The Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Wu Chen and Qi Yuwu starred martial art film 14 BLADES (GUM YI WAI) earlier wrapped up its shoot in Yinchuan. Yesterday, the team unveiled a set of Yen Chi Tan "bathing" stills. For this scene, Chi Tan prepared for two months. Everyday he skipped lunch and persisted with his training just so that he could achieve the "developed muscle" effect that the director asked for. Chi Tan joked, "I should make time to shoot a pictorial collection." Among his recent kung fu films, Yen Chi Tan said that 14 BLADES was the one with the most fights and the most difficult fights. Aside from Vicki Zhao Wei, he and other leads Wu Chen, Kate Tsui Tsz Shan, Qi Yuwu all had scenes together as they fought from Hengdian all the time to Yinchuan. This film's action director Kuk Hin Chiu is top action director Yuen Woo Ping's disciple. His action design styles are very tough and forced Yen Chi Tan to pay extra attention every time. Halfway through the shoot he aggravated his old leg injury. To keep from hindering the schedule, Yen Chi Tan worked despite the injury and completed his scenes.
