Plot: SPL aka Saat Po Long/Sha Po Lang aka Kill Zone is the best Hong Kong actioner in years, featuring superb performances from Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung and Simon Yam and some seriously vicious I'm-not-showing-off-I-really-want-to-kill-you fight scenes.

A successful serious crime investigation police unit, headed by articulate senior detective Chan (Simon Yam), tackles crime with three other detectives from different backgrounds. Martial arts expert Ma (Donnie Yen) is set to take over as head of the unit, replacing Chan who wants to have an early retirement. Ma is determined to put things right.

Featured reviews for

Kill Zone, S.P.L.
LoveHKfilm.com, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/spl.htm
«SPL is a stylish return to HK-style grim-n-gritty action noir and one welcome motion picture. Nothing new really happens here, but that's just fine. Easily the best Hong Kong action film of the year.»
Cinedie Asie, translated by Carla Graoa source: http://www.asia.cinedie.com/en/spl.htm
«Yip Wai-chun manages thus a good balance between action and drama. We appreciate the development of a good story, whose main concerns are the obstacles risen between father and son, and the well choreographed action with some intense and brutal moments, quite rare in the more recent Hong Kong cinema.»
Twitch, by Mack source: http://twitchfilm.net/archives/003567.html
«SPL is one of the best movies to ever come out of Hong Kong. What it has done is reset the bar on quality and expression in HK film that has been sorely missed since the late 90s.»
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2005/11/spl.html
«On the whole, the movie works, up till the supposed ending which put me off, and where the final "hurrah" brings it down a little. It has many stylized moments accompanied with an upbeat soundtrack, but it's substance over style that matters sometimes.»
