Bey Logan’s Run as Harvey Weinstein’s Point Man in Asia

Bey Logan’s Run as Harvey Weinstein’s Point Man in Asia
Bey Logan has been a familiar, larger-than-life figure on the Asian film scene for more than two decades. A burly martial arts expert who speaks good Cantonese, Logan has long courted attention and attracted gossip.

Now, the spotlight has turned into a harsh one as he fends off allegations of sexual misconduct, both on his own part and in connection with disgraced U.S. mogul Harvey Weinstein, with whom Logan had a close working relationship. Hong Kong online magazine HK01 this week published a series of reports in which seven Asia-based actresses accused Logan of unwanted sexual advances and misbehavior. Another actress, JuJu Chan, has told Variety that Bey “forcefully kissed” her without her consent.

Logan, who goes by the nickname “The Beast,” denies any criminal misconduct and any knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged assaults. But he has issued a public statement in which he admits that his past conduct towards women has been flawed.

Logan, 56, was

‘Crouching Tiger’ Actress Accuses Harvey Weinstein Asia Associate of Sexual Misconduct

‘Crouching Tiger’ Actress Accuses Harvey Weinstein Asia Associate of Sexual Misconduct
Actress JuJu Chan has accused Harvey Weinstein’s Asia associate Bey Logan of making an unwanted sexual advance and later pressuring her romantically during production of The Weinstein Co.’s 2016 film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.”

Chan told Variety that Logan, a friend of Weinstein’s and a consulting producer with TWC, “forcefully kissed” her one evening after a party and later complained during shooting of “Sword of Destiny” that she refused to be his girlfriend.

Logan vehemently denies the allegations by Chan, who is the latest woman to accuse him of sexual misconduct. Earlier this week, the Hong Kong online news site HK01 published allegations by seven actresses that Logan had sexually harassed them. Only one of the accusers, actress Sable Yu, has been willing to give her name to HK01.

In response to HK01’s report, Logan denied any criminal misconduct but apologized for having had a “too carefree attitude towards physical encounters

Film Review: ‘Savage Dog’

Film Review: ‘Savage Dog’
Martin Tillman, the burly bruiser played by British action star Scott Adkins in “Savage Dog,” most assuredly is a man on a mission. But it’s not always clear precisely what that mission is in writer-director Jesse V. Johnson’s ultra-violent revenge melodrama set in 1959 Indochina. At times, it seems that Tillman’s overriding objective is to destroy the undesirables who killed his buddy, shot his girlfriend and generally made life unpleasant for him during and after his stint in a prison operated by an unrepentant ex-Nazi. But at other times — many more times, actually — his primary goal appears to be surpassing the massive body count of “Universal Solider: Day of Reckoning,” Adkins’ 2012 starring-role breakthrough. Spoiler: He is extremely successful in both pursuits.

When we first meet Tillman, he is rising from the rain-soaked earth, not unlike Tim Robbins in “The Shawshank Redemption,” after being dumped into a shallow grave by bad guys who made the fatal

Movie Review – Savage Dog (2017)

Savage Dog, 2017.

Written and directed Jesse V. Johnson.

Starring Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror, Cung Le, Juju Chan, Vladimir Kulich, and Keith David.

Synopsis:

A story set in Indochina in 1959, a land beyond rule and a time without mercy and the birth of a legend.

Scott Adkins is busy these days. He seems to have had about 100 films out this year already, and in the UK alone fans have been treated to the double whammy release of Savage Dog and Boyka: Undisputed on the same day. Adkins is stepping up as the undisputed king of straight to video action. That crossover to the big screen as a leading man still alludes him, but he’s still found his own market and kept his standards mostly high.

Savage Dog marks the first of Adkins triple bill with director Jesse Johnson (well established already as a stuntman turned director, and nephew of legendary stuntman,

Fantasia Review: Vengeance is Slowly Enacted in ‘Savage Dog’

When a film opens with Scott Adkins rising from the mud with a scream in Indochina circa 1959, you begin cultivating expectations. You forgive the ham-fisted voiceover narration and the quick slow motion cuts disorienting place and time. You forgive the lack of context as to why this man (and a woman too) was trapped under mud in the first place because you’re re-situating yourself in your seat to brace for the impact of the actor’s fists against the flesh of whomever put him there. Maybe the woman is a love interest. Maybe she won’t survive. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I hoped she wouldn’t so the bloodlust could increase further towards revenge. Sadly, vengeance — why I sat down at all — is still an hour away.

