Actor Chow Yun-Fat is sick of being cast in action films involving gunplay and complains he has been typecast.

Yun-Fat claims Hollywood is fixated by his on-screen action battles, showcased in John Woo's movies A Better Tomorrow and Hard Boiled.

He moans, "I'm unlucky. Nobody understands me. But I can wait. I hope someone who understands me will come along.

"Foreigners look me up because of John Woo's movies, only because they see that my gun scenes are good."
