Chinese Hercules (Bolo Yeung Appreciation Thread)

Recommended Posts

 

Actor Rich Ting's, character in the new Warrior series. Based on the ideas/writings of Bruce Lee. Has been named none other than Bolo, a clear nod to a certain actor/character in Enter The Dragon.

 

Mr Ting, second from the left, in a publcity still for the Warrior show.

Nice hommage there. You'd expect the character with such a name to be bulkier though... 

 

Guess it was just a nod in name only, and maybe the fact he's also a villain?. Dont' know too many details about the show to be honest.

I'm sorry, but why post noob shit like this on a forum that has been running for decades and for many member's, living or dead, on expert level? What's the point? I know you wanna plug your Bolo doc but does that mean linking to every single inconsequential blurb you find  about him online? If you wanna hype the doc, why not post some inside stuff from the production and if you just wanna honor his name by posting random stuff, I'm sure you can find better than this kindergarten level garbage.

Firstly, thanks for the ever positive feedback. Not everyone who read's or visits or joins this forum, is an instant book of Kung Fu movie knowledge. There's so much I don't know, and I've been reading about these movies online for well over a decade.

I created this thread, long before I was even apart of that documentary. My post had nothing to do with promoting our documentary. My original thread was created in 2016, but it was lost when the forums went down.

It was just me sharing two links I found online, little did I know it would incite so much anger in you.

If someone, inexplicably doesn't know who Sammo Hung, Lau Kar Leung, Bolo, Gordon or fucking Van Damme is, I'm not sure they belong here.... or anywhere martial arts cinema is dicussed. Though maybe I'm the one who doesn't belong her anymore.

It's a public forum, and nobdy posts should have to please everyone on it. If they were to all pass your quality test first, then that would be a dictatorship. Not everything I post on here is for me, I post stuff for others too. Including those who might not be so knowledgable. There was a time when I didnt know any of the other names in the article, apart from Van Damme. People have sent me a lot of positive PM's since I joined, in regards to what I've posted.

Thanks for posting this @saltysam, really glad this has worked out at last.

 

First time either Bolo or Van Damme have done a show/convention in the U.K too.
