Over recent years Yen has appeared in some of the greatest and most famous fight scenes in martial arts film history.

It is short, sweet and brutal — just like Yen! Most fight scenes that pit one character against many drag it out, and while more fighting is rarely a bad thing, Yen’s surgical efficiency here shows fantastic precision and skill. The scene is also very realistically brutal. It doesn't go over the top but shows some severe violence along with technique. Credit has to go to Sammo Hung who choreographed the scene. Sammo, alongside Yen have created a unique and brilliant sequence that will live on in martial arts history.
