He is a bad actor, so was Bruce Lee. But then we watch their movies for the fights, not their acting.

i didnt say anything about his acting skills or fighting skills. I just dont like his face. He seems in perpetual need of an oil control face cream.
I wont like Rajesh Khanna also if he indulged in kungfu judo karate etc etc with a smile pasted on his face all the time.

well Bruce Lee was never really acting in his movies - he was mostly fighting or trying to explain his philosophy on the martial arts. However most people don't really understand the things he is trying to explain, even today. As I understood from the footage in "the warrior's journey", we would have seen a lot if "game of death" was ever completed the way he saw it - both in terms of fights as well philosophy .
ahh well we need to survive on enter the dragon, way of the dragon, chinese connection and big boss, great movies to catch on a weekend

I own a few books of his, so I generally understand his philosophy. But whenever he is not fighting in his movies, he is terrible to watch. The Chinese Connection does have some acting, which is bad, he almost acts like Mr.Bean in Rome.

Miss July? Actually, I didn't realise she was a real Miss July until now. Ok, she can get some credit too. But Tommy Lee delivered the best performance and dialogues.

I own only one book "the tao of jeet kune do" However I believe he progressed beyond this state and this book does not represent all that he wanted to say!
he is actually mr. bean in rome - but that is not in chinese connection that is in "way of the dragon" - the same movie where he fights his real life student chuck norris in the end

Did you never watch "Baywatch"? It was every young man's fantasy when it started. Young women, many playmates, running around on the beach and saving lives.
Many playmates starred in Baywatch including Erika Eleniak, Pamela Anderson and Donna D'Erico.

Under Siege was one of the few movies that Erika Eleniak (there were a couple more) starred in and she was definitely a crowd-puller, especially when she jumped out of the cake.

Erika was a real beauty in Baywatch. Not much of an actor though, just a piece of decorative furniture.

Not regularly, only if there was nothing else to watch.

thats interesting! radically opposing point of view!
but yes, in a sense you are probably justified because I preferred the book of the whole episode which I read years ago.

Btw with his height, in all his fights he seems to be literally playing with his opponents
Did it occurred to anyone maybe the directors take all the other guys below 5.8 so he can look menacing

+1. His acting is nothing too talk about but i like the way he fights.
And thanks for the info,didn't know the style has a name too-for me everything is martial arts(lack of smileys are pinching)

Watched Untraceable this weekend.
Its ok kinds. The way of murdering people was too much but justified from a Pyscho's point of view.
Whoever has not seen can give it a pass and the movie is not for ladies.
Rating- 2/5
