Movie Review by Jarrod
September 5th, 2007

'Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story' may not offer a definitive answer to the mystery of how the legendary martial arts star died, but it does put forward a rather bizarre (perhaps metaphorical) scenario, that he eventually loses a fight he has with a warrior in his nightmares, which looks like some kind of fearsome, ominous samurai. The movie came out in 1993, shortly after the death of Brandon Lee, Bruce's son, whose death was also mysterious, and has never been sufficiently explained, leading some to formulate conspiracy theories, or fanciful tales of a Lee family curse. 'Dragon' is based on the memoirs of Lee's widow, Linda (played by Lauren Holly), who loved her husband, and always supported him in his endeavors and struggles.

Lee himself is played by Jason Scott Lee, who looks a lot like him, and offers a great and convincing performance, even in the well-choreographed martial arts sequences, of which there are several, at different stages of Lee's career, from a karate instructor, to his sidekick role in The Green Hornet, and eventually to his status as a film star. The quiet moments he shares with Linda and baby Brandon are sincere and sweet, and the bits about his professional life are compelling.
