Martial arts sensation, Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Hero, Shanghai Knights) stars in this stunning new generation action-thriller from the team that brought you Ip Man, Flashpoint and Dragon Tiger Gate. Behind the dark shadows of Hong Kongs triad underworld, one man, Wong Po (Sammo Hung), rules with an iron fist. After years of dedicated service, veteran detective Chan (Simon Yam) finally puts him behind bars. However, on the eve of his trial, Po orchestrates the execution of the prosecuting attorney from his jail-cell, and walks away as a free man. Having been diagnosed with terminal cancer, Chan persuades his men to take the law into their own hands in a last desperate attempt to bring their arch-nemesis to justice. Ma Kwun (Donnie Yen), a detective inspector with a hard-as-nails reputation, begins to uncover their illegal methods and a bloody confrontation ensues. However, when Pos most deadly assassin (Wu Jing) begins to dispatch Chans team with lethal efficiency, he is compelled to join forces with Ma to take down the greatest criminal empire of their generation. Culminating in the long-awaited showdown between action legends Sammo Hung and Donnie Yen, Kill Zone combines knife-edge suspense and electrifying full-contact fight sequences to deliver a thrill-a-minute spectacular that s in a class of its own!

'Kill Zone' is a martial arts crime-action movie, which had a theatrical release in Hong Kong in 2005 and Direct-to-DVD releases both in the UK and America. On its release, the movie was a box-office hit and critically acclaimed, hailed as a return to the classics of Hong Kong action cinema.

The lead actors in the movie are as follows, Sammo Hung (starred in Wheels on Meals, Project A & Dragons Forever), Donnie Yen (starred in Ip Man, Flashpoint & Dragon Tiger Gate) and Simon Yam (starred in Election 1 and 2).

The movie is known in Hong Kong as 'SPL: Sha Po Lang', which is short for three stars in Chinese astrology. 'Sha' means Seven Killings and is the Power Star referring to Sammo Hung, 'Po' means Army Breaker and is the Ruinous Star referring to Donnie Yen and 'Lang' means Greedy Wolf and is the Flirting Star referring to Simon Yam.

The movie tells the story of Detective Chan (Simon Yam) who resorts to illegal methods to bring down Wong Po (Sammo Hung) who is a fierce triad boss. During this time Detective Ma Kwun (Donnie Yen) joins Chan's squad as a replacement for Chan who is retiring soon.

'Kill Zone' has a straight forward story that we as an audience have seen so many times before, this however is a flaw that does not take away anything from this entertainer. What makes this movie different is the jaw-dropping action sequences, slick camera work, cool background music and the tense face-off between the heavyweights of Hong Kong cinema, Hung and Yen. The movie is also character driven when it needs to be and adds a touch of emotion, making it more than an action feature.

The first half of the movie is all about the perfect build up of tension between the good guys and the bad guys.

After some excess hyping of the film (more well known as "Sha Po Lang") I thought that we are going to get a movie that has some subtle Hong Kong 'hokey' feel to it and some cool fights. I was quite right.

The plot in Kill zone is gritty and has almost hauntingly isolated feel about it; while there is enough character development here, I felt that it wasn't the main point in the film. In the end, it's your less ordinary cop movie with some great american night cinematography (I love it) and some cool plot twists. Simon Yam is a great actor and seeing him here just act was a nice move. Music fitted the mood very well as well. A watchable movie in it's own right, but nothing I'd watch up from scratch anyday.

Then the action. Much of this was hyped by it's collaboration with action aficionados/veterans like Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung and a wushu protege Wu Jing (aka Jackie Wu). There is not a lot of it, but what's there is spectacular. Some short showcases from ever so cool Donnie Yen are a treat as always, yet I think that it's the bad guys that still manage to steal the show somewhat; Sammo has some real charisma here and he can move very well. Wu Jin is a tour de force with his trusty killer knife. A great part from him as well as a psychopathic killer.

The real beef comes towards the end, when Donnie and Wu Jin duke it out at an alley at night. Donnie swings a metal baton against Wu Jin and it's a four minute spectacle that has to be seen to be believed. A much better fight than almost anything Tony Jaa's newer films have in terms of intricate choreography. Everything is excellent from editing to camerawork. One of the best and most mesmerizing fight scenes of the decade by far.

If you're into lightning fast martial arts combined with organized crime fighting, this one is sure to entertain you. You can't help marvelling over the complex fighting scenes and how they were done. This movie does not break any ground story-wise though, it's pretty run-of the mill in that regard. Yet, there is definitely enough story there to support the martial arts wizardry, and the actors are just impressive, whether they speak or are eloquently silent.

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 [2006] [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.

Enjoy
