Default Re: Mandarin discussion thread

As mush as I like Ken Watanabe and Chow Yun Fat I am a little tired of seeing them as villains in hollywood blockbuster so I would like to see them go after someone like Hong Kong film superstar Andy Lau.

He speaks fluent English but has mainly stayed in Chinese movies because he thinks the roles he would get in Hollywood would be the usual stereotypical asian ones but his not against making movies in the west if a good role comes his way and someone like Shane Black would allow him to do something different with Mandarin than the usual Fu Manchu act.

His best known in the west for Infernal Affairs (remade as The Departed), House Of Flying Daggers and Warlords.
