I Am Bruce Lee (15)


Bruce Lee is universally recognized as the pioneer who elevated martial arts in film to an art form, and this documentary will reveal why Bruce Lee's flame burns brighter now than the day he died over three decades ago.

The critical consensus

There's about 30 decent minutes here. The rest is various pugilists/bad boys/pop singers bigging themselves up.

**(*)(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 19/07/2012

Martial arts fans, and particularly Mixed martial arts followers, are the target audience of this amiable fan-letter tribute to Bruce Lee.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 19/07/2012

Pete McCormack's film is a salute to the legend, but it gets nowhere near to uncovering the man.

**(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 20/07/2012

There are few surprises and the eulogising is laid on too thick but, for casual fans, it’ll do.

***(*)(*)David Edwards, Daily Record, 20/07/2912

Well-researched and essential viewing for Bruce Lee fans.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 20/07/2012

It's a protective film, carefully supervised by Lee's family.
