Bullets of Love
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Andrew Lau.


A Hong Kong/Japanese co-production starring Leon Lai as a cop and Asaka Sato as his girlfriend lawyer. When he captures and she puts behind bars one half of the dynamic criminal duo "Day and Night," a hitwoman is hired to take her out. But the hitwoman, instead of just doing her job and going home, gets all hot for Leon Lai in the worst way. When Leon Lai's girlfriend dies, another woman shows up who appears to be her identical twin. Director Andrew Lau plays it as if the audience honestly doesn't realize that the new woman is the hitwoman from before, but surely you would have to be as mentally challenged as the cop's uncle Tiger (Ng Chi Hung), whom he goes to live with in Lantai after he retires from the force. The movie just plods along with all kinds of light subplots, but at last at the end, Night (an over-the-top Terence Yin) is released from jail, and most of the cast ends up lying in pools of their own blood. The subtitles are too small on the VCD to read.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
