In 1964, a young Bruce Lee owns and operates a San Francisco Kung Fu Academy, specializing in the Chinese martial art Wing Chun. Lee cares for his students, providing advice, roles as extras in his upcoming projects, and defending them from the gangs of Chinatown. One of Lee's students, Steve McKee, spars with Lee while fighting in anger, causing Lee to counter and embarrass him. McKee and Vinnie Wei work for the latter's mother's laundry business, where they find out that master Wong Jack Man is on a pilgrimage from China to observe the Kung Fu scene in the United States. While carrying out a delivery to the China Gate restaurant, McKee falls for an employee, Xiulan, who is forbidden to communicate with anyone on the outside. One night, McKee sneaks over to the restaurant to give her a grammar book, teaching her fellow roommates basic English..

I had no idea that Bruce Lee was a martial artist. The only martial arts film that I have ever seen was Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon" and I thought that was the best. This film is about the early life of Bruce Lee, who is a well known martial artist and star of a TV show called "Enter the Dragon". His girlfriend dies and he is then a street fighter. His girlfriend's father wants him to return to the TV show and do it full time. Bruce Lee agrees to do this, and when he gets back he is very angry and angry. This film is a great film, it is a true story, and it is very well done. The acting is very good, especially the acting of Michael Clarke Duncan, who plays Bruce Lee's father. I have never seen any of his other films, but I am sure that he is a great actor. This film is very well done, and I think it is very interesting to see the life of Bruce Lee, and the things that he did. This film is a great film, and I recommend that you see it.

I remember when I first saw the trailer for this movie. I thought it looked like it would be just another Hollywood-produced action movie, but it turned out to be something else. It's about a man who becomes a hero, but has to live with the consequences. I'm not sure if I was ready for it at the time, but I was really impressed by it. There were some things that I didn't like about the movie. One of them was that it was very dark, and you couldn't see the people in the movie. The other one was that there were a lot of action scenes, but not a lot of dialog. That was okay, but I wanted to see more dialogue, and the dialog was very slow. The action scenes were good, and I loved the fight between the dragon and the dog. I think that this movie was very underrated, and I think that it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.

The new movie "The Expendables 2" is not as good as the first one, but it is a good action movie. The main character is the new recruit (Kevin Nash) who is in the police force. He has to fight a gang of gangsters led by Rico (Troy Garity). The gangsters are trying to take over the town and the main character is the only one who can stop them. The movie is very fast-paced and has many action scenes. The acting is very good, and the story is good. I have not seen the first movie, so I cannot compare this one to the first one. The movie is worth watching.

A powerful film with a lot of emotions. I have always loved the character of Andy Lau, I feel like he is a great actor. I like the movie and the fact that it is based on a real story. It was very interesting to see what happened in the past and how it changed the present. I really liked the movie and I hope to see it again.

The Chinese in Hollywood are usually a kind of good guys, and this movie seems to confirm that. In fact, there is some indication that the Chinese are not as innocent as they seem. If this movie is accurate, it is a cautionary tale about the dangers of nationalism. The Chinese are portrayed as either very weak, or extremely strong. It is hard to tell which is more true, since the movie does not explain why the Chinese are so powerful in Hollywood. This is a good movie, but the movie is not as good as the book.

This movie was a little better than the first one but still not up to par. I would recommend seeing the first one first and then the second one. I also think that the action scenes are a little better but not enough to make up for the slow pacing. There is not much to say about the acting. I found it to be good but not great. I think that this movie is going to be one of those sequels that is not as good as the original. This is one of the first movies that I would recommend seeing before the sequel.

I loved this movie. It's a great mix of historical and martial arts action. It's a great story of a child, a man, and a girl who has a brother who is a great fighter. The fight scenes are great, and the cinematography is great. It's also a great story of redemption and of friendship. I also really enjoyed the music. I think the music is very important to the movie, and it's great to hear it in the background. The music is what makes the movie great. It adds to the emotion of the movie and makes it more powerful. The music is very important to the movie, and it's great to hear it in the background.

This film is a tribute to the martial arts films of the 1970s. The style is not the same, the fights are not as well choreographed as in later films, and the story is a bit on the slow side. But the fight sequences are still very impressive, and the acting is very good. The main characters are very likable, and there is a lot of action, both in the streets and in the mountains. In fact, the whole film is very well-shot, and the cinematography is very good. The only drawback is that the story is a bit on the slow side, and the last few minutes are a bit too drawn out. Overall, this is a great film, and I recommend it to any martial arts fan. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I would give this movie an 8/10

The story of a young girl in China during the mid-20th century, who falls in love with a wealthy man, only to have him leave her. The man's family tries to get him to come back to the city, but he doesn't want to leave his girlfriend. The movie is a good love story, and it is a story about a young girl who was in love with a rich man, who had to leave her, but when she falls in love with a rich man, she must leave her. The movie is very good, the story is very good, and the acting is good. I really liked this movie. I give it an 8/10.
