TVB’s “A Fist Within Four Walls” is the Year’s Hottest Drama

A Fist Within Four Wall <城寨英雄> is bringing all the viewers back to watching TVB. The martial arts drama, starring Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), and Philip Ng (伍允龍), raked in an average of 27 rating points on its first week of release, the highest premiere rating that TVB has seen since 2014. The manhua-inspired kung fu comedy has hoarded a legion of fans online, successfully retaining the viewership from TVB’s last hit, House of Spirits <一屋老友記>.

Four Walls revolves around a team of hot-blooded, heroic kung fu masters who rise against The Association, a criminal organization who has taken control of 1960’s Kowloon Walled City. It is produced by Jazz Boon (文偉鴻), who created 2014’s smash hit Line Walker <使徒行者>. Four Walls has received positive reviews from netizens and critics, most praising the drama’s action-packed story.

TV King and Queen noise is already abuzz for Ruco Chan and Nancy Wu, who star in Four Walls as a pair of bickering friends. In the latest episode, Ruco and Nancy’s relationship take a positive turn, and viewers are excited to see whether or not their friendship will blossom into a heart-warming romance.

But Ruco and Nancy’s onscreen chemistry wasn’t the only thing that viewers have noticed. Nancy’s portrayal of the “feisty and thirsty” landlady Tiu Lan is earning rave reviews all around, praising that her performance in Four Walls is more worthy for Best Actress than her role in last year’s Ghost of Relativity <鬼痛你OT>.

Nancy’s Bottom Comes On Top

a-fist-within-four-walls-ep-12In Friday’s episode, Tiu Lan teased Kuen Lo (Ruco) for being jealous of her crush on Ngah Lo (Benjamin), and climbed on top of him, shaking her bottom as she hummed her favorite song. Viewers found Nancy’s performance hilarious, also adding that her bottom has taken quite a prominent onscreen role in the series.

Asking Nancy if Ruco had any biological reactions during the scene, Nancy laughed and said, “Not that easily! But it was a fun scene to do. A lot of our interactions were not scripted so it was really fun.”

Mentioning that many of the characters on the show got to show off their figures, the TV Queen said, “I don’t think my figure is that bad either! A lot of Tiu Lan’s clothes are form-fitting. I also worked out a lot for the role. The men in this show are also very fit.”

a-fist-within-four-walls-epRuco also had his own “exposing scene”. Nancy said, “He poked a hole in his boxers and didn’t tell us! We all cracked up when he took off his pants!” (Did you poke him?) “Of course I did! It’s his ‘pat pat’!”

Producer Jazz Boon commented, “I don’t even know why the director liked to give Nancy so many full shots [of her butt]. Nancy will soon make an appearance in her ‘Black Widow’ costume, and I think that would definitely attract many male viewers! She is very fit!” (Did she add patting to her bottom?) “It is all real.”

    Finally an article about this very interesting and fun series! Nancy’s role here is absolutely much more better than her previous ghost series. This series let her to able to show so much more of her talents and body.

    As for Ruco, doesn’t any words, right? He did his best, and facial emotions are entertaining. Only lacking is his 6 packs…. even though he has a hot body. Overall, it’s the best series for me and my family. Keeps waiting for 9.30pm every day for it to screen!

        @killer who is the “money grubbing fame seeker”? ruco? since you said “this guy” in the following sentence. Is he? Dont really follow his news – was at 1 time after “The Other Truth” Seem to me that Nancy Wu fit the bill better (would have thought that mgfs is her if you had not said “this guy”.

        Still prefer Ruco and Tavia in “The Other Truth” – understated character playing which carries, not this slap-stick dramas. Still, this has good review and it seems that ratings is also very good (for tvb at this stage, i.e.)

        @kangaroo Yes I am talking about him. This guy has no passion for acting, he only get into the entertainment industry for the sole purpose of fame, fortune and high status life. He is just a money hungry, fame seeker, all he cares about is attaining fame, wealth, glory and social status. There’s no doubt he would’ve quitted acting long ago,If TVB had never promoted him.

        @killer Quitted long ago ? How long is long?? 15 years without any major role qualify for you? Bcos this guy has been sticking around the industry (fr TVB-ATV-TVB) for almost 18y years now! In fact he is in the same acting class as Ng Kar Lok (the sissy baddie). Please given him some credit unless he has done something so bad to you maybe???

        15 years without any major role qualify for you? You’re wrong even before he re-joined TVB in 2008, he has been given many lead and major supporting roles in ATV.

        Money is a wonderful thing. Isn’t money and recognition what most male seek as ambitions in life? If Ruco is fame seeking and money motivated then that’s a wonderful compliment you are paying him. Shows that he is motivated and ambitious rather than lazing around blaming the world.

