Finally, a return to the eighties glory days! Gritty action! No popstars! And a plot where IT ALL GOES TO HELL!– LOveHKfilmreviews..
Bayangkan ini… Simon Yam sebagai Inspektor Chan, seorang polis dengan dendam dan kemarahan, Sammo Hung yang chubby, we longed to see adalah ketua mob Po, kingpin yang ganas gila, penuh plot, licik dan tak pedulikan sesiapa. Then datang Donnie Yen we longed to see too, joined jabatan polis bersama Simon untuk nailed the kingpin down.
Di tengah konflik dan pertentangan antara keduanya (Chan- Po) ialah keluarga masing- masing, dan kawan sepasukan. Di sinilah Wilson Yip bermain dengan plot, dramatik, naratif, emosi dan sumbatkan semuanya dengan aksi kung Fu yang menarik.
Skill filem 80-an (padat aksi dan keganasan) dan motion ala 90-an (slow, dramatik, sequence gambar perlahan untuk mewujudkan mood dan tension..) adalah wajah filem ini.
Mungkin tak janjikan idea baru- konsep good cop, bad cop.. macam Infernal Affair , tapi Sha po Lang tak pulak nak intend nak bg penonton pening dengan plot yang tricky macam filem aku baru sebut tadi.
Bolehlah kita bergembira semula setelah menyampah dengan Nicholas Tze, Ekin Cheng dan seberapa ramai superstar Hong Kong yang mementingkan rupa ajer.. :hoye:
Sedap tengok kung fu dan wrestle Yen membelasah taiko Hung… menyelerakan!! Dan heii.. Wu Jing pun ada kat sini…
A must see.. mark my word!!
hm, keluar kat wayang sini tak ?
apeda soklan kau.. da dodok dalam Land of DVDs.. Malaysia Buleh pun lagi mau tanya soklan mcm tue ahahahaa…
Kesalahan dalam filem nie yg disedari oleh budak2 Forum Fantasticsuperclub.org
Final Note: I don't often look for or care about historical inaccuracies in a film unless I'm bored. This movie made a big point to set itself in 1997, a crucial year in HK history. However, all of the characters carried modern cell phones and a major scene takes place where a 2005 iPod campaign billboard is distractingly visible
Kluar wayang.. tp aku lyn DVD saja. Sempoi gak, part lawan yang pelik sikit drpd biasa. Banyak guling2, tp best la. Muzik pun lain sket.. naik mood lain mcm ja.
Sammo Hung patut dari dulu berlakon jadi mafia la, mmg masuk beliau selaku ketua mafia.. haha. Sket lagi nak sama taraf Chan Ho Nam..
YAP… DONNIE yen lak baru nie aa nampak hensem sket drpd biasa ehehee apart dia pun xberapa reti berlakon sgt.. selain fighting je aa yg beshnya… tue yg manjang jd budak belasahan/ sparing jet li jer… 😆
SHa PO Lang DVD releases

I would also like to pick up on a few concerns that your readers may have concerning the specification change:
1. Audio Commentary: We are naturally disappointed that Donnie's schedule did not allow him to engage in the recording of the feature-commentary, but he has been incredibly supportive of this project and has provided one hour of audio commentary for the two 'Anatomy of a Scene' featurettes, as well as a great 'to camera' interview, which is the backbone of the 40 minute 'First Amongst Equals' featurette.
2. Never Before Seen Footage: Far from being cancelled, the “Never Before Seen Footage” content has now been dramatically expanded. Each of the featurettes on the DVD showcases a significant amount of previously unseen 'behind-the-scenes footage', including rehearsal footage for a Donnie Yen fight sequence that was cut from the final print of the movie. The two 'Anatomy of a Scene' featurettes are composed entirely of Grade A behind-the-scenes footage:
Alleycats features Donnie Yen fighting Jacky Wu in the alleyway sequence and Challenge of the Masters showcases his climactic battle with Sammo Hung. If you want to get an insight into just how amazing and talented these guys really are, you need to check this out!
3. Breaking News / Hong Kong Press Conference footage: I had to make a decision to pull this off the disc to make room for all the new exclusive behind-the-scenes footage we recently uncovered. I am convinced the fans will find the replacement content much more compelling, as a good proportion is action-based, and gives a fascinating insight into how the fight sequences were created for this movie.
4. Martial Arts Demonstration By Jacky Wu: This has not been cancelled; the footage has been incorporated into Jacky's A Dragon rising featurette instead.
5. Anatomy Of A Scene Featurettes: both featurettes definitively include an optional commentary by Bey Logan and Donnie Yen in the finalized specification.
The DVD will be available on the 12th of September
Meanwhile Sha Po Lang sequel akan diarahkan oleh org lain (bukan WIlson Yip– letih kot pas bikin DRAGON TIGER GATE..) dan tanpa Donnie Yen.. (aihh lagi..)
Report seperti berikut:
A few details have emerged on the sequel to gritty cop thriller “S.P.L.”, which it appears will not be directed by Wilson Yip or star Donnie Yen, contrary to some of the rumours which have been floating around. Simon Yam, Sammo Hung, and Wu Jing are all set to return however, which does suggest that the film will be a continuation of the events in the original. Yen will be starring in Yip's new film, along with Louis Koo, as characters similar though unrelated to those in “S.P.L.”, which some reports may have been confusing with the official sequel. Shooting is rumoured to begin in Macau this September
