Well if you see the cover you'll think 'Wow! Donnie Yen versus Sammo Hung!' and yes, they do have quite an amazing fight at the climax of the movie. If you're thinking 'Who the hell is Sammo Hung?' then shame on you! He is the big brother of 3 friends who trained together at the Beijing Opera, all going on to movie careers in Hong Kong cinema. You may have heard of the middle one - his name is Jackie Chan. The youngest was Yuen Biao and if you don't know who he is, check out Prodigal Son [DVD] [1983
] or if you want to see all three together try and get hold of Dragons Forever
- anyway, back to this movie.
The fighting style is a fairly modern blend of traditional kung fu with some ground fighting and even wrestling moves thrown in - this is after all the age of mixed martial arts. Aside from the flawless fight scenes the movie has a strong plot about the dangers of corruption.
Jacky Wu Jing of the movie Fatal Contact  [DVD
] steals a few of the scenes playing an assassin working for Sammo Hung's Big Boss character. All in all, I found it to be a well fleshed out action film with a good plot and decent pacing. I only take a star off because there could have been a tiny bit more action but you won't have time to get bored. Its pretty high octane stuff.
