Linda's recollection: Bruce hit first, Wong couldn't retaliate, Wong ran, Wong fell, Wong gave up.

Right now there's a series called The Legend of Bruce Lee on NetFlix. 50 episodes at 45 min each. The audio is in Cantonese so I'm using English subs.

Amazing story and may be truer to real life story of BL. I'm at episode 31 now. I'm hooked.

Sorry if that sounds offensive, but the events depicted therein look more overblown than even those of Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story a movie I admit I like a lot! But that movie is heavily skewed (it's based on Linda's book), and Dan Inosanto himself said it's "75% false." And I believe him.

Judging by the trailer, Birth obviously makes a pivotal moment in Bruce's life its centerpiece, and it's no doubt a flashy, extended showdown. The real event reportedly took very little time, as Bruce dispatched his opponent/naysayer quickly. (In the same fight in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Bruce is shown getting savagely hurt and thrown out of commission for months, which is bull. He hurt himself lifting weights.)
I love that movie! It's one of my favorites. Jason Scott Lee did an amazing job. But it did come out in 1994, I think, so I guess someone thinks it's time for a new film. I wouldn't be interested in seeing this one though.

I rate it 9/10.

Spoiler
Some of the fight scenes had quite the long takes. And an unusual (very well done) two-scene-shot (4 shot) a couple times toward the end. Sat through the credits all the way, and if you stay until the last 30 seconds or so, you'll see who the consultant was.
Spoiler
or you could bing it
