His girlfriend, Qiu Di, who's been unaware of Sheng's profession, wants to see him quit. Jun pursues the gang tirelessly, sometimes ignoring police protocols. Zah's trial approaches, witnesses are in danger, and a showdown is inevitable. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Donnie Yen originally planned to have a much larger fight scene at the driving range, which would involve a longer brawl between the two gangs followed by his character showing up to stop it. The scene was cut down due to lack of funds and the inability to get permission to shoot additional scenes at the location. See more »

Goofs

When the man is shot on the roof of the parking structure, even though the movie depicts events in 1997, there is a modern silver BMW 5-series parked next to the victim's car. It is a 2004-2007 (pre January 2007 facelift) model. See more »

One of the best films to come out in a long time
13 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flashpoint is a beautifully shot film that moves a long at a fast pace. I was never much of a Donnie Yen fan but I have been converted to one after seeing this film. Hollywood needs to bring him back, at least as an action choreographer. The action scenes in this film are far more sophisticated than anything Hollywood is doing.

Wilson Yip did an amazing job as director. It's a shame this didn't get a U.S. theatrical release. If Hollywood is smart, they will recruit him.

Bingbing Fan is a beauty that should also be brought to Hollywood.

Flashpoint doesn't break new ground in terms of it being a typical cops and gangsters flick, but it is as good as any of them.

The fights are excellent and realistic.

Flashpoint is highly recommended for HK movie fans.
