The Shaw Brothers set as seen in
Royal Tramp
submitted by Sean Tierney

In 2002, Sean Tierney had a chance to tour the Shaw Brothers sets and happened to snap a photo in front of this well-worn structure. As luck would have it, the angle of his photo is almost identical to a scene from the Stephen Chow film Royal Tramp! However, the foot traffic was a lot thinner when Sean visited.

View from the Tsing Ma Bridge
as seen in Heroic Duo
submitted by Sean Tierney

Reader Sean Tierney submitted the following find: a view from the Tsing Ma Bridge identical to that seen in the male bonding action flick Heroic Duo, starring Leon Lai and Ekin Cheng. In the film sequence, Officer Ken (Ekin Cheng) is escaping from the cops, and jumps from the Tsing Ma Bridge to make good his getaway. Please don't cry; he lives, and goes on to rout the bad guys in ass-kicking, homoerotic fashion.

<< A scene from Heroic Duo. At first glance, one might think it's an exact copy of the above picture made murky to better imitate a DVD screen capture. However, the water trail left by the boat disproves that theory. HA!
 
 
<< Another shot from the same scene in Heroic Duo. This is a pullback shot revealing part of the Tsing Ma Bridge and, in the lower right hand corner, Ekin Cheng as Officer Ken! Yes, that's Ekin Cheng. It's not some guy in a suit pretending to be Ekin Cheng; it's really him. If you doubt us, go buy a copy and see for yourself. It's better than For Bad Boys Only.
