Imo Chan was always at his best from '78 to '94.

That was the golden period for me when the physical genius could hardly put a foot wrong and we all know how popular his collaborations with Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao were. Vintage HK action brilliance!

His latter-day Hollywood efforts have been servicable and entertaining but anybody who has only ever seen Chan's U.S. outings and thinks they've caught the best of the former Drunken Master is very wrong!

I think all of us old-school Chan fans know this for sure and there's plenty of celluloid proof to back it up!

Chan may well be showing his age now but i'll always respect and admire the undeniable influence and impact his work has had on the martial arts and action genres.

The man is a true screen legend.
