  While the movie is only set to open in Ireland and the UK this week, there's been a lot of discussion in the US concerning the portrayal of Bruce Lee in 'Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood'.

  Basically, the scene with Bruce Lee - played by Mike Moh - sees him and Brad Pitt fighting one another after a bit of smack-talk.

  Lee, in the movie, claims he could defeat Muhammad Ali and, by all accounts, comes across as a pretty cocky individual.

  What's more, Brad Pitt's character and Bruce Lee battle it out in a best-of-three fight, with the fight ending before either party comes out on top.

  "He's a fictional character, it's the same as asking if Bruce Lee would win in a fight with Dracula.
