Hello,
I remember back in the day I found an asian film that featured an amazing action scene.

The scene took place on the street of a city, and it was between cops and gangsters, the whole sequence was done in one long single take, and I think ended in a birds eye view of the carnage after the shootout.

It seemed like a newer film, possibly mid 2000's, the poster for the film was birds eye view of the carnage from the shootout, with gangsters and police walking away.

I can't place what the title of the film was, but the storyline had to do with gangsters taking some people hostage, and engaging in a pr battle with the police via the media, as some cops try to save the hostages.

If anyone knows what film this is please let me know, I really want to track the film down.
Thanks!

Could it be Johnnie To's BREAKING NEWS (04)? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414931/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
