Reggie Hudlin and Kobe Bryant Explain Why Bruce Lee Is King

Reggie Hudlin and Kobe Bryant Explain Why Bruce Lee Is King

Bruce Lee was THE KING. Though he appeared in only four films (well four and half, if you count Game of Death, his final movie which he did not live to complete) and despite being dead for almost 40 years, he still has an extraordinary impact that can still be felt today. He was more than just martial arts, he was practically a force of nature.

Very few movies stars, past or present, had the presence and charisma that Lee had, and if you’re too young to have seen him on the big screen, then you don’t know what you’re missing.

And with that, there is a new documentary, I Am Bruce Lee, that chronicles his life, career and legacy, which will have a limited showing in selected movie theaters on Feb. 9th and 15th only.

Among those explaining Lee and what he meant to them and to the world are filmmaker Reggie Hudlin, and NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, who both appear in the trailer for the film.

To find out where the film will be showing and on what dates, go HERE.

Here’s the trailer for the film.

And as an extra added bonus, here a clip from Lee’s Return of the Dragon (AKA Way of the Dragon) also directed by Lee which was released in the U.S. a year after his death. It’s not only a damn good scene, but maybe his funniest fight scene as well. I remember when the film came out, it took me two whole weeks to see the picture for the first time because every showing was completely sold out.
