Flush It Friday: Flash Point Sucks
Every Friday we come together to vent some shit. Once it’s out, we replace it with non-shit.
Look, I’m a firm believer that the Kung Fu movie is poised in crane stance at the pinnacle of cinematic art. As such, I was scrolling through Netflix’s “Recommended for you because you have a man-crush on Donnie Yen” section and came across Flash Point. A loose-cannon cop after goes after three drug lord brothers? A banal plot, but one I could stomach so long as it featured plenty of Donnie Yen knocking the living shit out of people. Guess what? It didn’t. There were like two short fight scenes. I counted three palm strikes total (I count palm strikes). Why you would cast Donnie Yen in a movie with relatively little fighting? That’s like getting Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to play a guy who wears his shirt for most of the movie. Or casting Brad Pitt as the Headless Horseman. Or not writing a song into Terry Crews’ script. Nobody wants to see Donnie Yen shoot people with guns. Fuck. Don’t watch Flash Point. FLUSH IT.

The floor is yours. Let it all out in the comments, but remember to follow it up with something positive. Have at it, then!
