Though, he's not a character you'd count on to steal the show from the lead actor, you can't really stereotype him, either. His standout roles included Lady Assassins, Usurphers Of The Emperor's Power, and Holy Flame Of The Martial World. He was one of few actors, to make the transition between kung-fu films of the early 80's and the Hong Kong Action films that would soon follow. Considering that he came into films near the decline of kung-fu era, the transition should have been smooth. Years later, he would star in the film, that would help to revive them - Once Upon A Time In China with Jet Li.
He can (also) be seen in the Samo Hung hit, Pedicab Driver. He gave an excellent performance as "Crow", in the blazing action film Hero Of Tomorrow, where he put all questions about his acting ability to rest. He seems to be more suited for the "New Wave" era, than the kung-fu films he, originally, starred in. This was basically, because his fighting skills, really left something to be desired. In other words, "He was an actor, not a fighter". Yet, with the right role, he could have became, one of the genre's more popular stars.
