    Anybody heard about this one? Well I just heard about it today and I had no idea it existed. A new movie based on Bruce Lee's life? Hell yeah! I want to see it! Until I saw this trailer and my excitement switched to utter loath! Just watch this trailer and you'll find out why.

    Didn't Wong train Lee from a young age? The hell is this?

    True, but that seems to focus on a certain few key events, such as him creating Jeet Kune Do, and the Eastern councils banning him from teaching Westerners.

    I love biopics but this one does not look any good to me. The acting does not feel natural to me.

    I'm fine with it. The fighting is what I'm interested in.

    Bruce Lee is too much a mythical figure to make a good biopic from, like Elvis.

    After 284467392277Q384 movies about Ip Man in the last decade or so, I think it's okay to have a second movie tackling a piece of Bruce Lee's life.

    As long as it attempts to accurately portray his philosophy, I'm fine with some artistic license when it comes to historical events.

    He's less mythical than Wong Fei-hung, who's life has been the focus of more than 100 movies, so I think we're good.

    I just saw a trailer for this on YouTube

    WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!? Why would you let WWE Films do this?!?!?

    Ohhh, this is good!

    We Saw 'Birth of the Dragon' to See How Offensive it is To Asians and Bruce Lee

    The Ip Man argument is the only reason I'm not harder on this than I could be.
