Killer falling in love with police investigator
8 January 2004 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The beginning is just what you expect: lots of people shooting at each other, huge explosions, a street covered with corpses – and a mysterious woman in disguise. But then the complications set in. Cat (Almen Wong) is a professional killer falling in love with John, a police investigator (Michael Wong). John feels torn between his job, his ex-wife and child, and Cat of course. You guess it: it's not one of those easy relationships. A very stylish movie using strange camera angles, weird colours (almost only yellow and blue, hardly any red or green) and distorted unnatural sounds. The story picks up familiar ideas from movies such as John Woo's ‘The Killer' or Patrick Leung's masterpiece 'Beyond Hypothermia', so maybe it won't win a prize for originality, but it is a vivid mixture, not boring for a second, and it's got beautiful Almen Wong in her best role so far. If you are looking for something bizarre (what else would you expect from the director who made 'Naked Killer'?) instead of the average assassin story, try this one.
