A serious loss, Brad Allan has died at 48 of a heart attack.  He's not the most visible guy around, but he was one of the best action choreographers in the business, and I honestly don't know who can step into his shoes in western films.  He was the first non-Asian member of Jackie Chan's stunt team, and famously fought him in probably Chan's best fights of the last 25 years in Gorgeous - Allan was an incredible wushu performer.

He also choreographed the action sequences in films like Hellboy 2, Kick-Ass, Pacific Rim, Kingsman, and the upcoming Shang-Chi film.  Often he 2nd unit directed on these films as well.

RIP.

As a tribute, here is the second of the two fights he performed for Gorgeous.

Sad news. He filmed Who Am I in South Africa with Jackie Chan and was featured in the docco Jackie Chan: My Stunts.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
