Birth of the Dragon

Description
Set against the backdrop of 1960s San Francisco, BIRTH OF THE DRAGON is a modern take on the classic movies that Bruce Lee was known for. It takes its inspiration from the epic and still controversial showdown between an up-and-coming Bruce Lee and kung fu master Wong Jack Man - a battle that gave birth to a legend.

Ng does a fine job as Lee, but ... he doesn't capture the charisma and magnetism of Lee - understandable, since he was among the most charismatic and magnetic people on the planet.

If you like Bruce Lee, try to get Ng cast in a different biopic, but avoid this one like a one-inch punch.

...even the sporadic detours into Lee's exploits somehow manage to fall flat...

As cultural appropriation, it's a slap in the face to the very audience that might have been expected to see it.

Whatever the criticisms, Yu Xia's portrayal of Wong Jack Man makes the film well worth seeing.

An inferior effort that fails to do justice to both its central character and provocative premise.

It wants to be a character study, an explication of martial arts philosophy and an action picture ... But the film never really gets fully juiced until the climax ...

Zippy, B-movie entertainment. It proves that zeroing in on a small but significant part of a famous person's story, and how it reflects on their life at large, can often make for a sturdier entertainment than the usual long-skim approach to the biopic.

The lead actors are basically unknown to American audiences and so are easily accepted in their roles. This adds to the overall believability of the film.

How, this far into the 21st century, does a film like this get made? One that shunts Bruce Lee to the status of secondary character in a lazy and boringly familiar star-crossed romance?

There's no reason a movie in which Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen (er, "Steve McKee") duke it out with Chinatown gangsters in mid-1960s San Francisco has any business being this joyless and dull.
