Our Favorite Faces Of Andy Lau
Last weekend, Zhang Yimou's fantasy epic The Great Wall premiered in North America, and while it's silly as hell, it is undeniably gorgeous-looking. While he did call it "nonsense", our J. Hurtado also said in his review that it's a "surprisingly ambitious siege movie that is hard not to enjoy at least a little bit".

Of course, any movie will increase its watchability when it includes Chinese superstar Andy Lau. While enjoying immense success as a singer, he first and foremost is one of the finest actors in the world, and one whose charisma can almost keep any film afloat all by itself.

So, what are your favorite performances by Andy Lau? Do you like him better as a good guy, or as a bad guy?

Chime in, in the comments below!

Infernal Affairs and Fulltime Killer are my two favorites pieces.
I remember watching drunken master 3 where he was the lead actor and the fight scenes were pretty nice. Shaolin was also a good one.
It's a shame they didn't cast him and Tony leung in leading roles in Hollywood.
I think his english is pretty good and he's been internationally acknowledged ever since infernal affairs.

For me it's A Simple Life, House of Flying Daggers, and Infernal Affairs.
(So basically when he's playing the good, the bad, or both...)

With one of the most impressive filmography and incredible acting range (even when compared with other great HK stars), I always wondered why Lau has never broke out in the international film scene. Anyone has answers to that?

My all time favorite of his will be As Tears Go By

Fulltime Killer and Detective Dee spring to mind.

Battle of Wits and The War Lords along with Detective Dee

He was once given a script as villain , i dont remember the movie, but John lone got it. Past years he dont like America always cast Asians as villain or just somewhat annoying. He got many scipts from Hollywood but yeah not suitable for him anyway.

Infernal Affairs.

I just realised Andy Lau and Matt Damon played the same character in their respective Infernal Affairs.
