its not really fair to compare them, as they both followed different paths...

From the ages of 11-17 when he retired, jet li was the All-around national wushu champion of china... after which he began his movie career

Bruce Lee was an actor from the age of 6 on, with brief periods of time devoted to study (wing chun/ chinese boxing/ degree in philosophy)

However Bruce Lee did live in period when his talents would never be recognized or celebrated, leaving him with second rate parts (here in america) and only a taste of the success that he would realize later in Hong Kong...

Bruce Lee - American Kung Fu golden child
Jet Li - Chinese Kung Fu (Wushu) golden child

it would be a good fight...
