Red Trousers: The Life of the Hong Kong Stuntmen (Chinese: 紅褲子) is a documentary film directed by Robin Shou.

Plot[edit]

This documentary from Robin Shou—who also hosts and participates in the film—takes a behind-the-scenes glance inside the stunt industry of Hong Kong, which is known for being riskier and less trick-oriented than its American counterpart. In addition to archival and interview footage featuring some of the industry's most prominent stuntmen, Red Trousers - The Life of Hong Kong Stuntmen incorporates scenes from adventure short action film Lost Time (2001) in an effort to illustrate how stuntmen prepare for and ultimately perform in modern martial arts films.
