Donnie Yen and Jackie Chan 

After the success, Donnie and Wilson Yip teamed up immediately for more collaborations which includes the comic book adaptation Lung fu moon (2006) and the hard-hitting action drama Dou fo sin (2007), both very successful at the box-office and among the local audience who today considers him as the new pinnacle of Hong Kong martial arts/action movies for these accomplishments. Donnie both earned the "Best Action Design" nomination at the 2006 Hong Kong Film Awards as well as the "Best Action Direction" nomination at 2006 Golden Bauhinia Awards for Lung fu moon (2006) ending up winning the latter, while he was awarded for his action design on Dou fo sin (2007) at both the 2007 Golden Bauhinia Awards and the 2007 Hong Kong Film Awards.

Recently, Donnie had a leading role in the battle epic Kong saan mei yan (2008) directed by acclaimed Hong Kong action director Siu-Tung Ching which was a big success in Mainland China, and will next be seen in the supernatural romance movie Wa pei (2008) by Gordon Chan, and the martial arts biopic Ip Man (2008) helmed by Wilson Yip which will be based on a true story of one of Bruce Lee's martial arts teachers, Yip Man. With these quality projects in the making, it's expected that Donnie will work on many more projects as a leading actor and action director in the approaching years to come, which fans and movie goers will be very delighted to see.

Through his progression in the Hong Kong film industry from the start, when he was just like any other action performer, to nowadays as one of the most offering leading martial arts actors and the most promising action director it's been proved that as long as Donnie Yen is still active in movie-making, whether working in front of or behind the camera, he will most certainly break grounds and hopefully create more innovative concepts for the martial arts action genre which fans are eager to see on the big screen.
