Chow Yun Fat

Postby Abbot Flash » Wed Sep 14, 2005 8:30 am

Is this man one of the best action stars that came out of Hong Kong in the past decade? What are your thoughts?

See if you can guess which films these pic originate.

I regard him as one of HK's finest "actors". He can do it all, and the pictures alone show his range.

I'm curious.....has he ever played a villain? If so, I guess he's done it all for sure.

Ah ironfistedmonk2003 you right i think about Full Contact. Its CYF's hair In the movie its mroe of a crew cut as opposed to the stills. Odd

Chow Yun-Fat is my favorite actor hands down. I think he has more range then almost any other acotr out there, doing dramas, comedies, action, and horror films, and in2 differnt languages!

The fact that he has even had a moderate (still needs to be more) amount of success in Hollywood without being a martial arts star, is a testament to how versatile he is.

Sure he has done more then his bad share of movies, but even in the bad ones he usually still has one or 2 great moments.
