BIRTH OF THE DRAGON (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Birth of the Dragon moves beyond the traditional martial arts film presentation and educates the audience about the mindset necessary to perform the arts at their highest level. This excellent warrior movie easily earns its watch due to 1) storyline, 2) action and fight scenes, 3) the introduction to one of Bruce Lee’s teachers, and 4) a broad view of Chinese underground operations. The film opens well and closes well. Thought provoking. Some critics have lamented the introduction of highly fictious material into the basic storyline. Do not let that deter a watch. It easily earns the monetary and time investment.
