  • Mike Moh as Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

The film depicts Lee (played by Mike Moh) swaggering around the set of Green Hornet, denigrating boxer Muhammad Ali and picking a street fight with the evenly matched stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt).

During a recent Moscow press conference for his new film, Tarantino broke his silence to defend his creation from all the controversy, justifying it by stating that, "Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy." .

IGN gave Once Upon a Time in Hollywood a 7.8 out of 10, saying it wasn't Tarantino's best work, but that there was enough for fans of his to enjoy. He was worlds ahead of everyone else.

Meanwhile, his widow Linda Lee added that the film was "just very bad", stating, "I thought the character was like a caricature of himself and made him look stupid, silly and made to be insultingly 'Chinesey.' It strayed so far from the truth of who he was and of any actual encounter he had".

"The way he was talking, I didn't just make a lot of that up", the director continued, "I heard him say things like that to that effect". If people are saying, 'Well he never said he could beat up Mohammad Ali, ' well yeah he did. "She absolutely said it".

The biography Tarantino references is titled "Bruce Lee: The Man Only I Knew", which Lee's widow, Linda Lee, published in 1978. He added, "Bruce Lee would have never said anything derogatory about Muhammad Ali because he worshiped the ground Muhammad Ali walked on".

But he admitted: "It's different playing matches". "My team felt this was the time, that's why I'm giving it a go". Murray began playing doubles at Queen's Club in June, winning that grass court title with Feliciano Lopez .

Critics, including Inosanto, took umbrage with the scene's depiction of a stuntman holding his own against the Enter the Dragon actor, at one point catching Lee's kick and throwing him into a auto.

The famed director went on to explain that Cliif could beat up Bruce Lee because Cliff was, well, a fictional character.

Tarantino punched back, saying: "Could Cliff beat up Bruce Lee?" "He's a fictional character, it's the same as asking if Bruce Lee would win in a fight with Dracula". If I say Cliff can beat Bruce Lee up, he's a fictional character so he could beat Bruce Lee up.

The original criticism of the depiction of Bruce Lee came when Shannon Lee described it as "disheartening", "uncomfortable", and a "mockery" of her father in an interview with The Wrap. He admires combat, and boxing is a closer approximation of combat as a sport.

Tarantino and Thurman both co-created her character The Bride in Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 which were released in 2003 and 2004 respectively. "He is a combat person". Bruce challenges Cliff to a three round fight, easily winning the first round by kicking Cliff to the floor within seconds. "But if Cliff and Bruce were fighting in the jungles of the Philippines in a hand-to-hand combat fight Cliff would kill him".
