Product Description

Action thriller about a loose-cannon cop on the trail of three drug-dealing brothers. For years, Detective Sergeant Ma Jun (Donnie Yen) has been working on a case involving three Vietnamese brothers - Archer (Lui Leung-Wai), Tony (Collin Chou) and Tiger (Xing Yu). Ma has planted a mole, his partner Wilson (Louis Koo), to infiltrate the gang and Wilson has managed to gain the trio's trust and respect. But during a police sting operation, Tony and Tiger discover Wilson's identity, with Archer being arrested by police. The two brothers vow to save Archer by destroying evidence and killing all police officials and witnesses involved in the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flashpoint 20 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
Forget the artsy fartsy wire-fu movies so popular today and consider this for your collection. Flashpoint is a hard hitting Hong Kong movie starring Donnie Yen and Collin Chou (Seraph in the Matrix Sequels) as cop and criminal. Donnie being the Cop and Collin being the criminal. This being a martial arts action flick and all, you'll not need me to explain the rest. Needless to say this movie contains many fights.

First lets get the cons out of the way. Like many chinese films this is a little too melodramatic at times. You know the score, somebody dies, sad music, emotions run high, revenge enseus blah blah blah. These movies always have uncomfortably cheesy sad scenes. The dialogue (no doubt partly due to subtitles) is, as usual, quite unsubtle. We can forgive these things because the Chinese seem to have a knack for making every frame of a movie completely stunning to look at. In this sense, the rest of the world are playing catch up. Flashpoint has some stunning views of the sprawling Hong Kong.

Speeking of sprawling, lets get to the important bit. The fights. You should be well aware that Donnie Yen is no joke when it comes to fisticuffs. He's the real deal. The fights in this movie rank among the best. In fact the final fight scene in this movie is second only to Bruce Lee's duel with Kareem Abdul Jabar (I'm talking about the full fight which can only be seen in Bruce Lee - A Warriors Journey which you'll find on Enter The Dragon - Special Edition). Like that epic brawl, this fight contains not just your usual Chinese mentalism but also moves your very likely to see in a real match. Moves like the triangle choke (my fave), arm bar, german suplex, Thai clinch, even down to the essential tool, the sprawl. If you're a fan of martial arts flicks and of mma then this is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bang Bang Chicken! 26 Dec 2012
Format:DVD
A 90's Hong Kong cop pulls a sweaty when his undercover partner gets busted by a vicious gang of vietnamese loonies, then he gets even crosser when they explode his chicken supper near him. . . the fiends!
Thoroughly enjoyable kung fu mayhem with Donnie Yen as the loose canon hero detective (again), that tears up the rule book and gives the baddies a lesson in police public relations they'll never forget. Anyone affiliated with Yen's early stuff (In The Line Of Duty etc) will be pleasantly surprised as the movies themes of revenge and justice are very old school, the bonecrunching kung fu however, has gone up a notch, with some tasty mixed martial arts and toilet shattering fisticuffs. Ok it has a bit of a slow 30min period (of inevitable melodrama) but all in all the action and fights are often enough and very entertaining.
Infact if you're reading this review, you probably are already interested in/enjoy HK martial arts movies, if thats the case, just get it and watch it, coz i doubt you'll be disappointed..
I got this for christmas, watched it that evening and prefered it to Kill Zone, but then again, what do i know!

4.0 out of 5 stars FU 4 U REVIEW #8: FLASHPOINT 27 Feb 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here's my quick little review of Flashpoint Starring Donnie Yen - hope it's helpful!

THE GOOD:
- Awesome, and often, full contact fights!
- Some nice tense build ups that are always paid off explosively, if not too surprisingly.
- The last fight is pure, crunchy, magnificently choreographed, violence.
- Some real brutal stuff in here, at times a little more shocking than I was expecting - but I like being surprised. What it lacked in originality of story it made up for in heavy thumps and body shattering carnage.
- Back to basics martial arts action mixed perfectly with cool as a cucumber gunplay.
- The mixed martial arts used by Donnie Yen in this film are absolutely stunning. He bounds around the screen with blazing gusto, and slithers round the bad guys like a boa constrictor in full on `death grip' mode. Make no mistake this is serious athleticism like you read about.
- Suitable extras.
- Did I mention Donnie is a complete beast in this?

THE BAD:
- Why they kept popping up above the long grass to shoot at each other in the big gunfight scene is beyond me. Surely they could have just shot through the grass? I dunno seemed a big silly to me.
- Hardly a head scratcher of a story: it's a pretty much straight forward, tension building, revenge yarn with suitably nutty bad guys who you'll be praying to greet the feet(oh and they do!) before the whole thing is over. However this is not really a bad point unless you go in expecting haute cinema.

THE CONCLUSION:
In many ways a straight forward action revenge flick but also, in many ways, a rip-roaring return to the old school. What you basically get here is pure, untainted, martial arts by a man who knows exactly what he's doing, a well paced, tension filled, action drenched, script that thunders along and a set of characters that are easy to get on board with and cheer along, or abhor and hiss at. Buy it now and enjoy!

Format:DVD
Although containing an end sequence which is without doubt one of the best one-on-one fight scenes committed to film in recent years, the movie as a whole suffers from a lack of action, an unremarkable storyline and an overwhelming sense of depression. Donnie Yen plays the hard-boiled cop role convincingly and the rest of the cast don't dissapoint either, it's just not that gripping a plot to invest in. There's a good "Unforgiven" style scene that is quite powerful where one second you are shouting for the hero but in the next minute wishing he would stop. Being midway through the film at this point however - and this act of no great importance in regards to the last showdown - it doesn't really add that much to the whole peice, which is a shame.
For martial art movie fans this will prove a bore, albeit with a blistering end fight scene. As a film in its own right it is average at best. If you want to watch a really good Hong Kong cop thriller/drama then go for "Infernal Affairs". If however you want to watch a good, fast paced martial arts movie look elsewhere.

Donnie Yen has set new standard for Martial Arts Movies, he is much better than Hollywood, the fact that he turned down the role in Expendables 2 proves this.
