    Default "How Bruce Lee Changed The World" - History Channel documentary

    Anyone watched this 2 hour documentary last night?

    I am not a big Bruce Lee fan, but I was able to catch the repeat at midnight (yeah, I stayed up 'til 2 am to watch this). In this documentary, it discussed Lee's influences on everything from movie-making to mixed martial arts, and from music to his philosophies. Notable people paying tribute included director Brett Radner (of the "Rush Hour" trilogy), director John Woo, Sugar Ray Leonard, LL Cool J, Jackie Chan, Stan Lee (creator of Spiderman and is apparently making a computer-generated movie on Bruce Lee), etc. While there're many documentaries on Bruce Lee, this one mixed things Bruce did in his life while he was alive and the influences they have until now. Quite an eye-opener....especially those black-and-white films of Bruce demonstrating his techniques in a packed gym. Highly recommended!

    Grew up on Bruce Lee and Jeet Kune Do. Absolutely one of my role models as a kid. He was an amazing individual. I still enjoy watching his movies.

    I have been waiting for this for a long time, as Bruce Lee is one of my childhood idols. It did not disappoint and had a lot of footage that I have never seen before. He is a true legend.

    I thought the special was pretty crappy. It was more of an advertisment for the people involved than it was a deep history of Bruce Lee.
