Pretty Good!!
22 September 2000 | by ironsidevSee all my reviews

Double Tap (Gun King) is plainly not just an action movie, this movie is also filled with suspenseful drama.

Leslie Cheung plays Rick, an expert marksman who shoots a threatening bystander during a match against his CID competitor, played by Alex Fong, who could not attempt to stop the bystander. After that killing accident, Rick does not feel scared or nervous, but HAPPY?! A few years later, the police suspects Rick of killing a witness and 4 cops in a trial court case. The trail turns into a cat-and-mouse game until the final stand-off.

This movie is deeply emotional, for Rick's first kill brings a feeling of an addiction as he becomes a threat to the police. It showed how pitted rivals faced against each other, a cop afraid of shooting to kill pit off against someone who won't stop at nothing to kill. It makes you think whether killing makes you afraid of being addicted? Worth considered to check out.
