Sadly Overlooked: The Career of Hong Kong actor Elvis Tsui Kam Kong

Throughout the history of Hong Kong Cinema there have always been those performers that have deservedly become stars. At the same time there are those that it is unfathomable how they did not become bigger stars, with as much talent and skills as their more famous counterparts. For every Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen or Chow Yun Fat there is a Chin Siu Ho, Fan Siu Wong or Yu Rong-Guang. One of my favourite of these performers, and someone who should have become a bigger star is Elvis Tsui Kam Kom. Instantly recognisable to fans of Hong Kong cinema, Tsui has appeared in over 130 films and television series throughout his varied career. Perhaps sometimes guilty of being over the top, he has still managed to...

100 Great Kung Fu Movies – Part 2 (79-60)

When it comes to making features like this one, i love the idea of coming up with my own personal “100 Great Kung Fu Movies” of all time. It is tough choosing just 100 because you know there are many more great Kung Fu movies that are not on the list.

I have decided that to make the list, a movie must have a few hand to hand moments during fight scenes in the movies chosen. If for example its mainly sword play with one fight scene hand to hand it won’t make the list. Its old school “style” Kung Fu movies, not modern day settings.

I understand everyone will have their own personal favorites and some may not agree with my list and that’s fine because it’s nice to have different opinions on this genre which keeps it fresh and alive when having good debates.

Anyway, thank you

Jackie Chan’s Police Story : Lockdown to Hit Theaters This Week

What’s the first image that pops in your mind when you hear the name “Jackie Chan”?

For most of us, Chan is an iconic martial artist who always finds a way to make his films action-packed, replete with massive explosions and death-defying stunts, without totally sacrificing humor. However, in his film “Police Story: Lockdown,” Jackie loses the goofy grins and replaces it with intense gazes and an overall pensive look.

The Criminal Avenger, the Hardened Detective, and the Damsel in Distress

The Story Behind the “Lockdown”

Well, you can’t blame Jackie Chan, who portrays Detective Zhong Wen in “Police Story 2013,” for the serious face.

Detective Zhong has been searching for his estranged daughter, Miao, only to find her in a relationship with the seedy nightclub owner, Wu Jiang. Their difference in opinion resulted to an argument, but before he can try and reach out to his daughter, he was knocked unconscious.

Cold Steel (2011) Movie Review

Noted editor and director David Wu blasted back into Chinese cinemas in 2011 with “Cold Steel”, a wartime sniper thriller that after enjoying success at international festivals finally lands on DVD. Wu has certainly had an interesting career, having worked with John Woo as editor on several of his classics including “A Better Tomorrow”, “Bullet in the Head” and “Hard Boiled”, as well as directing “The Bride with White Hair 2”, before enjoying success in the Us as a director of genre and television fare. For his return to Asia, Wu assembled an interesting cast, headlined by Peter Ho (“Sophie’s Revenge”) and veteran Tony Leung Ka Fai (“Election”), with support from actress Song Jia (“Once Upon a Time in Tibet”), martial artist Yu Rong Guang (“Iron Monkey”), television star Wilson Guo (“Palace”) and John Woo’s daughter Angeles Woo (“Reign of Assassins”). Based on a popular online novel, the film sees Ho as Mu Liangfeng,

My Kingdom (2011) Movie Review

Chinese period piece “My Kingdom” is a film which has whipped up a fair bit of interest as an East-West coproduction that attempts to inject a little action, romance and glamour into the world of Beijing Opera, not least since it stars top Asian pop duo Wu Chun and Han Geng in the lead roles. The two certainly took the film seriously, undergoing six months of training with the one and only Sammo Hung in order to convincingly play ‘wushengs’, actors who combine martial arts and opera in performance. Directed by Gao Xiao Song (“Copy Cat”), the film also has a fine supporting cast, including Barbie Hsu (“Reign of Assassins”) as the boys’ chief love interest, magician Liu Qian (here making his screen debut), Annie Yi (“Four Women Conflict”) and action veterans Yuen Biao (who also recently showed up in “The Legend Is Born – Ip Man”) and Yu Rong Guang

Blu-Ray Review: Crowd-Pleasing Extras Elevate ‘The Karate Kid’

Chicago – If I were 12 years old, I’d probably think “The Karate Kid” was one of the best Blu-Rays of the year. It’s got everything: a crowd-pleasing feature film, several superb extras, and strikingly sharp picture quality, with colors that pop. Yet since I’m twice as old, I’m cursed with the clarity to see through the splendid spectacle and linger on its utter superficiality.

