I'm pretty psyched for this movie: http://lrmonline.com/news/birth-of-the-dragon-trailer-features-young-bruce-lee-vs-shaolin-master-wong-jack-man , even though the stereotype of the "ancient Chinese sage" is way over done. It looks like a fun movie as long as you don't take the history too seriously. I'm actually sort of a Wong Jack Man fan - I think he's gotten a bad rap because of the Bruce Lee-philes. Here's an interesting piece talking about the mystery behind the famous duel: http://freebrucelee.com/bruce-lee-fights/bruce-lee-battle-wong-jack-man/ .

The second link provided is a great read. I like the conclusion the author draws based on the information, and found myself compelled to agree with him.

Shannon Lee, the daughter of Bruce Lee, doesn't approve of the movie, no, not at all!! Here's the link...

If Shannon doesn't speak favorable about this movie, that's enough for me to not watch it!!

Why would anyone approve of a false, innacurate or negative portrayal of one's parent? If Lee's daughter disapproves of the way her father is being portrayed, she must have a good reason.
