    Prince of the Sun (1990)

    I will always have a soft spot for this film, i got to spend a lot of time on the set during the shoot with Jeff and Cyndy....and it was disorganized to say the least...with Cynthia's time on the movie not being used wisely, we ended up doing an insane final day that began the night before with the fight at the playground and ended in the afternoon with the fight with jeff and cyndy in the park Conan was originally supposed to be the comic relief who thought he could fight and couldn't for the entire film, but when they realized how much time had been wasted, suddenly they decided more action was needed and the Lam Ching-ying possesses him business came about... Welson Chin who directed the Inspector Wears Skirt series wasn't the best director and I know Yuen Tak got lockd out during editing which could explain why the actions not that sharp, not sure why the film is so bad grain wise and everything like its some lost 70's indi.....
  2. I was interviewed amongst some solid Hong Kong talent for this upcoming documentary covering the evolution and intl appeal of the martial arts movie from old school to new school and beyond, it makes its debut at Melbourne International Film Festival had to rock a 36 Styles shirt of course for the interview... was funny as we touched on The Matrix and i was shooting Loveland a sci-fi thriller in Hong Kong with Hugo Weaving at the time....

  6. Hmmm let me guess "From the disgraced former pimp of Harvey Winestain comes the Beast from the East (and no we're talking about the Producer" Bolo Yeung story.... Very happy that i didn't agree to be involved with this in any way, @DragonClaws i did tell you to be careful ref the way Pavel behaves, and this kind of says it all

  8. One of the highlights of DRAGONS FOREVER, is seeing the legendary Benny Urquidez aka Benny the Jet letting loose against Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung & Yuen Biao for the second time.... So its with great pleasure to confirm that we secured an exclusive interview for the upcoming 88 Films release of Dragons Forever, with Sensei Urquidez answering my questions and talking about his martial arts career in both the ring and on the screen. It was a team effort and I want to say many thanks for all involved in making this happen, Thanks to Lee A Charles for his help in securing the interview, much appreciated good sir, Master Phillip Escott for helping me arrange camera, thanks to Sarah for shooting it for us, and a big thanks to Sara Urquidez for letting us take up some of Benny's time
  9. Thanks for the kind words and a lot of good memories Vincent Sze did most of his stuff, just being doubled for a few key moves...Liang is not and never hasd been a member of Jackie CHan Stunt Team although has the skills that could put him there, he's since gone on to have quite a career on such projects as The Force Awakens and more...he was the "Traitor' first order storm trooper that a certain 'would be' bullshitting extra claimed to be, and taught Daisy Ridley for the movie Shing Fui-on was my village chief, and i had known him on and off since i first arrived in Hong Kong and he came in as a favour i think more to Richard than to me, although he did tell the press that i had been begging him to be in a movie with him since i was a little kid growing up in HK! So i think he was having fun with it, he came in, along with another old friend James Ha (Untold Story) for a day or two wasn't the biggest budget but was fun to shoot, always good to work with Vincent, Carl Ng & Richard Ng, Cary Tagawa, Mark Strange, Nathan Lewis, Anthony , Man Ching and co...... and hey i always cackle when i get to throw Carl from a van!

    Do you think Jackie's Bowling-Story is true?!

    The bowling story is something Jackie has spoken of for more than 30 years, i remember him telling me about it way back on set during the shooting of Police Story 3 and i think it's also in an earlier Inside Kung Fu article by Dave Cater when Police Story first came out As much as i do like Jeff Yang's Jackie Chan autobiography, i think even Jeff would admit that there's some stuff that isn't featured that should have been, and some stuff isn't clear as they had such an insane deadline to get it done Sammo's story of encountering Bruce Lee at Golden Harvest and testing his speed, and jackie and the bowling alley story i think are true....
  14. i had never realized this till i saw the post, damn wish i'd realized as would have chatted to him about this when we did INVINCIBLE his ill fated French Foreign legion movie in the early 90's
