Jason Scott Lee and Lauren Holly star in this unforgettable glimpse into the life, love and the unconquerable spirit of the legendary Bruce Lee. From a childhood of rigorous martial arts training, Lee realizes his dream of opening his own kung-fu school in America. Before long, he is discovered by a Hollywood producer (Robert Wagner) and begins a meteoric rise to fame and an all too short reign as one of the most charismatic action heroes in motion picture history. Hailed as "an immeasurably entertaining movie" by CBS-TV, Dragon is ablaze with comedy, touching romance and spectacular martial arts sequences.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story is a biographical drama loosely based on the life of world-famous martial artist Bruce Lee and contains violence and some racist language. The movie carries a positive message overall, as Bruce Lee (Jason Scott Lee) travels to America and succeeds as a result of his hard work and martial arts prowess. Lee and his White love interest -- and later wife -- Linda (Lauren Holly) are vocal opponents of the racism they face because of their relationship. Linda also inspires Lee to overcome adversity when he is at his lowest ebb. Violence features throughout. Lee fights various attackers -- some of whom are armed with weapons -- which often results in bloody injuries. After one altercation, Lee requires a lengthy stay in hospital and a period of rehabilitation. There are two sex scenes between Lee and Linda. Both are shown topless from the back as they hug and kiss. They later sit on their bed together in their underwear and talk. Occasional swearing features, along with racist language throughout. "Yellow" is frequently used as a slur for Asians, along with "Chink" and "gook." There is minor consumerism -- some extravagant spreads are shown at social gatherings, and Lee is encouraged to spend money on material goods, as well as women.
