    Bruce Lee’s got to be my favorite martial arts star of all time. Jet Li’s artistic movies and Jackie Chan’s comedic stylings are fun to watch, but they can’t match Bruce Lee’s magnetic charisma. Enter the Dragon is a true classic. Jim Kelly’s role in this film’s what got me into the “Blacksploitation” films of the 1970s, a genre I feel still has yet to get its proper recognition.

    But I digress. Even as a die hard Bruce Lee fan I feel this should be worth watching. There have been numerous documentaries and biopics, but truth is that one can never get enough Bruce Lee.

    For casual fans, I suggest skipping out on the crap-tastic Hong Kong films he did (except the one where he totally beat Chuck Norris in the Roman coloseum. That fight scene is a classic case of a can of whup ass being unleashed). Instead, check out old episodes of the Green Hornet. Bruce Lee as Kato was boss on that show!

    Thanks for the comment.

    I didn’t mean to imply that this documentary wouldn’t appeal at all to die-hard Bruce Lee fans. It’s just that, at a little over 90 minutes, it’s more of a survey than a deep dive of the man’s life (a well-done survey, but a survey nonetheless), so it works best as an intro for people who may not be as familiar with him.

    However, if you’re a Bruce Lee fan (of any kind), this is worth checking out.
