'Big Brother' Donnie Yen Action Compilation

By InCinemas  /  07 Aug 2018 (Tuesday)
Donnie Yen’s martial arts skills is one of the best in Hong Kong film history. From WuShu to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to Wing Chun, the versatility he displays in his action choreography can only be achieved through years of training. Way before he became an action star, he trained first under his mother who is a tai chi grandmaster. When he was a teenager, he was sent to train with Beijing WuShu team where he was discovered by legendary action choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping.
Donnie’s fight scenes combine the athletic agility of Jet Li and the speed of Bruce Lee with an explosive force that is thrilling to watch. And it doesn’t hurt that he looks 20 years younger than his age. (He’s 55 years old this year).
The versatile action star’s latest film ‘Big Brother’ provides further proof that he can showcase his awesome martial arts skills, and at the same time, play a character who is an unconventional teacher that instills critical thinking to his students. Here’s the trailer if you have not seen it:
