The Underrated Greatness of Leo Lee

Leo Lee may not have A-list recognition but if you’re a fan of action movies, especially from the 90’s you’ll know his face and most likely think “damn that guy looks cool”.

Lee’s an actor, stuntman and martial arts expert who has participated in over 40 films including Big Trouble in Little China (1986), Kindergarten Cop (1990), The Perfect Weapon (1991), Double Impact (1991), Martial Law II: Undercover (1991), Bounty Tracker (1993), Rising Sun (1993), The Shadow (1994), Deadly Target (1994),  A Low Down Dirty Shame (1994), Mortal Kombat (1995) Escape from LA (1996), City of Industry (1997) Contact (1997), The Replacement Killers (1998), Swordfish (2001) and True Blue (2001) .

That’s him on the right

He always stood out on screen for me because he’s just so damn cool; I would always recognize him in Jeff Wincott movies like Deadly Bet, Martial Law 2 and Open Fire but he was also in one of my favourite Daniel Bernhardt movies called True Vengeance.

He deserves to be a bigger star as he always had great presence and charisma. Even if he has no dialogue in a movie he stands out usually because he’s wearing shades and being awesome.

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.
