Bruce Lee's Daughter Slams Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Bruce Lee's Daughter Slams Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

While many have praised actor Mike Moh's performance as Bruce Lee, that's not where the issue lies for the late actor's daughter.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is now in theaters, and it's a hit. The iconic martial artist and actor appears in a flashback (or perhaps a fantasy?) involving Brad Pitt's stuntman character, Cliff Booth.

She said in reality her father was often challenged but he never took them seriously. One presumes people wanted to see how they would do against the great Bruce Lee, and her father would always do his best to avoid such altercations.

Shannon Lee has said while speaking to The Wrap, "I understand they want to make the Brad Pitt character this super bad-ass who could beat up Bruce Lee".

"He comes across as an arrogant a-hole who was full of hot air", Shannon said of her father's portrayal in the film, which she saw Sunday. However, in Once Upon a Time.In Hollywood, Bruce Lee is the one starting a fight with a character played by Brad Pitt. But they didn't need to treat him in the way that white Hollywood did when he was alive.

Part of the issue for Shannon Lee is that she's spent a sizable amount of time trying to preserve her father's legacy.

The second thing that's a problem is something that Lee said she experienced as she watched the film over the weekend.

It is filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's ode to a very specific era in Tinseltown, one that came to an end-at least, it seems, in the director's mind-when Charles Manson directed members of his cult to murder Sharon Tate, her unborn child, and three of her friends in August, 1969. "All of that was flushed down the toilet in this portrayal, and made my father into this arrogant punching bag". Tarantino's previous highest-grossing opening was "Inglourious Basterds", which opened to $38 million in 2009.

"Once Upon a Time In Hollywood" earned an 86 percent "fresh" review score on Rotten Tomatoes and a "B" CinemaScore from audiences.
