Dark War
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Jamie Luk Kim Ming.


A pretty-boy hit man (Peter Ho Yun Tung) gets a job at a hotel in the Philippines run by an old timer played by Yasuaki Kurata, and kills for only ten bucks a hit. Turns out it's because he's the adopted, but favorite son of a powerful businessman. His brother-in-law hates him for it and so he's in exile, while a rogue cop wanders the streets of Manila raping people and chucking grenades for the hell of it. All of the interesting cast members get pointlessly killed off, Kurata is completely sidelined, and the movie seems only concerned with whether the two brothers will ever become friends again. Much worse than it should have been.
