Are they all standing on boxes or is it just the "short" guy on the right? Either way, it looks like they are dancing... [Big Grin]

I've seen him in tons of movies but looking at James Hong's resume still amazed he is still so active.

Who's your favorite Thunder, Rain or Lightning?

Who is the villain who is semi-balding who has the fu manchu moustache? I see him in a lot of movies, he usually gets beat up?

You probably mean Al Leong, veteran 80's-90's badguy actor!

Is that his name? There was a time when I used to see him in everything. He was referred for years by my friends as "that guy."

He was in Last Action Hero as well? I also used to think it was Hugh Laurie who was the main villain in that.

My favourite of the three storms is no doubt, Thunder! Been a fan of Carter Wong before I saw this movie. Always been a kung fu/Hong Kong movie nut, since I was a little kid.


Here's Carter sparring with Chuck Norris in 1972. Carter was doing Hapkido, with Angela Mao and Sammo Hung. And Chuck was shooting Way of the dragon with Bruce Lee, of course.

Here is Carter practicing with Bruce Lee, and Bob Wall looking in.

Here are my favourites of his...

HAPKIDO 1972
WHEN TAEKWONDO STRIKES 1973
BORN INVINCIBLE 1978

But nothing compares to the awesome craziness of the 18 BRONZEMEN and RETURN OF THE 18 BRONZEMEN!

These are Carter's signature films. And damn they are hilarious and enjoyable.

Carter has to train and fight his way through the underground tunnels of the Shaolin temple, which is filled with death traps and of course, the titular Shaolin bronzemen. (which is sometimes guys in golden robot suits, of various quality,
and sometimes just guys painted gold, I guess they ran out of money for costumes:)

I gotta say this was one of my favorite movies back in the day. one of the memorable scenes in the movie is when Jack Burton and Gracie Law are in Lo Pan's elevator and he's telling her about
the magic potion that he drank that made him see things that other people couldn't see. What a CLASSIC

Excellent scene amigo.
Great to hear love for this movie. Anyone else got a favourite scene??

I love it all, but my top 3 scenes are,
3: The cutting of the bottle..(double or nothin Jack.. Your out of your mind Wang but God bless ya)
2: Jack rippin the crap out of Lopan after he reveals who he really is..(you can rule the universe from beyond the grave, INDEED!, or check into a psycho ward, whatever comes first uh)
1: From the porkchop express(When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail." )
