Bruce Lee, My Brother


A biopic about his early life, as told by his brother Robert Lee. It tells the story before he moved to USA..

It's a Hong Kong production, so hopefully they won't have completely raped his legacy like the mainlanders did with Ip Man.

Should watch this, and Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story right after

Apparently this is the first part of a trilogy! :

I'm heading back to HK in a few days, hopefully i'll catch this when I come back.

Detective Dee and also Legend of Fist were decent hit (except for the latter one) but we shall see.

bruce Lee My brother has a really really good cast so hopefully it'll be decent.

I hope so too!!! Can totally see the BS and China propaganda...then again it happens alot in Hollywood Productions too. Funny in Ip Man the ending made it sound like China defeated Japan..which is untrue.

exactly, and they said that he fled to Hong Kong to avoid the Japanese, which is bullshit. He was fleeing from the fucking PLA. If they got their hands on him, there definitely wouldn't be an Ip Man movie. Or a Bruce Lee for that matter.

I wanted to give a full review on this movie. There are a lot of things that needs clarification and I have you warn you all on what the movie is all about BEFORE you go and watch it. Don't worry, there aren't any spoilers.

This is NOT AN ACTION movie. Please note, there won't be a fight scene for the 1st 1:30 hr of the movie, in fact, if you are watching it for the action, you're really going to give the movie a 1/10.

First of all, this movie was pretty much done very well on a certain aspect. For those who are true Bruce Lee fans and wants to know more about his family, his entire history, that was done really well. If some of you are in your early 30s, you would really appreciate the tiny details they put into this movie. Eg// TST ferry station and train station was exactly what it looks like back in the 1960s (with the help of digital editing) (yes, there was a train station there at TST). Bruce Lee kicking the bucket and a rat coming out, YES, that was in fact what happened back in the days. Bruce Lee grew up in the movie industry and all the classical characters were a great insight and it brought back a lot of memories (you must be 30+ years old to appreciate these classic opera characters).

The costume design, the acting by the all the actors were done really well. Bruce Lee, Nicholas Tse's sister (I'll call her Ting Ting cause that's her chinese name) did an OK job,. 劉浩龍 who was the dude that played the 'assistant' did a fantastic job, and so did 陳奐仁 (the dude with glasses)and 歐陽靖 (AKA MC Jin). It's interesting how there were a lot of young pop stars being starred in the movie.

There were only LIMITED fighting scenes and it was really really boring. There were in fact more cha cha scenes (yes, Bruce Lee was really good at cha cha) Clearly the director did NOT do a good job filming it and I didn't like it at all on the amount of screentime on the fighting. I think IP MEN really screwed up the industry on the future kung fu movies.

History, historical settings 9/10
Fighting scenes, 3/10
Characters and acting 8/10

Great movie! Awesome cinematography, good cast, good acting, very high quality sets, engaging. One of the best HK films to date!

Caution: If you have ADD and can only enjoy movies that have explosions every 5 minutes then this film is not for you.

great sets, cinematography, cast, acting sure

but the story my goodness... you'd have to be a very big fan of bruce lee to be able to sit through this

its very slow and imo needs a lot of editing because they basically try to tell everything... almost right down to him taking bathroom breaks (maybe they showed that too i found myself daydreaming quite a bit)

if you're a great fan of him you'll love it i suppose...


best hk film to date? thats going much too far even when considering most hk film has sucked for a long time (with the odd gems)
