Sixteen papers drawn from the 2003 conference at Lingnan University explore the significance of Hong Kong in shaping action cinema, which is now of course such a major element in transnational popular culture. Film specialists assess how Hong Kong action cinema has fared in culturally divergent countries including Japan, Korea, India, Australia, France and the US as well as in the Chinese world. With notes and index.
