Benny Chan

Benny Chan defined his unique blend of dramatic action filmmaking with the Andy Lau vehicle A Moment of Romance (1990), and further defined it with the thrillers Man Wanted (1995) and Big Bullet (1996).

Moving up gears in 2000, he reinvented young idols Nicholas Tse, Daniel Wu, Stephen Fung and Edison Chen as ice-cool millennium action heroes in new ago police thrillers Gen-X Cops (1999) and Gen-Y Cops (2000). The 2003 psychological thriller Heroic Duo marked a real return to form for Benny. Divergence (2005) garnered three Golden Horse awards and proved Chan is every inch the slick stylist.

However, it is in directing Jackie Chan in the transnational action adventure Who Am I? (1998) and the taut suspense thriller New Police Story (2004) that a special chemistry is sparked off.
