Life of Action in Fighting Spirit Magazine

If you, too, were getting your pro wrestling fix in the January 2018 issue of Fighting Spirit Magazine, you may have spotted Life of Action and Scott Adkins‘ unmistakeable character, Yuri Boyka, within the pages of the magazine. As I work on the upcoming second volume, with more news to follow soon, this was a great boost and motivation to see!

I was very happy to join Ben at Kung Fu Movie Guide Podcast for a special end of year show to wrap up 2017. We are discussing the year’s top martial arts movie news and running down our best (and worst) films of the year and exchanging presents.

Re:Born hits hard in the UK

Re:Born starring Tak Sakaguchi (Versus, Yakuza Weapon) and directed by Yuji Shinomura had its UK premiere at the The Fighting Spirit Film Festival 2017 ahead of Eureka Entertainment’s home release. For those familiar with Tak’s work, Re:Born’s early trailers teased a return to his tough, full-contact style of action which puts both himself and his stunt players through their paces (he broke his own neck filming a long take fight in Yakuza Weapon!). This movie also brings him out of retirement having stepped …

Eden Gray Premiere

I had a great time at the premiere screening of new action short, Eden Gray. I coordinated the fight action with my good friend and co-fight choreographer Francois Mequer (Tensions, Unleashed). Afterwards I took part in a Q&A alongside (left to right in picture) producer R.E. Wolfe, actress Mhairi Calvey, writer/director Ty Samuels, actor Keith Porter and actor/host Timothy Hofmeier. In the story, soldier Eden Gray becomes the target of a shadow agency when she escapes a facility after being subjected …

Simon West in Life of Action 2

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of 90’s action classic Con Air, I took the opportunity to proudly announce British director Simon West in my next book, Life of Action 2. He reflects and shares great stories on this epic feature debut, and his vast career over the years spanning The Expendables 2, The Mechanic, Wild Card, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and developing and producing Black Hawk Down. He says: “I didn’t really know anything about action. I grew up watching the films of Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, David …
