“Looking up to my action idols made me first hit the gym, begin training and aspire to achieve more and more from myself” - from Life of Action
Mike Fury has always nurtured a deep passion for film and, more specifically, action genre cinema. As a result, channelling his journalism background, he has written extensively on the subject which ultimately led him to conceive the book series, “Life of Action”, speaking first hand to world-famous actors, filmmakers and stunt people to unveil the unique process making some of the most highly regarded films of their kind. The original book was a huge success, with rave reviews and positive feedback from filmmakers, industry experts and fans all over the world. As a result, a new second book is currently underway.
His writing has featured in Martial Arts Illustrated, Combat, MMA Uncaged, Jade Screen: The Ultimate Asian Movie Magazine, Screen Power: The Jackie Chan Magazine, Hong Kong Cinemagic and AskMen.
As an author, he also contributed two chapters in “Enter the Fat Dragon: The Life and Films of Sammo Hung”, the first ever book on Hong Kong’s legendary star and filmmaker.
Being a martial artist, he has worked on several feature films, both as a performer and coordinator. He also hosts and appears at film events including MCM Comic Con, The Fighting Spirit Film Festival and more, driven by a passion to share and spread the love for these interconnected art forms.
