Colour of Pain
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Samuel Leung.


A hit man from Japan (Kenya Sawada) gets a bullet in his brain while on assignment in Hong Kong and can't go home again (apparently since the airport metal detectors would go off and people would have questions). With nothing to lose and just a little time left before the bullet kills him, he hooks up with some young Hong Kong punks (including Terence Yin and Sam Lee) and brings their heists to the next, much more violent, level. Josie Ho plays a police chief to no good effect, while Raymond Wong is the cop trying to bring the gang in, who finds he has more in common with the hit man than he could have ever imagined. Enjoyable B-grade actioner.
