    Did you hear that rumor that Sammo was killed? That was some scary sh!t. Thank God it wasn't true. The report said he got ran over by a bus, but it takes more than a bus to get rid of Sammo!

    I got an email from Bey Logan about this movie. He said the final fight between Wu Jing and Sammo is awesome.

    i have a friend on sammo's stunt team who told me about the movie and the rumour. i didn't hear about it until fairly recently, but come on you see how big sammo is a bus would hit him and he'd look back and say stop shoving. LOL anyway glad that he's back as a leading man.

    Sammo Hung

    Sammo Hung hospitalized
    1.72 metres is 5' 6", 111 kilograms is 245 lb.
    HK actor Sammo Hung hospitalised for heart surgery
    Posted: 14 August 2009 1428 hrs

    HONG KONG: Legendary Chinese martial arts actor and acclaimed Hong Kong director Sammo Hung was admitted into hospital a week ago for heart surgery.

    The star reportedly felt unwell while filming “Ip Man 2”, the sequel to the semi-biographical kungfu film on the celebrated martial arts master of Bruce Lee, in the Guangdong province of Foshan on August 5.

    He returned to Hong Kong ahead of schedule for an emergency admission to hospital for an operation.

    The 57 year-old actor was discharged after a few days and has since returned to work.

    Hung revealed that his heart has been in a less-than-ideal condition due to long filming hours and frequent overtime work resulting in fatigue and irregular meals. His love for cigars also contributed to his ailing health.

    Moreover, at his height of 1.72 metres, he is tipping the scales at 111 kilograms which makes him morbidly obese.

    Although not in the pink of health yet, Hung told Hong Kong reporters that his condition has since stabilised.

    “Everything is back to normal even though my weight has become a health issue, causing heart problems. I am now back at work and I would like to thank everyone for their concern,” said Hung.

    Sorry to hear of Sammo's health problems, but unfortunately I'm not all that surprised. Hopefully he'll give up the cigars and be able to get down to a healthier weight for himself. I'm glad that he's alright, anyway.

    I'm glad despite the circumstances that Sammo is alright as of current, hopefully his health issues become more of a priority for him personally. Sammo Hung is definitely one of the greats!

    Yeah, it was only a matter of time, unfortunately. Time to start losing that image of, wow he's so fat and he can move like that?!

    If he can get back down to his "Enter the Dragon" size, that'd be good. Wow. I even remember saying back in the day, "...yeah, that fat guy Bruce Lee fought at the beginning of Enter!"

    Hopefully Jackie and Biao are getting on his case about this!

    Im not fat, per se, but I've got enough of a belly that I always likened myself to Sammo. I'm only 5'4 or 5'5 and im about 35 lbs less than him. If that isn't enough incentive to lose the poncho I don't know what is... except if Yuen Biao and Jackie Chan were yelling at me???

    *however, i do have a little more muscle than he does, so i have a little bit of an excuse than him...

    wishing him well.

    quick recovery.

    at this age, health is more important than anything else.

    I remember him acting when he was a young boy.

    Hi guys,

    I watched My Lucky Stars the other day and it seems Hung has some training in Southern Kung Fu. Does anyone know if he's done any Choy Lee Fut?

    Thanks guys

    Sammo tends to get a crash course in a style before he does a film about it. As he's recently done a film about CLF I imagine he recently learned some.
    Actually thinking about it he probably learned some for Knockabout.
