Filming Wrapped on Eden Gray

I have just wrapped filming Eden Gray, a kickass new short action/thriller. In the story, soldier Eden Grey becomes the target of a shadow agency when she escapes a facility after being subjected to an off-the-record experiment. On the run, Eden must avoid capture and go public with evidence that will expose the startling truth behind the clinical trials. It is written and directed by Tyrone Samuels, a very talented young filmmaker, and stars Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart) in the title role. The whole …

Redcon-1 on the Horizon

Redcon-1 is a movie I’ve had on the radar for sometime. Touted to be an ambitious British action/horror epic, I’ve been keeping a close watch since its very early development and have been a fan of the filmmaking team for many years, even interviewing writer/director Chee Keong Cheung, actor/producer Carlos Gallardo and actor/producer Mark Strange in Life of Action. Cheung and Strange have made homegrown Brit indie action movies like 12 and Bodyguard: A New Beginning and Gallardo is best known for his famous collaborations with Robert …

Guest on Spin 1038 Radio

I joined Gordon Hayden on SPIN 1038 to talk Life of Action and all things action cinema.

If you love your action and martial arts movies then you’ll be intrigued to read Life of Action from fight choreographer and movie journalist Mike Fury. It features interviews …

Discovering Jino Kang

I recently discovered the work of martial artist, actor and filmmaker Jino Kang and wanted to share some thoughts. If you’re an old time fan of 1970’s and 80’s Kung Fu flicks, his work is a fun throwback, particularly for nostalgic nuts like me. Kang was born in South Korea and immigrated to San Francisco with his parents during the 1970’s. As I’ve discovered SF now plays a major backdrop in his films, evidently close to his heart. Today he runs a …

Ti Lung Birthday Tribute

To celebrate the birthday of Shaw Brothers icon Ti Lung, me and a host of others writers share our favourite movies from his vast career. Thanks to Shaolin Chamber 36 for asking me to contribute. “Ti Lung is an action icon in the truest sense. In fact, listing his best kung fu flicks is extremely tough because there are so many greats, just as you’d expect from someone whose career was forged at the iconic Shaw Brothers studios. I also …

Blood Orange drops on DVD

Indie neo-noir Blood Orange is a taut and quietly tense thriller with a scene-stealing turn from music legend and Godfather of Punk Iggy Pop in (remarkably) his first ever lead. Heading up a strong cast of only four, the movie is delivered in style by debut writer/director Toby Tobias. Bill (Pop) is an ageing, half-blind, shotgun-wielding rock star who lives in a secluded Spanish villa with his promiscuous wife Isabelle (Kacey Clarke, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Green Street 3). Out of the blue, her bitter ex-flame Lucas (Ben …

Book review in Martial Arts Illustrated

It was great to see a nice, full page review of Life of Action in the June issue of Martial Arts Illustrated magazine, still the UK’s number one martial arts magazine. Writer Andrew Staton gives the book an excellent review and summarises some of his favourite action stars profiled in the book, alongside some nice images. “From beginner through to Black Belt, MAI covers all styles of martial art, from Karate, Taekwondo and Kung Fu to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Thai boxing, Eskrima and …

Book review from Outlaw Vern

I was pleased to see a great write-up for my book Life of Action courtesy of Outlaw Vern (Seagalogy, Yippee Ki-Yay Moviegoer). If you haven’t read his books or reviews, they come highly recommended. I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time so I’m very grateful and glad he liked it. He wrote: “Fury’s book will continue to be an important resource, particularly for documenting our current era of martial arts movies…” Read the full review here!
