HK Cinema - 1992
One of the most loved and most hated directors/producers
of the HK film scene is the amazingly prolific Wong Jing. He has gained
a reputation for producing trashy, tasteless, stylish, fast moving, and
often extremely popular films. He makes no claims to being an artist. His
credo is give the people what they want and he has been doing that since
the early 1980’s.
Certainly one of the best representations of his
work is Naked Killer. It is full of style, sex, violence and Chingmy Yau.
Chingmy just sizzles on the screen and became the top sex siren in HK films.
Wong Jing developed a personal relationship with her and was to use Chingmy
in many of his films.
Lots of people may look with disdain on Wong’s
work, but there is no ignoring him. Some of my favorites films of his are
God of Gamblers I & II, Royal Tramp I & II, Flying Dagger, The
Last Hero in China, Kung Fu Cult Master, Fight Back to School, City Hunter,
Boys are Easy, New Legend of Shaolin, High Risk and of course I am Your