    Episode 12 was good…while that part with Nancy hovering over Ruco was hilarious, there was also a very touching moment when she tried acupuncture to prevent the drug from spreading in his body. In short, every episode has been exciting.

    Outstanding performances by Nancy and Ruco and almost all of of the cast. The worst actor of all ‘the younger brother bully’ has been killed off. He was probably picked for the role for his fighting skills rather than his acting. Philip is bareable because he doesn’t have too many lines. Benjamin is also turning out a great performance and as I predicted is rapidly improving to become the next TVB star!

      • jimmyszeto replied:

        @funnlim

        I’m finding the quiet but thoughtful character played by Benjamin quite impressive. While Ruco is playing a typical role with ease, Benjamin has shown major improvement by bringing an extra dimension with his portrayal. Philip is definitely the worst actor in the series in a lead role by a long way. Even though he only has a few lines per scene, it feels like he’s just reading the script rather than acting. He makes up for it though with his action sequences and the great acting of Yuen Qiu supports him well. There’s a handful of award winning performances in this series. Probably the most since War and Beauty.

    Have always been quite neutral to Nancy but becos of this drama, I’ve become quite a fan. Both she and Ruco have great chemistry and it’s nice that for once (with exception.of Tavia perhaps) he is paired with a lead actress who can match his acting and bring out the best in each other. I like Grace in this too. Even Philip for his amazing kungfu. Only person I don’t like is Benjamin.

    Favorite character for me goes to Fung Chun Mei… Carlo Ng. I’ve always enjoyed his acting, sad when he kinda semi-retired. But he’s so wonderful in here! Nailed that creepy transgender characterization. It’s probably because he’s so skinny and his voice is a little octave higher than most men.

    • jimmyszeto replied:

      @coralie

      Agree with that! It’s tough to act in a series and perform action at the same time with no martial arts experience but Carlo along with the rest of the cast have been able to handle it well. Carlo especially because his character is difficult to portray plus Vincent Lam who has been solid in every role since his return to TVB. The action scenes have been directed and edited brilliantly to the point where the fighting deficiencies are hidden well.

    Interesting show with some great kung fu moments but also too many posers. Ruco did well and fought well but his character is unbelievably naive considering how his parents died. But he didn’t see how they died so he can still retain innocence. The women impressed, from yam yam so tragic to is it moon something? The one as Audrey? She was so bubbly without being annoying. Nancy was so interesting when she killed but then the story did a u turn and she became annoyingly loud. But I am still intrigued by her character. However it is grace that impresses the most. Lucky kk in patting her bottom. Sexy mysterious and realistic. I like her big reveal which I know since before she appeared but it was how she reasoned certain stuff which I find the men in this series as particularly useless and it took a woman in high heels to do what they had no guts to do. Too much moral compass for men who did not deserve it.

    Benjamin has the most interesting male character but he is so skinny he didn’t look like kung fu master. He is not handsome enough to have me believe women flock to him. He is so no shape that every time he took off his clothes I cringe. He is not sexy enough to be worthy of super sexy grace. His acting is the worst.

    Phillip is the one I was moat surprised. Despite freaky lips and freakier non moving hair he could act and did very well. Nice body and could fight and looks like a fighter.

    Ruco should have been nga lo. Would love to see him as sexy sensual gentleman fighter. Since he wasn’t that role should have been Raymond wong. If Kenneth could act better I will say Kenneth Ma. Point is Benjamin Yuen is just not nga lo.

    As for the lauded chemistry between Nancy and ruco, sorry can’t see it. Both are competent actors but chemistry? Bobby had much more with her. Nancy character is jist killed by the story u turn. I don’t find it fitting to have her perking her buttocks and what boys after that major tragedy.

    Again tvb can’t decide if they want funny cute drama tragic. So they got everything at the wrong time.

    Give grace wong best actress. She killed it in latest episode when she coldly killed that Drug kingpin and was very convincing in her fighting.

    I also agree the villains did very well. Carlo ng was wonderful and convincing fighter but come on tvb give him costume change pls!!!

    I love this series, Nancy is pretty awesome! I like the chemistry between her and Rocco so far!. I fast forward all the sister Maria and Audrey part, so ZZZzzz, just the worst actress in the series so far, other than that I think everyone else is doing a fair job. @funnlim a lot of kungfu master have similar build to Benjamin’s figure. Ip man was a tiny little guy.

      @ironfingers
      Agree with most of tour comments there. Ruco and Nancy have lots of chemistry as the playfully bickering pair. Benjamin is now much more confident with his acting than in the past and is fast improving. I don’t think Moon Lau is necessary a bad actress but her role here is overly cheerful and optimistic which does not go well with the gloomy mood of the series. This is why I have skipped all the Sister Maria scenes too. Most of the praise for Philip in this comments section have been biased I feel. He is impressive with his physique and action but his acting is miles behind the rest of the cast. He hasn’t had the same acting training as some of the experienced members of the cast but to be fair he’s had over 10 years of experience in acting in movies so we cannot excuse him too much for poor acting.

