Lau Ching-wan (Ching-wan translates to "blue-cloud")
In some mysterious manner and at some undeterminable point in the 90s Lau Ching-wan became HKs finest
male actor and one of its most popular leading men. Lau continued learning his craft but more importantly he magically
gained charisma buckets of it and the face once considered ungainly instead now had character. Some actors have it right from
the beginning, others grow into it a maturing process that needs to take place and this is clearly what happened with Lau.
Now having secured his position as a leading man, Lau Ching-wan then moved on to become
an action star. There were a few stars aligned correctly for this to happen Chow Yun Fat leaving HK for the US created a vacuum
that Lau was able to fill and secondly was the near death of the martial arts film and the emergence of the contemporary urban
thriller. I dont think Lau could kick his way out of a paper bag, but his charismatic business like attitude was just right
for these types of sleek, sophisticated films. In 1996 he appeared in Big Bullet as a tough fast thinking cop and showed that
he could handle these types of roles. Over the next three years he appeared in a number of these gritty type films that were
easily the best films being made in HK at the time. Lau was a favorite of Milkyways Johnnie To even before To went on to form
Milkyway, and was to appear in many of his films (E.g., Needing You and Lifeline).
Laus filmography for the last few years of the century are an amazing series of
films Beyond Hypothermia, Lifeline, Too Many Ways Too Be No. 1, Full Alert, The Longest Nite, Expect the Unexpected, A Hero
Never Dies, Where a Good Man Goes, Running Out of Time and The Victim. Not only are these a series of astonishingly good films,
but Lau is brilliant and very different in all of them. Compare his killer cowboy character in A Hero Never Dies to the frightening
bald headed psycho in The Longest Nite to the hapless triad member in Too Many Ways to the tightly wound police inspector
in Full Alert to the relaxed genial detective sergeant in Expect the Unexpected. Its a brilliant accomplishment.
