A Chinese American and Hong Kong actor, and founder of the Jeet Kune Do (The Way of the Intercepting Fist) martial arts movement. He is highly-regarded and most-loved by his movie fans and martial art followers, viewed by many martial art commentators as "inarguably" the greatest martial arts star of his generation.

"His Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, and sparked a major surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West in the 1970s .

He is noted for his roles in five feature-length films, Lo Wei's The Big Boss (1971) and Fist of Fury (1972); Way of the Dragon (1972), directed and written by Lee; Warner Brothers' Enter the Dragon (1973), directed by Robert Clouse; and The Game of Death (1978), directed by Robert Clouse posthumously."

To many of Bruce Lee's Chinese fans, surely including a lot of his Western followers, his sudden death at the age of 33 still is a mystery that remains unresolved.

Also, as we know, Bruce Lee was either murdered, or died by the excessive amount of back injury painkillers he had to take because of gangsters who cheated in a martial arts contest early in his career.

His son, Brandon Bruce Lee, died at the age of 28.
