Hong Kong action film, Raging Fire (怒火) starring Donnie Yen (甄子丹) and Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) and directed by Benny Chan (陳木勝) is currently airing in cinema. In one particular scene, Nicholas held a grenade during a gun shoot with Donnie at Tsim Sha Tsui. It looked extremely dangerous when there was a major fire behind Nicholas.
Apparently, Nicholas filmed many action scenes in the past. In Invisible Target (男兒本色) movie directly by Benny more than 10 years ago, he shot several action scenes personally and deliberately bought an insurance in the US. Nicholas said during an interview at the time: “I believe we will achieve the best effects by filming this way. Although there are other action films in the world, but Hong Kong is the best as nothing is impossible.”
Besides Invisible Target and Raging Fire movies, Nicholas also risks his life for other films and it is rumoured that no insurance companies is willing to insure for him.
