A creative funny movies
15 July 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Edmond Pang first directorial debut (the director of Men Suddenly in Black, one of the finest black comedy since Shaolin Soccer), this movie talk about a assassin, name Bart (Eric Kot) whose business is slow due to Hong Kong bad economy. He finally got an assignment but with a catch, he must film the guy being killed. His first attempt was a failure, but was given another chance, this time he hired director assistance (Cheung Tat Ming) to film for him. This time it becomes a hit, and now many Rich Ladies/etc want to hire them. Not going into some subplot, the climax come when he must hit a triad boss.

This movie was very funny and creative, (just like Men Suddenly in Black, but not has good has that movie) but also has a major flawed. If they had filmed so many different killing tapes (with bart face in it), won't the cops at least get one of those tapes and arrest him with him on camera killing someone. Aside from that, it poke fun a lot on HK movies (about their preproduction and post production), which was very enjoyable and fun. The ending was stretch pretty long, but overall it was amusing to see what going on. The main actors in this movie are usually supporting actors; this movie doesn't really show they have the skills ready to be in the main actor roles. This movie is consider a black comedy because it is basically saying killing is good and that you can get away with it.

My favourite part in the movie is when there was another imitator assassin (Lam Suet) group, who offering stamp card and that if they kill more they save more. If you love Men Suddenly in Black (which talk about adultery is good), than this movie should also entertain has well.
