Reviews:
"[W]hat’s most striking about BIRTH OF THE DRAGON is how irreverent director George Nolfi and screenwriters Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele are willing to be toward Lee..." - 08/24/2017 Los Angeles Times


"The movie’s linchpin is a real-life battle between Lee and a Shaolin monk, Wong Jack Man, which an opening title says was reputed to have been spurred by Wong’s objection to Lee’s 'kung fu for all' ethos." - 08/25/2017 New York Times
