Something about fight scenes featuring him, they tend to be slower but the wider swings of his arms and the force behind his punches/kicks make it seem more real. Love his work, I'll have to track this one down.
Sammo Hung's got a small role at the start too.

Just got back from two days at the festival. It's 3 am on Sunday. On Friday, I saw Not Quite Hollywood. It was amazing, an excellent documentary on the subject and a great film to recommend to newcomers to Australian exploitation. The film was followed by Question & Answer with some industry veterans involved in the era, including Brian Trenchard-Smith (the great director of Turkey Shoot, Dead End Drive-in & The Man From Hong Kong among other things) & Tony Ginnane (basically the Roger Corman of Australia, producer of such films as Fantasm, Patrick & Turkey Shoot), as well as the director of Not Quite Hollywood, Mark Hartley.

On Saturday I attended a seminar with them and some others on Ozploitation, which was excellent and I'm led to believe will be broadcast this Thursday on something, so I'll try and record it and make it available to you all.

I'll post a review of Not Quite Hollywood for the Deuce tomorrow. At the moment I am dead tired. All in all, it was great. The last film I watched was Tokyo Gore Police at midnight and Brian Trenchard-Smith and Tony Ginnane sat in front of me at the screening. It was great. They are really cool guys and really passionate.

What a douche. Monocultural? Sexist? Racist? He just finished saying that more than causing social change, films follow social change. Besides, to gauge these films as anything other than entertainment and cinema is ludicrous. Entertainment has become like a dirty word in the Australian film industry. The government funds films that have "cultural significance" and never return a profit. The people who make films for profit are ridiculed. What bullshit.

Here's a link to a Q&A we did in Australia with the director of Not Quite Hollywood as well as legendary Aussie actor Roger Ward, greatest stuntman EVER, Grant Page (Mad Max) and a few other colorful characters...
