Gentlemen of Asskickery: The Dapper Fist of Zhang Jin

Zhang Jin was Zhang Ziyi’s stunt double in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and was a stunt performer in Hero (2002). He won Best Supporting Actor at the Hong Kong Film awards for his portrayal of Ma San in Wong Kar-Wai’s tribute to Ip Man, The Grandmaster (201.  He was Ghost Eyes in From Vegas To Macau (2014) and Wu Long in the new Wong Fei-Hong movie, Rise Of The Legend (2014). He played the young Mue Che in Shaolin vs. Evil Dead: Ultimate Power (2006).

And from the SPL 2 stills and posters, it looks like Zhang Jin is Master of Dapper Fist.

Dapperly villainous.

Fine, I’ll take off my jacket, but only because there’s two of you.

Fit is crucial in a duel.

Wu Jing has been framed and imprisoned for fashion crimes.

And then there is Louis Koo. What is he even doing? Do you even recognize him?

See Zhang Jin kick ass with style tonight!
