Storyline

Set circa 1930, "The King of Killers", a one-man killing machine who, after his wife's murder, has decided to set up the "Peace Hotel", a sanctuary where anyone can stay and be protected from those who want to harm them. Although he has pledged never to kick anyone out of the Peace Hotel, he is put to the test when a penniless female swindler, who is wanted by a vicious gang for murdering their boss, shows up. Now he has to decide whether to risk an all-out war with the gang, or whether to ask her to leave the hotel. Written by L.H. Wong <as9401k56@ntuvax.ntu.ac.sg>

Not as good as his Woo films, but still a powerful movie
21 February 2000 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

This movie is very unique. Just the idea of a Chinese Spaghetti Western is mind-boggling. In this movie, Chow Yun-Fat plays "The Killer." He sets up a hotel as a refuge for people on the run. Their safety within the confines of the hotel is guaranteed. When a mysterious girl, played by Cecilia Yip, comes to hotel, his ideals and the sanctity of the hotel becomes threatened as her enemies wish to violate the rules of the hotel.

There are very good performances in this film. Chow Yun-Fat does an excellent job as "The Killer." Cecilia Yip is a very strong and bold female character. As the relationship of the two develop, I actually sympathised and liked the two characters.

The action scenes are well done, for the most part. The machine gun attack and the final sword fight were very well done. The other sword fights were somewhat blurry. Ching Siu-Tung should have been on hand to choreograph those scenes.

I also thought that the end was very powerful and emotional. It even rivals the ending of The Killer. In the end, this movie is worth seeing not only for its action sequences, but for the great performances by the two leads. This movie is not as good as his Woo films, but it is still a powerful movie.
