So long as refer to Chinese kung fu, people often think of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li at first, indeed, in China and even the moviedom of the world, the name of the three man are well-known, but people often neglect a person, that’s Donnie Yen.

I think Donnie Yen is a VIP who can’t be ignored among Chinese kung fu star, in Chinese moviedom and even the moviedom of the world. I even think that Donnie Yen will replace Jackie Chan, Jet Li within short time probably and become the new “King of Kung Fu”. I propose this “the contention”, because of the following three major reasons:

First, Donnie Yen has staying power than Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Donnie Yen is still very young compared with Jackie Chan and Jet Li. He has development potentiality even more. At present, Jackie Chan is old, already been in half retired state. And Jet Li has already been a Buddhist. He is enthusiastic about public welfare undertaking, even show that doesn’t shoot kung fu movie again. So, Donnie Yen will substitute Jackie Chan and Jet Li most probably, become the man in charge of Chinese kung fu movie.

Second, Donnie Yen is strong guarantee of the box office like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. In the past, every great kung fu movie that Jackie Chan and Jet Li acted the leading role, were all the guarantee of the box office of global movie. Nowadays, Donnie Yen will become the assurance of the box office too. It is reported, there are 3 Chinese superstars who can ensure a hundred million yuan box office in international moviedom before 2008. They are Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Stephen Chow. Stephen Chow is comic superstar. Kung fu superstar has only Jackie Chan and Jet Li. And now it seems that Donnie Yen will be ranked among it too. Look, the kung fu movie that the cost is only 80 million — Painted Skin. The box office has already reached 200 million yuan in short time. So a good result, not merely let the whole world see the capability that China shoots the magic kung fu blockbuster, but also let people witness the capability of Donnie Yen. People are joyful seeing that Donnie Yen’s behavior is perfect in the movie.

Third, the film output of Donnie Yen is more than Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Jackie Chan and Jet Li have entered film low tide in recent years. Their film output is reduced gradually. As Chinese kung fu superstar of new generation, Donnie Yen has already born the important task. He will perform 3 kung fu blockbusters continuously in 2008 — An Empress and the Warriors, Painted Skin and Ip Man.

Expect Donnie Yen brings more pleasant surprise to us!
