If Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey is a tad less impressive in terms of image quality, it is due to the lack of restoration of the archive material used in the documentary. This is especially true of the Game of Death footage that makes up the entire of the last third of the feature. It's clearly of a less impressive quality than the version presented on HKL's Game of Death DVD. Scores 7.
As a documentary, Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey doesn't offer much to get excited about in its Dolby Digital 5.1 audio mix. Many of the archive clips haven't been remixed for the format, instead all you're really left with is a music track playing through the rears while the narration comes out through the centre speaker. Scores 6.
Surprisingly enough, even Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey has it share of additional features. You will find an audio commentary by director John Little, an 18 minute featurette, a music video and original trailer. Not bad for a documentary, the detail does justice to the subject matter. Scores 5.With this DVD package Warner has ensured the wait for an uncut Enter the Dragon has been worthwhile.
