Two Wongs don't make it right.
28 August 2006 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

The two Wongs in question—Almen and Michael—play sexy assassin, Yin Ying, and policeman, John Cannon. Although on opposing sides of the law, the two fall in love and plan a new life together. When Yin Ying is captured by the police, she thinks she has been betrayed by John, and plans revenge. However, she soon finds out that this is not so, and goes after those really responsible—her lesbian agent and her top client.

Clarence Ford of Naked Killer fame directs this sorry mess and imbues it with all the trappings of a bad 80s music video; so many shots are out of focus and at a 45% angle that I now need my eyes tested and have a permanent crick in my neck.

After loads of sappy love scenes between John and Yin (a poor excuse for showing us Almen Wong in various states of undress, but never naked), this boring movie ends in a glut of John Woo influenced action which includes slow-mo shootouts, church based gun-play, and a Mexican standoff. The whole affair is instantly forgettable and rather tame for a Cat III movie.

*** I just realised that a third Wong helped make this mess, the writer and producer Wong Jing, but that wouldn't have made for such a great summary ***
