Biography by Jonathan E. Laxamana

Wong Jing is a veteran filmmaker in Hong Kong cinema and has directed over 50 films. Almost all of his works have been popular action movies intended for mainstream consumption. However, Wong is less concerned with artistic achievement than he is with entertainment and is unapologetic about the commercial nature of the movies that he writes, directs, and produces. He has directed both kung fu films and crime thrillers, many of his films being both campy and exploitative. Nevertheless, Wong's best known film, The God of Gamblers contained many fine dramatic moments and was well-received by critics and fans in the West. Always true to form, Wong used the film's critical success as a springboard to create several more sequels.
