• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Andrzej Bartkowiak is a Polish cinematographer and film director.

He initially was just a cinematographer, serving as such for films including The Verdict, Terms of Endearment, Speed, Species, Dante's Peak and Lethal Weapon 4, and is a member of the American Society of Cinematographers. In the 2000s, however, he started trying his hand at directing. His films have all been mediocre (at best) action films; of which consensus seems to hold to have gotten progressively worse over time. Whereas Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and Cradle 2 the Grave are watchable action films, his latest efforts, Doom and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li are both video game adaptions that effectively jetison everything that made the games good and are thus rendered as forgettable dreck.

His next film is titled Dark Deal, and is slated to be released in 2011.

The films he has directed:
