Kill zone... Wow... Aptly named. Lots of fast paced action, interesting storyline (not super original but still good). My only criticism is why must Chinese movies have such depressing endings?! People like happy endings.

I enjoyed the editing and how it was written. Little details made it good. Plus the action was pretty great. The story was a bit confusing here and there but overall it was an interesting take on hero cop villain, blurring the lines between good and evil. A little over the top though. But decent. Except the ending. I'm not sure if that was stupid or hilarious.

It can be a bit slow paced but it still has some of the best fight scenes I've ever seen.

It has a few excellent fight scenes, but the rest of the movie is painfully cheesy and melodramatic. It could have benefited from a couple more fight scenes and less tedious sentimentality. The showdown between Sammo Hung and Donny Yen at the films finale is well worth putting up without an hours worth of cheesy crime drama, though.

Na típica tendência do cinema coreano, SPL é um drama policial (com ênfase no drama) que pode em momentos parecer demasiado preocupado com as emoções do que propriamente com o desenrolar dos acontecimentos. Embora essa escolha abrande o ritmo, conseguimos aprofundar os caráteres distintos das personagens e o filme conclui com um terceiro ato de meter inveja a muitos títulos do género.

This movie popped my cherry for the genre. I'll never forget it. Who could ever forget Yen vs Wu Jing. Legendary on screen combat.

Sha Po Lang is an pretty amazing action film. Lots of convincing fight scenes, so pretty good tension...only let down by the simple plot. But entertaining for sure!

One of the best kung fu flicks I have ever seen, this movie perfectly blended fight scenes and plot in a movie that can only be described as amazing.

Gave this film a second look this afternoon after purchasing it, and it holds up really well on the second viewing. Now after a third viewing several months later, I hadda dial down my initial enthusiasm, but it's still an amazingly solid film.

A wonderfully layered police drama that sports some of the best martial arts I've seen in quite some time.

Sammo Hung, Donnie Yen and Simon Yam are amazing to watch and the final showdown between Hung and Yen is not to be missed.

Si S.P.L. demarre lentement, le film monte en puissance au fil du temps, grace a la mise en scene tres efficace de Wilson Yip, qui est aussi doue sur les scenes d'exposition que sur les combats, d'une sauvagerie impressionnante. Sammo Hung campe un mechant d'anthologie, tandis que Donnie Yen et Simon Yam sont excellents, dans le camp des policiers. Il est alors dommage que la partition de Chan Kwong Wing soit aussi fade, alors qu'il est clairement capable de mieux.

The Action Choreography by Donnie Yen is amazing. This movie tells what Saat po long means.

It's about time a really good action movie comes out that does not need to rely on CG(Computer Graphics)to make the action look good. It's really good to see Sammo Hung back in a good movie with real fighters again. All I can say about Donnie Yen is that he's doing a fine job as an action director.

'Kill Zone' is a interesting watch, with outstanding action scenes in it. Watch it if you enjoy watching films that have a story with mind-blowing action scenes. Go for it!

Dramatic Crime Thriller, Which See's Sammo Hung & Donnie Yen Go Head To Head In A Violent & Dramatic Showdown. An Ailing Cop (Simon Yam), Has A Relentless Determination To Do Away With An Untouchable Gangster (Sammo Hung), Leads Him To Employ A Series Of Unethical Tactics, Which Include Involving A Tough As Nails Cop (Donnie Yen), Together The Two Decide To Go After The Gangster The Dirty Way. A Nicely Made Crime Thriller, Which Tends To Play With The Viewers Emotions At Some Parts. Wonderful Fight Choreography And Well Acted. The Director Excels In The Non-Action Scenes Better Than That Of The Action Sequences
½ March 6, 2013
An unorthodox police thriller with a good amount of violence to please.
