Donnie Yen vs. Collin Chou: Flashpoint (2007)

I think most of us can agree that Flashpoint is one of Donnie Yen’s very best movies; this is an incredible fight scene that hurts just by watching it.

The choreography is jaw-dropping and apparently Donnie wanted to make this scene as real as possible by having he and Chou actually fighting each other.

In this scene they used mixed martial arts, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Collin Chou and Donnie Yen have both said it was one of the most painful fights they’ve ever done. It certainly looks it and is one of the many highlights of this classic martial arts flick.
