Flash Point (2007)
Critic Consensus: Flash Point features some nice mindless martial-arts action, but too much of the already thin story treads familiar ground.

Critic Reviews for Flash Point
Yen has developed a recent passion for mixed martial arts, and his more traditional punches and flying kicks are supplemented by some close-quarters Muay Thai kicks and even some jujitsu submission holds. Ultimate Fighting Championship fans will be happy.
Flash Point comes loaded with cliches and immediately starts blasting them in every direction.
Not even a choice ass-whupping can make up for the plodding familiarity that precedes it.
Flash Point plays like the last hurrah of a criminal underclass facing the inevitable shrinking of its bottom line.
Audience Reviews for Flash Point
Superb HK action film with martial arts superstar Donnie Yen and it boasts some incredible action sequences with explosive hard hitting fight combinations. Mixing many styles, Yen has created some extraordinary fight scenes for this movie. The camera-work is spot on and captures the intensity and struggle of the combat with the close up shots, whilst letting us see the incredible display of martial arts fighting with the longer shots.
a slight step up from kill zone for me as yip and yen come back together for another decent martial arts cop drama. the story was serviceable at best, but the film was massively entertaining and the fight sequences were solid.
Like SPL, it could have been a lot better, seems they are just stretching a very simple story way more than they should. If you really can't write a story like Infernal Affairs then just don't try it, just go for the action. That said, the final fight between Donnie and Collin should be the new standard that every figthing movie should follow from now on.
