Well worth watching.

Just finished watching the last episode (50) and wanted to add my twopenn'orth. Danny Chan portrays Bruce Lee to perfection - it's difficult to believe that this is not Bruce! Other characters are represented well, too. Ed Parker and Chuck Norris are particularly noteworthy, likeness and mannerisms are accurately portrayed. There appear to be parts that stray a little from other reports and biographies, but generally, the series seems to be pretty factual. The only reason I have only given a rating of 9 is that, for me, the story annoyingly jumps some (small) aspects of Bruce's life and what I consider as important details leading up to his death! As soon as I find time, I WILL watch this again and I am certain that it will be even better. It has rekindled my childhood interest in Bruce and I am currently reading everything that I can find about his life and work. I should add that I watched this in Chinese and understood most, but my wife was interpreter/translator for those parts that used more complex Chinese language. I hope that the Chinese speech is subtitled, and what 'should' be in English is dubbed, for release on foreign markets, since much of the character of the series would be lost if it were entirely in English!

Produced with only $6.4 million but money well spent 50 1-hr episodes

After watching the entire series and having rewatched selective episodes more than once, I reflect on what great acting, choreographs, and the profound impact it has on my life. First, Danny Chan and Lang without a question has done a superb job as well as well as many of its supporting actors/actress. It feels that everyone has something to contribute to the Bruce Lee story, beyond just getting paid. The fights are detailed and entertaining. There are areas of the story that may never be verifiable but nonetheless based on a true story for the most part. At times, certain continuity may get annoying but overall, positives far outweights the negative. If the budget is ten times higher with better editing and footage -- I would give it a 10. For example, police scenes shows "NYPD", I mean it's Seattle. There are modern post-2000 cars parked all over the place on the curbs, etc. But that's okay because we know it's only $6.4million and they instead focus on acting, story, and choreographing. This has inspired me to read more about Bruce, study his philosophies like I never did, and the profound change in my own life that anything is possible. After almost 2 years, I cannot believe no one sub in English yet so I have begun the translation project myself with a partner because I want the world to know Bruce.

Observation on the "Legend of Bruce Lee" production

Definitely, the "Legend of Bruce Lee" needs the Cantonese and English versions. At least the subtitles be in English to make it complete.This is the first time I have ever seen a martial art production that depicts the details on how and why in addition to demonstrations. For martial art lovers, this is the ultimate treasure. The quality of production equates the "Saving Private Ryan" and Jet Li's "Huo Yuan Jia".In a lot of ways, Bruce Lee resembled the Chinese national hero, Huo Yuan Jia. They are determined, fearless, crazy about martial art and creative (they both created their own styles), but most important of all, they love their own country and hated their countrymen being called the "Sickmen of East Asia".I have bought the DVD and recommend it to my friends. I will watch it over and over to enjoy it more.

A must see for true Bruce Lee fans

To call yourself a real Bruce Lee fan, and then credit Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story as being better than the Legend of Bruce Lee T.V. series is totally absurd!The Legend of Bruce Lee T.V. series is clearly the most in-depth attempt any studio has ever made, in the telling of the life of martial arts master Bruce Lee. I have watched all 50 episodes, and as an avid Bruce Lee fan, I was very much pleased with what I viewed. There is enough information about the series on the web, so there is no need for me to go into an in-depth review, or spoil anything for those who may not have seen it.I will say, that this series was very well done, despite it's budget. The acting was great, and the fight choreography was very good. Danny Chan was excellent as Bruce Lee. The best that I have ever seen. Did he mimic Bruce? Of course he did. He was playing the part of Bruce Lee after all! Were there continuity issues, and inconsistencies? Of course. Name one biopic that has gotten every single thing correct. Plus, not one of us knows every single detail of Bruce's life. I was born in 1963. I have been a fan of Bruce Lee since I laid eyes on The Big Boss & Fist of Fury. These were two of the first martial arts movies my late father took me and my older bother to see in the early 70's This began for me and my brother a lifelong interest in martial arts, and anything Bruce Lee related. If you're a true fan of the martial arts master you will view this series just like I did.The Legend of Bruce Lee is a treasure for every true fan of the master Bruce Lee!
