Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lee's legions of fans might get a kick out of this, but newcomers would do better to invest in a DVD of 'Fist of Fury'."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"If you want to kick back and bask on Bruce Lee glory for ninety minutes, "I Am Bruce Lee" definitely fits the need."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Well-researched and essential viewing for Bruce Lee fans."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Watchable documentary that's chiefly notable for its archive footage of the man himself, though it's also all rather one-sided and there's very little here that will be new to Bruce Lee fans."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
""I Am Bruce Lee" is a documentary that mostly praises a mighty icon in the world of martial arts. It's a thoughtful repackaging of information we've seen before."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Its odd agenda rather overshadows some fascinating archive footage and reminiscences from Lee's family."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Martial-arts fans will love this Bruce Lee tribute - cinephiles might be less satisfied."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"How does a small Chinese guy become the movies' greatest martial artist of all time? That question drives this reverential documentary about the man with the one-inch punch."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"It's safe to say that every inch of Bruce Lee's legacy has been covered and I Am Bruce Lee is just an excessive amount of icing added to an already well decorated cake."
‑ Chris Sawin, Examiner.com
"Features some interesting testimony, useful background material, rarely seen home movie footage and great clips..."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Baggy, braying and kinda unhelpful, this one is strictly for paid-up Lee lovers."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"Whether you're a mixed martial arts fan, a kung fu movie junkie or a pop culture enthusiast enthralled by Lee's iconic image, you'll find something in "I Am Bruce Lee" to enjoy."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
