Alfred Cheung's best film
23 September 1999 | by (Langen, Germany) – See all my reviews

Even for a 'heroic bloodshed' from Hong Kong's glorious 80s this movie is really dark and nihilistic but I love it! A true film noir, which doesn't even spare children from being shot and which features the coolest hitwoman in film history. Compared to Pat Ha's professionalism the ladies from "Nikita" or "Beyond Hypothermia" appear nice and harmless.

And yet she is very likeable as a foreigner stranded in a city that she doesn't like with her Jackie-Kennedy-hairdo and old-fashioned clothes from the 60s. Yuen Biao is great as well in one of his best roles.
