Quentin Tarantino’s controversial film “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” may not be hitting Chinese cinemas anytime soon after local film regulators placed its release on indefinite hold.
Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee reportedly made an appeal to China’s National Film Administration to rework the portrayal of her father before the release, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” which was originally set to hit local theaters on October 25, was heavily criticized by Lee’s friends and family who found the portrayal to be disrespectful.
Bruce Lee is a legendary action hero and a beloved icon to many people, however, there are some who may disagree.
This discussion was created by a recent portrayal of Lee in a Tarantino film that painted him as a cocky personality that couldn’t even stand his own against a middle-aged stunt man.
NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has aired his thoughts on the controversial portrayal of martial arts legend Bruce Lee in Quentin Tarantino’s film “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.”

While Quentin Tarantino’s new film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” has been topping box office charts since its premiere in July, it has also brought in scathing reviews and backlash from critics.
