Bruce Lee daughter angry for father’s rendition in Tarantino’s film

3 min read

Quentin Tarantino’s acclaimed new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also features Chinese action hero Bruce Lee, who died in 1973. His daughter Shannon is not at all happy with the interpretation and even calls it a caricature of her father.

It was very painful for Shannon to watch the comedy about the American film industry in the 1960s, in which Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play the leading roles.

“Bruce comes across as an arrogant, hot-tempered bastard and not as someone who had to fight three times as hard to achieve what so many others just flew in,” the 50-year-old actress tells The Wire. “It was very uncomfortable to be in the cinema while people were laughing at my father.”

Bruce, who died of an allergic reaction to painkillers at the age of 32, made his breakthrough in Hollywood in the 1970s after trying to get to America for years. In Tarantino’s film, the action hero and martial artist is played by Mike Moh, who, according to Shannon, was “directed to create a caricature.”

The actress especially has difficulty with a scene in which ‘Bruce’ stuntman Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt, challenges a fight. Cliff wins it easily. According to Shannon, Bruce, who gave various star training, avoided fighting with people who were not trained in martial arts.

“But here he is with all his arrogance that challenges Brad Pitt. That’s not how he was.”

The actress does understand why her father is in the film. “It’s about a period of obvious racism and exclusion. I understand why they wanted to portray Brad Pitt’s character as a kind of super tough guy who could beat Bruce Lee. But they didn’t have to treat him the way White Hollywood treated him while he was still alive. ”

Tarantino, who has not yet responded to Shannon’s criticism, has been a big fan of the Chinese star for years. For example, in Kill Bill, Uma Thurman wears a replica of a yellow jumpsuit that Bruce once wore.
