Yup so pointless! He acted like he was on drugs in Ip Man 2 - not saying he was, just that the role he played was so OTT and performed that way that he could have been off his tits and no-one would have noticed I bet!

Yeah, he was terrible in that movie. From what I hear he was a genuine nice guy to all around him, so it's a shame what happened to him, and also I assume his role in Ip Man was for the most part to blame on extremely poor writing and directing. Often, you see western actors in HK movies to be very 1-dimensional and OTT, which obviously results in just very bad performances.

Apparently he died of kidney failure. :(
I remember the Rugby World Cup in 1995, Lomu was 19/20 years old or so and destroyed England, he was so fast that defenders just bounced off him.
