Tarantino Responds to Criticism Bruce Lee Depiction in OUATIH

Quentin Tarantino to make 10th and last film ‘epilogue-y’ Quentin Tarantino says if he comes up with a 'terrifi..ory', he will make it his last film before retirement

While the movie is only set to open in Ireland and the United Kingdom this week, there's been a lot of discussion in the USA concerning the portrayal of Bruce Lee in 'Once Upon A Time. In one scene, Brad Pitt's stuntman character, Cliff Booth, squares off with Lee, hurling him into the side of a vehicle with force and ease.

Tarantino continued, explaining that while Brad Pitt would never be able to beat up Bruce Lee, his character, the stuntman with a shady past that may or may not involve the murder of his own wife, could depending on the situation.

Who would have thought that in a film which ostensibly involved the Manson murders, one of the biggest talking points weeks later would center on Bruce Lee?

"Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy", Tarantino said at a recent press event in Moscow (via NerdCoreMovement).

More Kill Bill: "Me and Uma have talked about [a third Kill Bill] recently, ' he said on the podcast". And I kind of openly lament that to him, but he understands the math of when he feels like directors start falling off their game.

"If people are saying, 'Well he never said he could beat up Mohammad Ali, ' well yeah, he did", said Tarantino.

The biography Tarantino references is titled "Bruce Lee: The Man Only I Knew", which Lee's widow, Linda Lee, published in 1978. As it was previously reported, Shannon Lee said to reporters from The Times that Quentin turned her father into an "egotistical punching bag".

Furthermore, the director addressed the fact that Bruce was made out to appear like a weakling in comparison to Brad Pitt's character, Cliff. "He's a fictional character, it's the same as asking if Bruce Lee would win in a fight with Dracula". "If Cliff were fighting Bruce Lee in a martial arts tournament in Madison Square Garden, Bruce Lee would kill him".

Mike Moh as Bruce Lee in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood".

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is slated to release in India on August 15, 2019, i.e. Independence Day 2019. Quentin said the comparisons were silly because Cliff was a fictional character.

Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee, and his protege and training partner Dan Inosanto aired their grievances with the scene to Variety in July. Cliff is not part of the sport that is like combat, he is a warrior.

For reasons entirely unknown at this time, the social justice warriors have had the daggers out for Quentin Tarantino lately. He has killed many men in World War II in hand to hand combat.

As for Moh's performance, the late star's daughter praised the 35-year-old actor's accurate voice and mannerisms but noted, "I think he was directed to be a caricature" - and pointed out that Moh's hairstyle and sunglasses were based on the look Bruce donned during his Enter the Dragon era in the early '70s, before his death in 1973 at age 32. "He is a combat person". However, if they were engaged in hand-to-hand combat in the jungles of the Philippines, then Booth would come out on top.
