Devil Face, Angel Heart
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Billy Chung Siu Hung.


Daniel Wu and Lam Suet are assassins, and they are also brothers. Stephen Fung and Sam Lee are cops on their trail. When the triad boss's wife takes a shine to Wu despite the fact that he is horribly disfigured, he decides he will do anything for her. Will he be betrayed, or will she be faithful? Will he get into a car accident which damages his face futher, allowing doctors to somehow fix it entirely so that he looks like young sexy Daniel Wu again? Will a prostitute famous for her fellatio teach him the art of seduction? This isn't a completely terrible movie by any measure, but it isn't exactly good, either. It does have its moments, though. Lam Suet puts in a solid performance. There are a couple violent and nasty gun battles, and I could appreciate the liberal use of blood packs -- some moments are downright gory.

Rating: Marginally Recommended (Marginally Recommended)
