Bruce Lee, one of the most iconic Asian-American actors of all time, once famously said: “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”
But Lee was more than a pithy quote-generating machine, though. Despite the reputation that he’s developed in the years since his death, Lee is an icon of cinema history for a reason. He was a master in acting, writing, directing, and — of course — fight choreography. What’s more, Lee’s influence has been sewn into the fabric fighting movies, where it can be felt everywhere from Quentin Tarantino to The Raid 2.
These days, Lee is more known for his influence than the films he actually created, which is a shame considering how good the movies he starred in, choreographed, and created are. Now, we’re here to break down the best Bruce Lee movies.
(Note: Lee’s films were often renamed in different regions of the world, meaning each film has a few different titles depending on where they were released.)
