Whatever Happened to Jian Bing Man?


Jian Bing Man tells the story of a disgraced actor struggling to find a way back to the top, finding the meaning of true friends on the way. It was directed, written and also starring Da Peng, Mabel Yuan and Liu Yan.

Wasn’t this movie meant to come out last year?

It had Jean-Claude Van Damme as a villain (in a small role towards the end allegedly) and was a hit in China; it got a brief cinema release in the US but it’s never had an official DVD/Blu-ray release that I know of.

I’ve even looked at some Asian DVD sites and can’t find any trace of it.


I’ll admit it doesn’t exactly look particularly good but I am a JCVD completist and I want it; have any of you seen it? Is it worth watching?

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.
