Enter the Dragon

Factual error: During the flashback explaining what happened to Su Lin she has an ugly bruise on her face less than a minute after being hit. Bruises usually take at least a few hours to develop like that.

Factual error: When Han is fighting Williams, Williams throws a side kick to Han. Then he lifts up his hand to block - supposedly a metal hand - but his hand does not move one bit. It is not possible, due to that kind of force, for a hand to not move. Even if a hand is metal, the elbow will pivot. As well as the fact that after the kick, you see Williams' face is in pain. This is not possible as he is wearing soled shoes and kicking side on.

Other mistake: In the briefing scene just after the main credits, Braithwaite is showing Lee a film of Han and his allies. What we are seeing is footage spliced into the film, as the shadows of the 16 millimetre projector's reels on Bruce Lee's face and the wall shows empty reels with no film in them at all.

Question: Did Bruce Lee manage to film all his scenes before he died?

Answer: Yes, he filmed all of his scenes before he died. He died on July 20, 1973 - only six days before the film debuted in Hong Kong, and only a month before the film's US debut.
