Storyline

A short action film interwoven into a documentary tells the story of the legendary unsung heroes of Hong Kong film, the stuntmen and women. This film features the world's most illustrious stuntmen, and many current working stuntmen, profiled through interviews and clips that showcase their work. It explores their death-defying feats and foolhardy working methods and traces their origin back to the original Hong Kong stuntmen known as "red trousers" - a term used to describe acrobats in Peking Opera. By incorporating the martial arts, fantasy, adventure short action film, "Lost Time," the viewer is given an actual account of how stunts are created and executed on film. Written by Kelly

Trivia

The scenes of Robin Shou being "interviewed" were shot by Shou, by himself. Shou set up the camera outdoors and filmed himself as though he were responding to a prompter's questions, choosing to do so without a partner because he knew exactly what he wanted to say. According to him, Hong Kong citizens passing by on the street stared perplexedly at the man speaking English to thin air. See more »

Behind the scenes look at Hong Kong stunt men
18 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very inspirational !! I was in awe watching the stunt men perform and the dedication it takes in training to correctly execute the stunts !! Robin Shou has done a great service to the Hong Kong stunt men by allowing us regular people a peak at what really goes on behind the camera. Of course now I have a brand new passion/interest and would love to see these stunts first hand ! The historical account of the Red Trousers beginning and clips of young men and women training in the schools was impressive. I was overwhelmed by the students hard work and the hopes they expressed at succeeding in the industry. Lost Time was smooth, edgy and sexy..would like to see that expanded into a full length film.
