Bloodsport - Jean Claude Van Damme (1987) - Marine Police HQ Interior, Tsim Sha Tsui

After seeing what the area around the Marine Police HQ used to look like, here are a few shots taken in the interior as the two US police (played by Norman Burton and a very young and slim Forest Whitaker) meet with the HK Police Inspector (Philip Chen, who also played the gangster in Double Impact).

Of course, the only upside to the recent reopening of the old HQ (it's been turned into the Hullet Hotel) is that it is more accessible now than it was previously - although more so to guests than just scruffy oiks like you and me - but at least you can wander around the verandahs and peer inside without having to pay through the nose for one of the rooms.

We also get to see some more of the Marine Police HQ later on in the film when our intrepid reporter feels the need to try and enlist Police support in stopping Dux from doing any more fighting.

  1. Both the Production Designer/Art Director, David Searl and Script Supervisor, Nonette Tsang Garcia, still live in HK. David works at ICE-TV Asia and Nonette works with autistic kids. Nonette's husband, Ah Fai a lighting cameraman, left Salon Films in 1997 to head up Cinerent's expansion in the Philippines. He's still with them.
