The Raid - a Gareth Evans/Iko Uwais experience

Maybe I should've put this here a long time ago, due to the nature of it, however after its American premiere this movie is heading to UK where it would have an exclusive screening date at May 18th.

 I would like to popularise this by spreading the word through my article - providing some trailers too, to make all the fans of martial arts movies a glimpse of what is coming next. 

After Merantau put Iko and Gareth on the world martial arts movies map, with The Raid I think they've made a solid statement that will be followed by many others. Good luck to all involved in filming this entertainment.

On to trailers - the original, the one for the american audience and a brief scene from the movie. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Jackie Chan!

Today one of the most famous martial arts movies star is turning 58 - Chan The Man is getting older and wiser, as he point out some time ago that "Chinese Zodiac" will be his last action movie. 

Anyway, he proved to be quite versatile actor, starring in both drama and action movies with decent success (Shinjuku Incident & Little Big Soldier for example). 

I would like to wish him plenty of health, lots of happiness, discovering new talents for the martial arts scene and not to go off camera too soon. 

Happy Birthday!!! Kung hei!!!
 58 is just a number and not something which might worry Mr. Chan, however with a career so active and demanding, he would most certanly need lots of HP (health points), to achieve more accomplishments in the RPG called Life.

Don't worry, be happy and sing in the rain...
