Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993)

Rob Cohen directs Jason Scott Lee, Lauren Holly and Nancy Kwan in this action and romance tweaked biopic of the martial arts legend.

A quite entertaining decision has been made to crowbar a Fist Of Fury style fight sequence into the narrative every 15 minutes. So a game Jason Scott Lee has to take on his co-workers and literally his demons in stunt heavy battles. The more grounded stuff is pretty cheesy, very much the “official” and “authorised” version of a star’s life and loves. If you can get past the surviving family’s whitewash, Dragon still passes an evening nicely in a trashy sorta way.
