There are plenty of things that go boom, pow, and rat-a-tat-tat in this Hong Kong thriller about rival assassins and the woman (the enigmatic Kelly Lin) caught between them. But who needs all that noisy stuff when you’ve got two stars so magnetic they can turn a somewhat derivative action drama – complete with El Mariachi, Point Break, and The Usual Suspects references – into an emotionally charged piece of dizzy fun? EXTRAS Also amusing are some behind-the-scenes footage and a swift making-of filmlet in which Asian superstar Lau speaks matter-of-factly about stunt work while comically marveling at the challenges of filming a love scene.
Genre: Foreign Language, Action/Adventure; Starring: Andy Lau, Kelly Lin, Takashi Sorimachi; Director: Johnnie To; Author: Wai Ka-fai, Joseph O'Bryan; Release Date Limited: 03/21/2003; Runtime (in minutes): 101; MPAA Rating: Unrated; Distributor: Palm
