Rob Cohen has great respect for the legacy of Bruce Lee, and it shows in this commentary. Cohen meticulously points out stunts that Jason scott lee performed himself. When he describes how eerily similar his script was to the actual demons that Bruce described to his wife Linda, it is indeed chilling! I love how Rob Cohen describes the subtle differences that were required to allow each fight scene to have its' own theme. Oh, and a big kissoff to the city of Seattle. They wouldn't allow the movie to film there, so San Francisco was were bruce went to college. Don't be discouraged by ret-cons such as this. The director adequately separates myth and history along the way.

This is one of those tracks that really makes you appreciate the film more. I had one opinion of the film when I saw it, and as you listen to the commentary, and he explains why early fight scenes purposely look a little rough, why some fantasy elements felt over the top, why there were emotional moments that came off too big, you realize that he actually made a much more complex film than anyone expected.

Definitely worth listening to right after you see the film.
