As documentaries go, it doesn't tell you a ton, but since it's Bruce Lee, it's always good watching. This made for TV special discusses how Lee influenced the world and changed things (such as Martial Arts, Film, Philosophy, Bodybuilding/Nutrition, etc.) When one of your most featured talking heads is Brett Ratner, however...that's a problem. I preferred the bits from Stan Lee, Jackie Chan, Dana White, and Lee's wife and daughter more. Entertaining, but I'd rather watch Enter the Dragon. You should too!

Apparently in addition to martial arts, movies and philosophy, Lee also pioneered protein shakes, vitamins, and specific exercise equipment. He was the first non-white hero that LL Cool J, and millions of others, saw. He inspired John Woo, the iron Fist and was great at the cha-cha and fencing. Very informative, missing Tarantino.

It's amazing that Bruce Lee did in his life time.

Not exactly the expected crowd to talk about Bruce Lee - The movie more emphasized on his ego that Hollywood exploited

Didn't care for it. Would have been better if it were only a half hour.

Bruce Lee has always been a hero of mine since my youth. This film doc shows that the same is true for most around the globe.

This is a pretty incredible documentary that is almost every bit as good as A Warrior's Journey (AWJ has a slight edge since it has the remastered and original footage from Game of Death) that is a worthy watch for any Bruce Lee fan. Seeing how he influenced not only actors and directors, but musicians, boxing, MMA, and bodybuilders is pretty interesting in its own right. The film does a good job of putting into perspective of how big Bruce Lee really was. A man whose teachings seem more relevant today than they did 30-40 years ago deserves to be as big as he is even if he's no longer here to witness it. Bruce Lee jump started martial arts filmmaking and broke the stereotypes set in Hollywood for Chinese and Asian actors during the seventies. How Bruce Lee Changed the World is a great film to pop in to show that friend who doesn't understand why everyone has such a thing for Bruce Lee or is just a great watch to give Bruce Lee fans a better insight into the legacy he left behind and the phenomenon that continues to grow everyday.

How Bruce Lee Changed the World is not your typical run of the mill documentary. It is a combination of facts about his life, film footage, and interviews with people on how he has influenced so very many people in all walks of life. My favorite parts of this are when his wife, Linda and his daughter, Shannon are talking about different aspects of his life and museums dedicated to Mr. Lee. They also show his grave site and his son, Brandon's as well. This movie s not a memorial of his death, but a celebration of his life.
