This movie really surprised me. Maybe it's the quirky title, but I really know that Takeshi Kaneshiro is great in this one. His non-verbal acting is so expressive as the guy who says so much without speaking one word. Whether it's the blackjack game, getting beat(!) in mahjong, negotiating for a magnum, or his discussion with a hotel manager, Mo's facial expression shows he means business, but also displays a funny, even tender side.
There are so times I was laughing out loud which only a handful of recent films have done. Then, there are some dark, serious scenes and even a touching romantic side to it. It is definitely great viewing and a good way to introduce yourself to Takeshi Kaneshiro, epitome of "cool". Then, try Fallen Angels if you like what you see.
