The climatic use of nunchaku in the dream sequence has been reduced to de-emphasize the display of weaponry in most UK versions; the initial lightning flash & zoom onto the highlighted weapon is gone, as are all shots of Lee twirling the weapon. This version was used as the basis for the European DVD release, since Universal did not want to create different DVD masters.
Despite the BBFC's blanket ban on ninja weaponry being lifted in 1999 (and the cuts therefore being automatically waived), Universal still re-submitted the cut version to them in 1999 and 2000. The 2016 Blu-ray is uncut, despite the uncut version not having been submitted to the BBFC - however, the Irish classification board (IFCO) did see it in 2015 and lowered their original 18 certificate to a 15.

The greatest legend ever in martial arts history
This movie was amazing. Before I saw this movie, I had an idea of who Bruce Lee was. I knew he was one of the greatest martial arts masters of all time and I knew he was in a couple of movies. But, I had know idea about the kind of man he was and the struggles he had to go through. He is, in my eyes, an amazing human being with an unimaginable amount of courage and a whole lot of heart. This movie showed me that much. The score is also one of the best I have heard in my life. All in all, this movie is an inspiring take on a legend's life. Great story, great music, great human being.... What more can I say? Amazing!
A solid 8/10
