Bolo Yeung as Chong Li in Bloodsport (Cannon Films)

One thing can be said about an upcoming documentary about this action legend: it’s about time!

Bolo Yeung, who action fans will know from hit films like Enter the Dragon, Bloodsport, and Double Impact as well as some underrated 90’s martial arts B-movies, is the focus of an upcoming documentary entitled Chinese Hercules: The Bolo Yeung Story.


The film, still in production, is being directed by the duo of Aziz Cem and Pavel Nyziak, the latter coming up with the idea, and contains the story of the former bodybuilding champion and martial artist who has had a successful career in both Chinese and American martial arts films spanning for over four decades.

There will be interviews with those who have worked and are closely associated with Yeung, including the likes of Ian Chow, Mo Chow, Bob Wall, Bobbie Phillips, Richard Norton, Matthias Hues and Cynthia Rothrock.

Expect to see the long-awaited Chinese Hercules: The Bolo Yeung Story in 2019.
