Birth Of The Dragon Trailer


Bruce Lee is an undying legend in both the film industry and the martial arts world. He is responsible for bringing Chinese martial arts and, indeed, films of the same theme to widespread Western popularity and is widely thought to be one of the greatest artists of all time.