The Karate Kid” is barely a film at all, but merely a celebration of brand names, the first of which is the title itself, which makes no sense in the context of this remake. While John G. Avildsen’s 1984 classic was about a sensitive teenager learning karate in California, this film is about a cocky kid learning kung fu in China. When the kid corrects his mother on the precise name of his favored martial art, she goes, “Karate, kung fu, whatever!” This

Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts

DVD Review: Mulan Legendary Warrior

Mulan Legendary Warrior

Stars: Zhao Wei, Jaycee Chan, Rongguang Yu | Written by Ting Zhang | Directed by Jingle Ma

Cast your mind back to the heady days of 1998 and you may remember Disney’s animated interpretation of a sixth century Chinese poem, Mulan. Just over a decade later, the poem has been reinterpreted once more, this time as a full-on, live action epic. Jingle Ma directs Zhao Wei (who has previously starred in Shaolin Soccer and Red Cliff and also boasts a pop career) as the titular heroine.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Mulan disguises herself as a man and enlists in the Chinese army to save her ailing father from going to war once more with the invading Rouran tribes. Being rather good in a scrap, Mulan quickly rises through the ranks and becomes a hero, though she must constantly hide her true identity, known only to childhood friend Tiger (Jaycee Chan,

Stars: Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson, Rongguang Yu, Zhenwei Wang | Written by Christopher Murphey & Robert Mark Kamen | Directed by Harald Zwart

12-year-old Dre Parker could have been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying – and the feeling is mutual – but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre’s feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts “the karate kid” on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre

Harald Zwart Confirms RollerCoaster Tycoon Plans and Talks The Karate Kid Sequel

With the success of this past weekend's box office winner The Karate Kid, that film's director has confirmed his involvement in a new big-screen project. MTV Movies Blog confirmed that director Harald Zwart will be directing the film version of RollerCoaster Tycoon.

We reported on the film last month, with Zwart listed as an executive producer and possible director on the project, but now it seems he will be directing after all.

"I'm very excited to direct it, yes," he told MTV. "Given that all the planets line up right for it - you never know if a movie gets made - but that's certainly something we're all hoping for."

He also said that screenwriters Jay Scherick and David Ronn were still working on the script and he talked about how the film could be in 3D as well.

"It's going to be perceived as a totally live-action movie. That's

'The Karate Kid': Crane Shot, By Kurt Loder

Jackie Chan sets up a star turn for the surprising young Jaden Smith.

Is there a generation of 12-year-old girls out there yearning for a 12-year-old action-hunk to obsess about? If so, their prayers have been answered. In "The Karate Kid," Jaden Smith, in only his third film, emerges as a charismatic star with what would seem, to this non-12-year-old girl, to be a precocious romantic appeal.

The movie is a sort-of remake of the 1984 "Karate Kid," which turned 23-year-old Ralph Macchio into a generational touchstone back in the day. Here, the bones of the original story remain, but they've been freely reassembled. In the first film, Macchio's fish-out-of-water character had been forced to relocate from New Jersey to California — a puny challenge in this global age. Now, Smith's character, Dre Parker, has to relocate all the way to China

Movie Review: The Karate Kid (2010)

Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan in The Karate Kid

Photo: Columbia Pictures I was seven-years-old when the original Karate Kid was released. It was one of those films I loved as a child and still enjoy as an adult. It's also a film that wasn't screaming for a remake. Then again, I am no longer the target demographic. Sitting next to a 13-year-old boy at my screening of Harald Zwart's The Karate Kid I was witness to excitement similar to what I must have had 26 years ago, and after watching the film I wish I could have been as ebullient as that young man was. While it's obvious the story that worked so long ago still works today (underdog sports stories most oftentimes do work), it's the little things that make some rise to the top and that's where this remake misses its mark.
