Chui Heung Tung

Other names : 徐向东
Xu Xiang Dong
Activities : Action Director (1), Actor (7)


Like Jet Li, Chui Heung-tung is a Mainland Wu-shu champion (speciality "Eagle Claw") who got recruited in the movies in the early eighties. In Holy Robe of Shaolin (84), he plays a young fighting monk in a mission to hide a holy robe from some of the Shaolin Temple enemies including a Wu Tang assassin played by Yu Rong Guang. This superior, bombastic Mainland Wu-shu film showed Chui as a superb Wu-shu performer, appropriately intense and stoic but somewhat bland except for a nice set of puppy eyes which played well into the movie’s ill-fated romantic sub-plot with Chui’s fighting-maiden co-star.

If Chui made any other Mainland movie it is not known by this reviewer. He did a brief but noticeable appearance in Wing Chun (94), as Master Wong who challenges the titular character to the tofu duel; one of the film’s great moments. Chui looked significantly older and less wooden than in Holy Robe as he was given plenty of goofy faces to do as he is bested by Michelle Yeoh.
