The movie that we are bringing to you is called FlashPoint. The film starred Donnie Yen, who was also the movies matial arts choreographer. Most people will recognize him from American Titles such as Iron Monkey, Blade 2 and Hero
This movie is one of his more unique choreographed films because he introduces alot of mixed martial arts. He first introduced some mixed martial arts in to the cop film “SPL” (Sha Po Lang or Killzone (American Title)) however you see alot more of that sweet action here. When asked in an interview about the mixed martial arts he stated:
“ ….Mixed martial arts, a combat sport that has become popular in the West in the recent years, is an effective fighting system that employs a vast array of different martial arts techniques. Each contestant possesses a variety of martial arts techniques such as Jujitsu, boxing, Muay Thai, wrestling, etc. I believe this is the most authentic type of combat. I have been researching, studying and learning it……….”
The Basic plot synopsis has been stated as follows: The man; Jun Ma, Detective Sergeant, Serious Crimes Unit. Fast, precise and brutal - Jun detests crime and his life long nemeses are a Vietnamese gang of three brothers - eldest brother Archer, the bully; second brother Tony, the cool calculator; youngest brother Tiger, the fighter.
