Huang Jianxin is the current chair of the Directors' Guild of China. One of the most influential directors from China's Fifth Generation, he has been recognized for his remarkable achievements in directing, scriptwriting, producing, and film theory. As early as 1994, Huang Jianxin has been entered into the Cambridge Biographical Encyclopedia. In 2005, during the national celebration of the Centennial of Chinese Cinema, the Central Chinese Government honored Huang for his "Outstanding Contributions to the Film Arts".

In 1986, Huang's directorial debut Black Cannon Incident captured the attention of the entire film world. Subsequent works such as Stand Up, Don't Bend Over (1992), Back to Back, Face to Face (1994), Surveillance (1997), Marriage Certificate (2001) and Gimme Kudos (2004) cemented his reputation as one to watch for at many prestigious international film festivals. Huang's films have garnered over sixty major local and international awards, including top prizes at film festivals held in Tokyo, Fukuoka and Rotterdam. His films were listed three time on HKIFF's Ten Best Chinese Language Films of the Year, voted for Film of Merits from Mainland China twice in Taiwan, and received several Golden Rooster Awards. He was personally honored with Golden Rooster Award for Best Director. In addition, Black Cannon Incident and Back to Back, Face to Face were included in the list of 100 Most Powerful Chinese Language Films of the 20th Century by Asia Weekly.

The films produced by Huang have also received acclaim from audiences and critics alike. Some of the notable productions include Hollywood's mega-blockbuster The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) and multiple Best Picture award-winner, Peter Chan Ho-sun's The Warlords (2007). Huang has also served as a consultant for several international co-productions, including Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill (2002).

Highly regarded by film communities around the world, the veteran filmmaker has been invited to serve as a jury member at the international film festivals in Cairo, Fukuoka, and Pyongyang, as well as China's Golden Rooster Awards and the Asian Film Awards.

In 2009, Huang, along with Peter Chan Ho-sun and Bona International, set up the new company Cinema Popular. Bodyguards and Assassins is its first production.
