FLASHPOINT -- Genius Products' Dragon Dynasty Label Ignites With 2-Disc Ultimate Edition

Powerful Non-Stop Martial Arts Thrill-Ride Blazes To DVD On April 22

"Hard-core fist-for-fist action…nail-biting tension" --The Hollywood Reporter

SANTA MONICA, CA – Breaking Hong Kong box office records last year with its high-energy action sequences and fierce kung fu clashes, FLASH POINT explodes to DVD April 22 from Genius Products, under the company’s acclaimed Dragon Dynasty label. Arriving as a Two-Disc Ultimate Edition and featuring intense performances by seasoned martial arts experts and some of Asian action’s brightest stars Donnie Yen (Hero, Kill Zone), Louis Koo (Robin-B-Hood, Zu Warriors) and Collin Chou (The Matrix trilogy, The Enforcers), FLASH POINT is a visually stimulating cavalcade of destruction and mayhem that highlights the pulse-pounding combat with a new dynamic mixed martial arts action style. The film follows an intense detective who after years of painstaking pursuit closes in on his archenemies, a merciless gang of three brothers. With the arrest of one of the brothers, witnesses suddenly start dying and evidence is destroyed. When his undercover partner is exposed and becomes a target, he goes after the brothers directly – no holds barred. An audience favorite at the Toronto and San Francisco Asian Film Festivals, FLASH POINT is "…an entertaining action blowout" ( This two-disc collection will include three deleted scenes, an exclusive interview with the film’s star and action director Donnie Yen and much more. FLASH POINT will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $24.95.

Like the flashy sports car he controls, Detective Sargent Jun Ma of the Serious Crimes Unit is precise and brutal. Determined to destroy his criminal nemeses Archer, Tiger and Tony, a gang of three powerful brothers, Jun Ma infiltrates their corrupt organization with the planting of a mole, Wilson. When Wilson’s dual role is exposed, he becomes the last living witness to testify against Archer and now Jun Ma must battle to protect his partner from the murderous thugs to ensure they are put out of business permanently.
