Some of the Grand Ninja Pimps of Knug Fu cinema (I think so anyway.)
劉家良 Mandarin: Liu Jia-Liang Cantonese: Lau Kar-Leung
This dude is the Real Ultimate Power of HK cinema. ALL of my favorite HK flicks were directed by this dude. Some of those movies include.
[Shaolin Vs. The Llama], [Dirty Ho], [Drunken Master 2], [36th Chamber of Shaolin], [8 Diagram Pole Fighter] (my all time favorite)
[quote]It’s perhaps long overdue that Liu Chia-Liang is finally getting wider recognition through his contribution to Hong Kong cinema. King Hu had an enviable reputation even way back in the late 60s, while Chang Cheh’s recent death has reminded many of the vast canon of work he left behind. 'The Pops’ - as he has affectionately been called - has long been admired, but never quite had the same gravitas in his home territory as his contemporaries.
劉家輝 Gordon Liu
This is the adopted brother of the man above, so he had to be pimp. Gordon is stared in a bunch of all goodies, and is more recently of fame from the likes of the movie Kill Bill and 2. Anyone that likes HK kung fu fills, even if just a little bit probably knows who this guy is.
Jackie Chan 成龍
Even though my hypeness about Jackie has worn off a bit, there’s no doubt in my mind about the amount of ass kickidness that resides in his soul. He is the man that got me excited about kung fu flips. He’s the reason I busted my head numerous times flipping off of things. He’s… a pretty cool guy.

Last but not least…
Jet Li 李連杰
Jet Li has also hooked up coutless bumps and bruises from micmmicktry. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized he used wires for a lot of stunts. Jet Li has some SUPER FLY movies as well. Everyone knows about [Hero] and [Fearless], but have you seen…
[Shaolin Temple 2: Kids from Shaolin], [Once Upon a Time in China], [Fist of Legend] (a remake of Fist of Fury has o be good)
Note: Simplified sucks because they turned a fly ass character like 龍 into 龙
Note 2: I now have to dust off the Kung Fu movie collection and watch something today.
