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
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 »
The movie was really touching and it takes you to the other side of the action movie business. I always wanted to be an action star but after seeing this movie I need to work harder just like Robin Shou. I diffidently would buy this DVD and recommend other to watch it or own it. Cannot wait until Robin Shou next movie, I also like the movie background and the music, the movie according to the article was film in Hong Kong and China, one of my friend call me and told me the movie has already been shown in Asia on Discovery and everyone like it, I am still waiting for Discovery Channel to show this movie in USA. I hope to see Robin Shou in more action movie and perform more of his Kung-Fu in future Movies for Hollywood.
