|V S : On video, yes. I had Chinese friends with whom we would lend videotapes. But I don't particularly regret the Hong Kong cinema of that time. For instance, I liked the gunfights but I found it was a bit ridiculous that a gun loader could shoot so many bullets without ever getting reloaded. It was never-ending! (Laughs) But luckily, in some of those films, the script was well written, as for A Better Tomorrow. So we don't really remember the bad aspects.
Regarding martial action, Bruce Lee was THE influence. I like a lot Jackie Chan too, but it’s another style, it’s action but also comedy. And Jackie Chan did a great job on the choreography, with his team. I like both styles equally. With Bruce Lee, you see real street fights, there’s no cheating, there’s no cable. As for Jackie, it’s a bit like in a circus, but he’s the best in this genre and I have a lot of respect for that
