Wham! Bam! Meet the Biggest, Little Butt-Kicker Of Them All!
4 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Bruce Lee quote - "Absorb what is useful - Discard what is not - Add what is uniquely your own."

I must admit that I am, indeed, a bit of a Bruce Lee fan, myself. I mean, this guy, with his mischievous grin, was an extraordinary martial artist whose distinctive fighting style excelled, without question, well beyond the norm.

Born in both the year (1940), and the hour, of the Dragon, Bruce Lee's venture into American cinema is what firmly cemented his reputation as being one of the 20th Century's most dynamic and enduring pop-culture icons of them all.

In the world of entertainment, Bruce Lee was (and, I guess, always will be) the ultimate butt-kicker, bar none.

Through stills, archive footage, and film clips (as well as interviews from family members, celebrities and martial arts experts) this "I Am Bruce Lee" documentary-DVD tells the story of this ambitiously-driven man who, at the very height of his career, died tragically (in 1973) at the age of 32.
