Comic strip artists from the 40’s draw their characters while blindfolded
"What bothers me the most is the decline of action stuntmen in Hong Kong. Due to the common accessibility of CGI in recent years no one does real action or real stunts like we used to film back in the Eighties. It’s kind of unwise, in my opinion, as you can never outgun Hollywood in terms of CGI technology but real action and stunts were always our forte, our winning streak.

The new kids in the field play a different game now, they all rely on CG very heavily, and you’ve gotta admit that CGI is way different from an authentic action stunt. In Hong Kong film’s heyday, we made a brand name for our authentic, cutting edge action sequences — we were selling the sense of realism and the feeling of genuine danger, not computer graphics."
