PostSubject: Sammo-Jackie-Biao   Tue Mar 31, 2009 2:23 pm

I know,you are ready to throw me out.But i won't ask you whom you like most.As we all love this trio,my question is a bit different.
I want to ask why love Biao,Jackie and Sammo(seperately)?I mean for what.

My own asnwers are simple

Sammo:No one can kick and do screenfighting better than him with his size.I'm sure if he wasn't fat,he could do everything better than anyone in HK!And he's one of my top 5 directors(the others are Lau Kar Leung,Chang Cheh,Jackie Chan and Danny Lee)

Jackie:A great director-choreographer.I think he is the first man who did proper action sequences with lots of fighters.In earlier films the extras always standed aside and waited so the main hero will beat them up.

Biao:If you need skilled acrobat then little brother Yuen is your choice.He has amazing physical abilities!And my favourite in this trio.

I like your reasoning and it is pretty spot on for me too. Sammo will always be number one for me when it comes to innovative action, directing and acting. He is a very underrated actor who doesn't get the credit for his dramatic and comedic range.

Sure.He's not underrated like an action star,but you said the truth.He can act!!!So Painted Faces proved Sammo and Lam CHing Ying can bring good acting and charisma back then.

I still haven't managed to see "Painted Faces", but it is very high on my wanted list. His performance in "Eight Taels Of Gold" is fantastic though. He is also good in comedy dramas "To Err Is Humane" and "Daddy, Pappa and Father"

For me, Biao is the king. Not really a director and not that influential as a choreographer but dare I say he was martial arts actor. An excellent acting talent and performer, Biao was someone I felt I could easily relate to.

That said I don't want to take away anything from Jackie or Samo as they're also fantastic at what they do and have done.

I'd settle for a VCD if I could find one just to see this much talked about film, but it is not available from any of the sites I usually buy from. Do you know of one that ships to the UK Ekisha? There was a planned remaster of this by Celestial, but they dropped it at the last minute. fool

I know I'm coming into this conversation too late, but...

I think Sammo is the most versatile of the three. He can act. Several of his moments in Resurrection of the Dragon were actually quite sad.

And just watch him go in Kill Zone!! At his age, too! I was cheering him on as he was flying all over the place in the final fight scene with Donnie Yen. Unfortunately I wasn't cheering because of the movie plot; I just loved watching Sammo still go at it after all these years.

Jackie Chan wins my award for "the greatest sense of creative fun with whatever is laying around" and the "ouchiest" stunts. I've never really thought of him as an actor per se, but he and his stunt team are OFF THE HOOK crazy! I could watch Police Story a million times and still wince and say, "ohhhhh that musta hurt!"

Finally, I'm sorry but I'm not a Biao fan. Yes, I respect his stunts. I respect what he has done in film. I adore the Yuens but I just don't feel Biao at all. Give me a Shun Yi fight scene any day.

I think you are not right.I don't want you to say Biao is good.What i mean Yuen Biao is not from Yuen's.There are 2 groups

1.Sifu Yu Jim Yuen's pupils:Jackie Chan,Sammo Hung,Yuen Biao,Yuen Wah,Yuen Miu,Yuen Tak,Corey Yuen
and
2.Simon Yuen's sons:Yuen Woo Ping,Yuen Cheung Yan,Yuen Shun Yi,Brandy Yuen and Yuen Yat Chor.

I guess you misunderstood these 2 groups.

Yuen Biao is not that good in acting(except for On The Run) but as stuntman and action director i prefer him.He has amazing skills,that's why he doubled for Jackie,Sammo,Leung Kar Yan,Cynthia Rotrock,Lau Kar Wing and almost everyone in HK film industry.As acrobat he's the best!

I had no idea there were two groups! I just kept noticing there were a lot of Yuens making a lot of great movies and assumed they were all one family. Lol!

I just kinda watch movies in a haphazard, uneducated way. When somebody onscreen interests me, I look up the name so I can find more good movies to watch. That's how I found out who Lam Ching Ying is! As you can see, I know very little. Feel free to educate me!

Always been a fan of Jackie Sammo , My Favorite martial arts movies are the ones which Jackie/Sammo collaborated Project A/Dragons Forever/Meals on Wheels/My Lucky Stars Winners and Sinners . My favorite Sammo movie has to be Millionaire Express and Tuba loved them as a kid and still do . But a bigger fan of Jackie more than Sammo

I seriously wish there Egos wouldn't have clashed and they would have done more cinema magic together . The Half Dozen films done together by Jackie/Sammo are just not enough
