For many years professional assassin O (Takashi Sorimachi) has resided in an isolated world of killing and loneliness, which only becomes worse after the death of his love, Nancy. But his life begins to change once he meets the innocent Chin (Kelly Lin). Chin, hired to clean O’s apartment has never met her employer. However, soon the flamboyant and reckless Tok (Andy Lau) enters Chin’s life with a mission–to unveil O’s identity and usurp his place as the number one sharp-shooting assassin in the game.
Another Hong Kong gangster type thriller from Johnnie To, Fulltime Killer (2001) is based on a book by another HK filmmaker Edmond Pang Ho-Cheung. Some great action scenes between the two assassins but with its convoluted plot not Johnnies best work.
