a fine job showing just what his legacy has been as well as perfectly illustrating his charm, charisma, speed, and grace. Rated: 3/5 Jan 30, 2019 Full Review Paul Chambers Movie Chambers "I Am Bruce Lee" is a documentary that mostly praises a mighty icon in the world of martial arts. It's a thoughtful repackaging of information we've seen before. Rated: B+ Jan 28, 2013 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed If you want to kick back and bask on Bruce Lee glory for ninety minutes, "I Am Bruce Lee" definitely fits the need.
