You obviously don't watch enough movies. And if you did, you'd know that when the organization betrays a killer, he'll pay back twice to the ones who've wronged him. Even if he dies trying.

There's a plot in there somewhere about two assassins and a girl they both have feelings for. One of them wants to take the number one assassin title from the other. But really this film is just a exercise in style over substance. The thing is the style IS great and it's very fun to watch. Well at least it attempts to get serious. A few nice set-pieces though.
