This is just a fictional story about a white guy who masters kungfu and gets the Chinese woman

In real life, Bruce Lee ended up marrying a white girl. He was discriminated by many white men and had to work hard to be a superstar. You went to Princeton University, don't you think that you should have done some research about this character first? Didn't they teach you to be critical? This isn't a movie about Bruce Lee, this is a movie about your racist imagination.WHAT IS WRONG WITH MAKING AN Asian GUY BECOME THE LEAD ACTOR IN A MOVIE?Enough is enough, we Asians are already sick of the whole whitewashing thing.

This 2016 Biopic is dull, aimless, and squanders its premise

I bought the tickets to this movie thinking it would be a cool Bruce Lee biopic. Or failing that, at least a good action film.It turns out Birth of the Dragon was NEITHER, giving the focus instead to an obscure side character, and failing to entertain on the action front.First, let's talk about the pacing. After slogging through the first half of the film, we finally get to the fight that's been promised, which actually turns out OK. But after that, we're dragged through a shoehorned side-plot about the side character's love life, which feels quite empty after it's been resolved.After leaving the theaters in disbelief that I actually spent money on this movie, I looked on the internet for alternatives to scratch my action flick itch.Lo and behold, the 1993 biopic DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY was a MUCH better action film, and a fantastic character study on the legend of a man we know today.Overall, if you're looking for a biopic, skip this movie and watch DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY instead. If you're looking for an action film, watch literally ANY OTHER movie than this one.

Boycott !! Shameless money-hungry producers and director

I seriously wanted to puke by 2/3 of the film. Lee is the antagonist here, portrayed as a trash-talking hooligan versus the wise and philosophical Wong Jack Man. The real Bruce Lee was a philosopher with depth, not an egomaniac constantly looking to "kick ass'. It's terribly sad that even after his death, greedy slimy Hollywood producers still want to give him and his family the shaft by bastardizing and disrespecting his legacy with this dumbed down cash grab trash. The producers are desperately trying to sell this piece of disgusting trash in the US and in Asia. Please make your voice heard here so the studios and distributors can see how fans of Bruce Lee feel about this film. We will boycott it! They must know we DON'T WANT TO SEE this film on a screen big or small. We will cancel our Netflix subscription if they buy this garbage. Listen, this film was made WITHOUT Bruce Lee Foundation's approval. The Lee family didn't want it but the shameless money-hungry producers (Michael London, Stephen J. Rivele, Christopher Wilkinson, Janice Williams, James Hong Pang, Leo Shi Young) and director (George Nolfi) went ahead anyway. Total disrespect.

This is the biopic of some random white guy that you've been not waiting for

Is this a joke? I am here to see Bruce Lee but they put the focus on some white guy, Steve McKee (Billy Magnussen).I got nothing against white guys, but what is he doing as the focus of a Bruce Lee biopic? I noticed a very disturbing pattern in Hollywood. They can't seem to be happy with Asian men in the lead role even in their own biopic.You may think I am kidding but look at all the ways they've whitewashed history eg The Conqueror - Genghis Khan played by John Wayne, Attila The Hun starring the guy from 300.Is it a coincidence that kulturemedia (search it) has a database of this sort of thing?But that's just the beginning. Instead of celebrating what a beast Bruce Lee is, they make him out to be some insecure and jealous loser who is butthurt over Steve McKee's success (in the film that is) Seems more like a character assassination, rather than a biopic.There's the whole "hostility to the fact that Lee's students include Caucasians." This is very one sided because it doesn't account for the century+ of rampant racism and war crimes committed by Caucasians against the Chinese including the opium wars holocaust, eight nation alliance, and the stealing of Hong Kong. None of that is mentioned.All in all, this is a terrible film. I would not recommend it for Bruce Lee fans as it tarnishes his true history with half baked lies and even focuses on some Caucasian instead.Feels like it was the director who was jealous of Bruce Lee's success.Update: Very interesting. There is a flood of generic "ignore the haters. this movie is great!" reviews. So this is what paid fake reviews look like.
