Via the boys over at Donnie Yen’s US site (link), here is your look at Donnie Yen’s upcoming “Flash Point”, another hard-hitting action/crime film in the style of “Sha Po Lang” (or better known by its International title of “Killzone”). The film stars Donnie Yen as a cop determined to put a trio of Triad brothers out of business; to achieve this end, he sends in a mole (Louis Koo), but that’s when the fun really starts. If you head over to the movie’s official site here, you’ll get a synopsis that, if I’m not mistaken, reveals about 90% of the movie’s plot (or thereabouts). Basically, everything up until, “This guy dies, that guy dies, and this guy lives” part.

“Flash Point” stars Donnie Yen, Louis Koo, Collin Chou, and Bingbing Fan, and is directed by Wilson Yip (“Dragon Tiger Gate”), a man who knows when to direct and when to hand the reins over to Yen.
The film is scheduled for a July 2007 release in Hong Kong. No word on an International release, although Variety reports that “Flash Point” has been sold to Distant Horizon for North American distribution.
Here’s a violent fistfight-a-second trailer for the movie:
