Hooker's World
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Hong Lung.


Here's a twist on the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold cliche: the PIMP with heart of gold! Ronny Cheung is the kind hearted pimp who sends a girl to vice cop Simon Loui for a little action. When she ends up dead, Loui becomes the target of an investigation and his very pissed off girlfriend, Grace Lam, goes undercover and becomes the pimp's girlfriend to investigate. Despite being filled with beautiful women, including Sophie Ngan as one of the hookers, despite having nothing going for it in terms of plot, character, or style, despite being called HOOKER'S WORLD, there isn't even a flash of nudity and a complete lack of eroticism. The most antiseptic film made about prostitutes, ever. Maybe they needed a tougher pimp.
