Special ID (2013)

A Chinese action movie in which Donnie Yen plays an undercover cop who attempts to take down a gang leader, or something... it was all so bland that I'd forgotten the majority of it seconds after it had ended.
The fight scenes are as unconvincing as the props, except for a brief moment near the end with Tian Jing, during a car chase, where it almost feels like a scene from a Police Story sequel, but it's gone as quickly as it arrived.
The relationships were empty shells. But by far the worst aspect was the music - having none at all would've served the film better than the weak rock band garbage that was used the majority of the time.
