Critic Reviews for Saat po long (S.P.L.) (Kill Zone)
There's about 10 minutes of goodness here, and worth seeing if only for those moments.
The film's signature pieces are its fight scenes, but Yip works best in the quieter moments.
IRON MONKEY star Donnie Yen. MARTIAL LAW star Sammo Hung. If him, and him...If they fighted...Whowouldwin?
Audience Reviews for Saat po long (S.P.L.) (Kill Zone)
Wilson Yip puts together a great Hong Kong crime drama with S.P.L..
Despite barely reaching 90 minutes, the film effectively uses the time wisely and efficiently. The story itself isn't exactly extravagant; however, the storytelling is on the mark. The cinematography is thought-out and the protagonist characters, while performing some questionable deeds, are still likable over the villains.
This isn't a martial arts movie per se; however the action isn't comprised of just cops shooting robbers. There is major emphasis on close combat including knives and hand to hand combat. There are bits and pieces throughout most of the film, but the final act is where it all happens. Fortunately, when it happens, it really does happen. The choreography is superb and that leads to visually pleasing action sequences.
Donnie Yen is one of the more notable faces, and while he does have a major role, Simon Yam also shares the spotlight as a lead character. Sammo Hung, along with Yen, puts up a good performance alongside his showcasing of martial arts.
S.P.L. excels all around and when all is said and done it is a highly recommendable film.
donnie yen against sammo hung, while not as anticipated as chan vs li and not nearly as epic, was still very fun to watch. its great to see two kung fu icons battle it out. the film featured some slick images through great camera work and solid editing choices, but the script was weak, the story choppy, and the action sequences mostly average until the end of the film. overall this is a fun movie but misses out on opportunities to be great.
