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.
- 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?
- 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.
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!
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!
If you like a martial arts movie with a good story line, put your money away. Two good cops undercover. Partner is hurt. Other cop beats up bad guys single handedly, never once thinking of calling backup. That's it in a nutshell.
So there it is. If you watch martial arts movies for the fight scenes, you can't go wrong.
If you watch martial arts films but would struggle without a story, go buy something else. Perhaps a nice hat, or a tshirt that says 'Kapooow'.
