Although I am not a fan of many action movies, "The Replacement Killers" is on tv right now, and I must say that Chow Yun Fat (spelled right?) is one bad dude. He's quiet, cool, and got that "look." Personally, I think he could kick VanDamme's, Segal's, and Norris's a$$. I also remember seeing him on a talk show, and if my memory serves me correctly, he's very soft spoken. His movies seem unrealistic, but in an old fashioned, shoot-em-up way. ***ptp

Try watching Boiling Point. One of the most violent movies I have. Theres this one part where Chow, w/a Mossy 590 and an accomplice walk through a hospital blowing everybody away for about 7 min... all in one take. It's awesome.

Do you mean "Hard Boiled?" The one with the shootout in the tea house at the beginning? Jarhead out.

Please don't mention Norris in the same sentence as VanDamme and Segal. Those guys couldn't even wear Norris's jock. Chow Yun Fat might be able to take VanDamme and Segal but Norris takes him out in 5 seconds.

I would add that Seagal would last longer since he actually had training and VanDamme is just really a coached actor....

Haven't seen to many Chow Yung Fat movies(didn't think Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was all that great, and I refused to watch the one he did with Jodie Foster). I did like Jet Li in "The Black Mask". Ever notice it gets harder and harder to enjoy action movies the more you learn about guns and weapons tactics.

try to stay away from the american version of the hongkong action movie and stick to the original. CTHD is great if you have NEVER, EVER, EVER, seen a hongkong action movie in your entire life up to that point. I've seen my share, not impressed. "Anna and the king"? it's got my vote for "most wasteful of film reels"

Arnold is the master "tough guy" for action films - and Bruce Lee was (and still is IMO) the real master for fighting. Chuck needs to retire. Major has-been. Van Damme is the "girly boy". I think that most guys hate him cause a lot of chics like him. I think people don't give him enough credit. Segal at least is an advocate for firearm ownership, but he is another has-been. Chow Yun Fat is okay - Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sucked big time. Just my .02 [}:D] Tyler

Easy on Mr. Norris, there. He's 'one of us' and I ain't too sure about Segal & VanDamme's views on the RKBA. [>]:)]

Eric, Segal is one of us in a big way. He has a thing for customized 1911's and has attended several of the better known training courses. I got my info from a Guns & Ammo several years ago. Semper Fi
