A prison fight erupts
Wu Jing takes on Tony Jaa in prison

Tony Jaa, Wu Jing, Max Zhang Jin put a lot of effort into the Soi Cheang Po Shui new film SPL 2 (SAT POR LONG II) with hardcore martial art fight scenes. To keep from frequent bad takes, the trio would tell each other to "fight for real" and end up with bruises all over. Seeing his male leads frequent injuries, Director Cheang felt bad. "In one scene Wu Jing almost broke his leg from fighting. When he got married he had to be in a wheel chair to get off the plane. When he invited me to his wedding I didn't even dare to go, I was afraid that his wife would be mad!"

Wu Jing this time seriously risked his life for the shoot. In one scene he climbed on a stack of tables and performed a free fall without any wire at all. As the tables fell Wu Jing had no way to dodge them and was almost hit in the head! Zhang Jin during the prison gang fight due to the lack of air circulation suddenly fainted from heat stroke during the break. The crew had to give him a hand.
