    That Buster Keaton BS is why I like Jackie Chan over any other action star.

    Ok... they were talking about NOT Recognising MARC DECASCOS... also goes by MARC ALAN DECASCOS

    Here's his stats FROM IMDB

    World renowned Martial Artist, among his achievements:

    1982 -- European Kung Fu and Karate Championships -- First Place -- Lightweight -- Brown Belt Division

    1982 -- Italian Kung Fu and Karate Championships -- First Place -- Lightweight -- Brown Belt Division

    1982 -- Hamburg Karate Championships -- First Place -- Junior Division

    HAAAHHH !!!

    Btw... if you REALLY wanna see what he can do...
    Watch "DRIVE"... "ONLY THE STRONG and "BROTHER OF THE WOLF"
    He also did "CROW: Stairway to Heaven"
    Don't know how it is though.

    Movies are really a poor method to determine who is the best martial arts star, because things are so choreographed and only successful acts make it on film.

    Here are some screenshot from the movie
    "CRYING FREEMAN"
    I mean just look at his moves... no ropes nothing... the guy is just plain simple graceful and agile.

    If you are infatuated with agility and grace like me... you are gonna LOVE his fight scenes.
    The problem with him is that he doesn't get much good roles.

    Actors don't get good roles, if they aren' considered marketable.

    There wouldn't even be a Jackie Chan or a Jet Li without Bruce Lee.
    IMHO

    Martial arts film existed BEFORE Bruce Lee. What Bruce did was make the west take notice. But considering that 95% of Jackies career was made in HONG KONG, it wouldnt have made any difference to him:o

    In fact Jackie ALMOST failed BECAUSE of Bruce lee. Everyone wanted to make him (and everyone else) into bruce lee and it just wasn't him. He made his OWN style and became a success in his own right

    It's true that Bruce was the first to bring proper martial arts to the western mainstream but guyverjay got it spot on bout that hindrence thing. I wonder how Bruce's career would have gone if he hadnt died??

    That is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard. You do know that Bruce Lee isn't that big in Hong Kong?
