Donnie Yen: Style of Action

donnieyen

I found this rather fascinating 15 minute video online of Donnie Yen discussing his style of action movies.

He talks about the good things in Hong Kong films like flexibility and creativity where the director is allowed to make changes while shooting, which apparently you don’t get in Hollywood or Japanese productions.

Yen also talks about how he is specialises in emphasizing power and tempo.

Anyway, shut up Eoin and play the video.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
