I Am Bruce Lee review

Enter the life story

How does a small Chinese guy become the movies’ greatest martial artist of all time? That question drives this reverential documentary about the man with the one-inch punch.

Director Pete McCormack (who previously helmed ace boxing flick Facing Ali ) picks out choice archive footage of Bruce Lee as well as talking-head interviews with his widow, daughter, friends and celebs (Mickey Rourke, Gina Carano, Modern Family ’s Ed O’Neill).

He even finds surprises in this familiar story, from Lee’s childhood career as the Macaulay Culkin of Hong Kong cinema to his skill as a cha-cha dancer.
