Stayin' alive
5 February 2010 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a really good looking flick by the standards of Philip Ko (in opposite to an earlier reviewer, I own a RC2 disc in widescreen format), many scenes have been shot on location in London including passers-by and police men happily smiling in the camera for the Asian "tourists". Anyway, not much reason to smile, "Killer's Romance" is a merciless, violent revenge picture. Simon Yam plays a young man who wants revenge for the death of his father, but it is not easy to find out who the actual killers were. He runs into a beautiful lady (Joey Wong from "Chinese Ghost Story") who sees him donate a lot of money for the orphans the first time, and shoot a man in a wheelchair like a professional killer the second time. Her curiosity about this contradiction leads to a love story which will of course put her in deadly danger... Recommended.