I think he did deliver with an acceptable amount of dimension, but his character is limited in what emotions he can portray. I don’t want ppl to confuse his character with his acting abilities. Ppl had the same opinion about Moses in that ghost drama that won Nancy Wu her queen title, but Moses is not a wooden actor. He’s proven himself time and time again as a solid actor with a good range of acting skills. His roles, on the other hand, has been limited. His portrayal of that nerdy guy in that drama received a lot of criticism, but ppl should understand that that’s his personality in the drama. He’s supposed to be like that. Similarly, Philip Ng is also portraying a wooden type of guy, exactly as Moon described him. I find him very good for a TV newcomer and I wish TVB would hire him for more roles so we can see if he’s just a fluke or someone with real acting potential.

        I actually quite like Philip although I think everyone else’s acting has been far superior to his. Apart from acting talent TVB also need actors who are skilled in other areas and he is definitely a fresh talent. Hopefully it’s not a one off drama for him. Lots of martial artists have started their acting careers slowly but have managed to make a breakthrough. It is still possible for him to make top dollar in the future.

        @coralie Philip is doing a good job up till now…he is supposed to be serious and loyal…the part when Moon’s character was dressing his wound was touching. You can see he is starting to soften towards her.

        @jimmyszeto Philip is much more worse than being woody. He is tolerable in the series cause there are many more good actors actresses to cover up for him. His mum in the series is great too. His acting is bad is not because his role is cool. It’s just plain reason that he can’t act…..

        @jimmyszeto nancy and ruco are ok as a bickering pair but not as a couple. there isn’t a wee bit of chemistry towards the end when ruco hugged her.

        @janet72 I have to disagree. There’s plenty of chemistry betw the 2. Nancy did ok in that hug scene cos she’s not supposed to fall in love with Ruco’s character yet. The pat she gave him on his arm demonstrated that she only treated him as a friend, whereas we can see that Ruco’s character is starting to have some feelings for her.

        Yes, plenty of chemistry between Ruco and Nancy so far. Not a couple yet so can’t really claim that they have no chemistry as a couple. Good actors and actresses always bring some chemistry. It’s a matter of time.

    Moon Lau has also been adorable in this drama! I really enjoy her antics and perky spunk with an optimistic determination. I didn’t think she was that great in her debut (I think?) as one of the leading ladies in 4 Girls 1 Bar, but she’s been increasingly improving and I must say that out of the group in that drama, she’s winning them by a landslide.

    While I thought I would be bored by yet another spoiled brat and goody two-shoe character built by TVB, Moon has changed my negative and bored impression by leaps and bounds. I hope she stays that way. Whoever wrote her in the script really did her a favor. Either that or she’s just that good.

    Off topic, but I hate the yanyan arc. I am extremely disappointed by the company for once again throwing rape in there for the sole purpose of plot device and to highlight another character’s change rather than giving more respect to the atrocity of the crime. I get that this isn’t the purpose of the drama – no one wants to broach this topic, but it seemed all they wanted was to use this to increase ratings. It’s just ugh

      @coralie I agree re Moon Lau! She’s done so well in this drama, I think she deserves Most Improved over Sisley Choi.

      @coralie I think the poor rape scene is to portray how a jerk her father is. I am sure he still have some scene in coming episodes. He is the one that makes the rape scene possible.

    It has been a while since TVB is producing something that is worth catching. Really like this drama, A fist within four walls and of course Ruco. It would be even better if Ruco can play a more serious and composed character in this drama. Anyway, will always root and support him in whatever roles he play.

      @hannah @rcel @dramadrama Sick and tired of hearing about this money grubbing fame seeker on the news all the time. This guy is way overexposed and overrated, he should just look elsewhere to earn a living but not in entertainment industry.

      @hannah every episode is interesting. in general, the casts of every character is really good! Philip as the serious son and the relationship with 泰婆 is heart-warming.

      Still feel that Benjamin and Ruco’s roles should be swopped.
      Moon as the spunky daughter is cute without making viewers cringe. If Grace Chan had acted, I think many of us will cry!

    So much love for this drama from all posters here. This is definitely one of the best dramas this year. Every episode leaves you hungry for more. Some surprises in terms of acting chops from Carlo and Grace.

    Grace is definitely a shining star in this drama. On Instagram, she said that she purposely went to watch the filming of the child version of her character so she can understand her grown-up character even more. This shows that Grace takes her acting seriously and takes her role to heart. I’m starting to be a big fan of her haha