Ex-stuntman Jesse V. Johnson’s Savage Dog rewinds six months to show us how Martin (Adkins) got trapped there after all,

Fantasia 2017: ‘Savage Dog’ Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Marko Zaror, Juju Chan, Cung Le, Keith David, Vladimir Kulich, Matthew Marsden, Charles Fathy | Written and Directed by Jesse V. Johnson

Ok, let’s all just say it together. Scott Adkins is the saviour of Dtv action movies. Charismatic, skilled and just a downright badass (and likeable) actor, whatever Adkins seemingly touches turns to gold – the Universal Soldier franchise was improved by his addition, as was the Undisputed series: in fact he made that particular fighting franchise Better with each and every sequel. Even the football-themed series Green Street was made watchable by the appearance of Adkins in the third installment, and that coming from someone who, typically, refuses to watch movies based on idiotic football hooligans.

Hold on… Turns out I may have a man-crush on Scott Adkins! And that’s not a bad thing.

Adkins has single-handedly kept the direct to market action genre alive,

This Kickass Action-Packed Trailer For Savage Dog Looks Like It Came From The 90s

You've gotta watch this trailer for the upcoming action thriller Savage Dog, which features Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange, The Expendables II) kicking ass as he embarks on a mission for revenge.

The movie looks like it came straight out of the early 1990s, which is why I'm kind of looking forward to watching it. I've seen a few trailers for upcoming action films recently that reminded me of movies from the 90s. Are 90s-style action movies making a comeback!? Yeah, it looks like a very low-budget flick, but sometimes it's just fun to sit back, relax, and watch a fun movie like this. Here's the synopsis:

Indochina, 1959. A Wild West town controlled by the criminal class: Vietnamese warlords and European war criminals. The worst prison in the land, it is here that a European, former-champion boxer Martin Tilman (Scott Adkins) has made a name for himself fighting tournaments. When Tilman is due for release,

Crazy First Trailer for Action Movie 'Savage Dog' Starring Scott Adkins

"There's a tale told somewhere south of Burma. The tale tells of a man..." XLrator Media has debuted an official trailer for an action movie titled Savage Dog, which looks like it's straight out of the 90s as an action movie mixing guns and martial arts and a ridiculous revenge plot and so much more. Scott Adkins stars as a former champion boxer stuck in a prison in Indochina in the late 1950s. When he is released, the people running the jail don't want him to leave and so he must figure out a way to get home. The full cast includes Marko Zaror, Juju Chan, Cung Le, Vladimir Kulich, Charles Fathy, Matthew Marsden, Sheena Chou, and the incomparable Keith David. I really don't know how to describe this, it has some cool action but it seriously looks like this was made 30 years ago and kept in a vault until now.

Exclusive interview with actor Vladimir Kulich

david j. moore chats with actor Vladimir Kulich about The 13th Warrior, Ironclad, The Equalizer and his new projects Grave Walkers and Savage Dog

Perhaps best known for playing Buliwyf in The 13th Warrior, the big budget epic sword and sorcery-type film from director John McTiernan and writer Michael Crichton from 1999, actor Vladimir Kulich towers above his co-stars in most of the projects he’s been in. Imbued with a distinct look and voice, Kulich also co-starred in films such as Decoy with Peter Weller, Red Scorpion 2 with Matt McColm, Crackerjack with Thomas Ian Griffith, and Firestorm with Howie Long. Over the years he’s specialized in playing Nordic heroes or stalwart warriors in projects like Ironclad and the TV series Vikings, but he’s also versatile, appearing in key roles in Smokin’ Aces and The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. His latest projects are the independent horror film Grave Walkers

Cung Le Joins Jesse Johnson's Savage Dog

As if director Jesse Johnson's latest, Savage Dog, didn't have enough action star power, it appears he's left room for another in the line-up with the addition of retired Ufc fighter Cung Le. Zaror posted the pic you see beneath less than a day ago, signaling Le's arrival which now totals it to four with pound-for-pound star Scott Adkins and actress and martial artist JuJu Chan also starring. Plot details are certainly nil while all we have is what Bleiberg Entertainment's Cannes poster hints at: A story set in Indochina in 1959, a land beyond rule and a time without mercy, and the birth of a legend.... ...And that's it. That's all we get so far while everything else is a big mystery, except we...
