Movie Reviews

Donnie times two!
nicknamefree | brooklyn, n.y. United States | 09/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This has got to be the best value for money on Amazon!
Two of Donnie's greatest films for one price.
Circus Kids is in English version,and High Voltage is in the original Chinese language(much better that way!).
High Voltage is especially good in the action and story line.Buying this DVD is a no brainer!"
The worst Donnie Yen 2-pack imaginable

"HIGH VOLTAGE-

This is one of the worst ripoffs of Hard Boiled I have ever seen. Donnie Yen plays the reckless cop and he is after the man who killed his wife. The story is horrible. The cops travel to the Phillipines to find the killer of one of their informants. When they get there Donnie finds the guy who killed his wife and looks to take revenge. Roy Cheung is always good as a villian and he does a fine job here. The musclebound Frankie Chin plays a henchman, and for some reason Frankie Chin's character just disappears at the end of the movie with no explanation.

The action was a big disappointment. The gunplay is some of the worst I have ever seen and there is only one good fight scene. The fight in the bar is the only one I liked and it is also the hardest fight to see because of the terrible lighting. The final fight is trash. This movie is highly not recommended.

2/5

Picture quality is a bit above average.


CIRCUS KID-

Donnie yen only has a small part in this and Yuen Biao plays the lead. Wu Ma runs a circus and Yuen Biao is his top performer. Because of war going on they have to close the circus. David Lam (Jackie Chan's Project A2) plays a clown who becomes a drug addict and ends up getting killed. Now the circus goes to take revenge on drug smugglers.

The movie basically comes down to 2 main fight scenes. Yuen Biao takes on Ken Lo and Donnie Yen fights Bey Logan. The Yuen Biao fight starts out bad but gets a lot better once Ken Lo starts kicking. Then we have Donnie Yen vs. Bey Logan. This is one of the worst fight scenes ever filmed and I kid you not, it is worse than their fight in the Fist of Fury TV series from 2001. I don't think I have ever seen a worse Donnie Yen fight.

2/5

Picture quality is bad but watchable.
