Storyline

The plot basically revolves around Fei, White and Fong, 3 youngsters who are unknowingly related and are carrying pendants that are actually parts of a map which leads to the legendary 'Holy Wall' treasure. After a ruthless businessman and triad boss called Duanmu (Collin Chou) tracks them down, he sends in the goons to kidnap and force them to reveal the secret location of the artifact. Fortunately, their paths cross with those of nice guy cops Edge and his crazy partner Lin Dan (Donnie Yen), who take it upon themselves to protect the kids and to find the legendary loot before it falls into the clutches of evil.

Donnie Strikes again
30 June 2008 | by scruba_1See all my reviews

If you know Donnie Yen & don't know this film I highly recommend you go out and source a copy. This has some brilliant fight scenes and the usual campy goof scenes of early Donnie films and is a must have for martial arts film fans. Donnie's role is small, yet is pivotal, and he's the one who gets to battle head villain Collin Chou at the end. I think this is the only time the 2 of them get to punch on previous to 'Flash Point'. The plot concerns three teenagers, each holding a piece of jade which combine to form the key to treasure. Donnie is his regular loose-cannon policeman.The fight with Billy Chow is short, but great, as expected.

In short, if you're after a kick ass old Hong Kong (tho this is Taiwanese) style flick, chuck on your screen.
