Lauren Holly Actor. Robert Wagner Actor. Written by John Wiggins. This is a great movie. Nice action scenes, nice soundtrack, nice photo But it's not a biography of the greatest fighter of all time: Bruce Lee. I could tell all the mistakes I saw in the movie but here's just a few: In the movie: he is a unique child Reality: He had one brother and two sisters and he didn't live with his father only, he had his mother.
He didn't leave Hong-Kong because of the cops what the? And please! What is that story of the ghost from the depts of hell?!?!? No, if you want to make a great action movie, good, go ahead, the right way to do it. But if you want to make a bio of a true legend, please tell the true story.

Cohen gave himself a cameo as the director of Enter the Dragon. The opening scene was filmed at an 18th-century temple in Hong Kong which Cohen found while scouting potential locations, and incorporated the theme of a demon chasing Bruce, as Cohen wanted the audience to understand from the beginning that the film would not be a traditional biopic.
Cohen wanted to film in Seattle, but found little cooperation from local authorities and was denied permission to film at the University of Washington , which Lee had attended. It was subsequently decided to merge the events of Bruce's life that occurred in Seattle with those that occurred when he later moved to California, where much of the filming took place.
Filming was delayed multiple times; Cohen had a heart attack on 6 February , delaying production for a month;  a separate delay was caused when Jason became ill. Cohen sped up production so that the cast and crew could vacate the area earlier than planned.
Conversely, some scenes set in Hong Kong were filmed in California. The crowd scenes during the premiere of The Big Boss were shot in Macao, as permission to close roads and shoot scenes involving hundreds of extras could not be obtained in Hong Kong where the scene was set. Over 1, shots were taken for the film, with over 1, of them being just for the film's eight fight scenes.
One stuntman received a minor cut during the hall of mirrors scene, although there were no other injuries. The hall of mirrors scene was filmed with the camera and the crew hiding inside of mirrored boxes, so that they wouldn't be visible in reflections.
Cohen inserted several references to Bruce's actual films; the extended warm-up routine by Bruce and Johnny before their fight is a reference to the extended warm-up routine by Bruce and Chuck Norris before their fight in The Way of the Dragon.
Cohen decided to expand the theme of Bruce's father believing a demon was after his son, by showing the demon later coming for Bruce's own son, Brandon. Filming was completed and Dragon was less than two months away from opening when Brandon died in a shooting accident while filming The Crow in March With Cadwell's approval, Cohen chose a Saint Augustine quote he originally had on the front of the script: "The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering", as he felt it applied to both Bruce and Brandon.
