Sharp Guns
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Billy Tang.


Alex Fong is Tricky On, an expert hitman hired by an old friend to rescue his daughter from kidnappers. He recruits a crack team, including a sharpshooter, a race car driver, and a hand-to-hand combat and torture expert, played by the beautiful Anya. Together they complete the operation flawlessly, but then find out it is just the beginnings of their problems. The plot twists and turns all the way until the end, never totally ridiculous but never entirely credible, either, always keeping a sense of humor about it. If our heroes get out of one impossible situation after another, well, it's because they are the best, and that's just what they do. Entertaining and satisfying, with a solid script that never fizzles out. Alex Fong does a fine job but Anya steals the show with her steely gaze and distractingly sexy outfit.
