His fight with Bruce Lee was EXTRAaaaaORdinARY!!! Shek Kin (HAN) is dead!
Hey folks, Harry here... and I have more unfortunate news to share. It seems that David Carradine was not the only actor from the realm of Martial Arts filmmaking to passaway yesterday. Shek Kin, the man who portrayed the greatest cinematic martial arts villain in history... is gone.
Though a veteran of 122 Hong Kong films - he is best remembered as the astonishing HAN.
ENTER THE DRAGON was my absolute blinding obsession as a child. I've seen it hundreds of times in my life and have much of Shek Kin's dialogue committed to memory - and he is easily my favorite all time Martial Arts Movie Bad Guy.
I've had innumerable conversations with fellow Enter The Dragon geeks, like Brett Ratner, about the awesome that was Han. Think about it - here you have a man that owns an island - filled with pathetic would be kung fu thugs, that stand around punching air, putting their hands into burning coals, monitoring a radio station (underground), etc. Then he has all of these beautiful women that'll f*ck whomever he wants. Add to that - he's apparently sired around 20 gorgeous virginal woman of approximately the same age, all of whom are lethal martial artists. His hand was blown off by a would-be assassin, but instead of being bitter - he has someone build him a wild assortment of badass hands that are action figure plug & play!
Shek was always fun to spot in other classic Hong Kong films like Jackie Chan's DRUNKEN MASTER or ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA with Jet Li! He's been retired for years now. He died of kidney failure at the age of 96. It is a dark day for fans of martial arts everywhere!
