Actress James King was almost left blinded by some of the death-defying stunts on new action adventure Bulletproof Monk.

The sexy star appears alongside Chow Yun-Fat and Victoria Smurfit in the kung-fu flick.

And she admits some of the martial arts scenes were a little too realistic.

King explains, "Once Victoria whipped out her baton to hit me and came this close to impaling my eye. The scene took three 15-hour days of fighting, hair-pulling, being thrown into walls, shoving, punching, kicking and running up the wall repeatedly then jumping off doing back-spinning kicks."
