李安導演說:「王羽不僅奠定了武俠巨星的標準,更是拳腳動作片的開先河之人。」

Academy Award-winning film director Ang Lee (李安) said Jimmy Wang not only set the bar for action film superstars, but is also a martial arts film pioneer.

“His (Jimmy Wang’s) self-starred and directed movie ‘The Chinese Boxer’ (龍虎鬥) started the genre of martial arts films even before Bruce Lee, inspiring many followers and even people around the world,” Lee said, according to the statement.
