Fists fly while Hong Kong burns
7 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There's smashing glass a-plenty in this Hong Kong action flick that's almost one long running battle between a criminal gang and a trio of upstanding cops. It's a film in which the plotting is completely tired and predictable, pitting the flawed-but-human good guys against an array of almost superhuman and sadistic crims in a variety of arresting chases, shoot-outs and martial arts sequences.

Such stories are by-the-by when it comes to Chinese action cinema. These films fall or stand on their action, and in that respect INVISIBLE TARGET doesn't disappoint. There are some outstanding free-running sequences to tie it in with European fare like DISTRICT 13, excellent choreography in the various combat scenes and plenty of explosive destruction. In many ways the action's a throwback to Hong Kong cinema of the 1980s, with an emphasis on the destruction of scenery and props and in particular glass.

Director Benny Chan delivered the goods in 2004's NEW POLICE STORY and he does so again with the spectacular stuff on display here. Inbetween, the dialogue is fairly leaden and the pacing slow as we watch more tired stuff about corrupt cops and villainous plots. Nicholas Tse and Shawn Yue can do this type of stuff in their sleep: they play one dimensional characters but are great when it comes to fighting, and the same can be said of Wu Jing's ultra-villain. Jackie Chan's lad Jaycee is given plenty of emoting which is slightly tiresome when contrasted with the otherwise great action. INVISIBLE TARGET gets 1/10 for its storyline and 10/10 for the fights.
