A French chef, who used to be a hitman, vows to avenge his daughter, after her family are wiped out in a hit. So he teams up with three assassins to get revenge. His dish of vengeance becoming increasingly difficult to enjoy though, due to a bullet that's lodged in his brain, that causes super alzheimer's..
Okay gun~play thriller from Mr To, which to be honest, I only bothered watching because of Simon Yam and Anthony Wong. The French lead Johnny Hallyday did a decent enough job in spite of his crazy eyes but ultimately there wasn't as much action as I was hoping for. The gun play is arted up and slow~mo, there seems to be an excessive amount of people wearing sunglasses unnecessarily (Is it because of Hallyday's weird eyes or the fact that you can never be sure of standard solar activity, the sun setting and rising willy~nilly in this?!) and some of the story didn't seem to quite gel as well as what you'd hope. In fact, I probably would've dumped the memory loss sub plot altogether and just kept this a straight forward revenge piece. All in all though a reasonable effort and certainly worth watching if you can buy it cheap. Yam is in his element playing the loony gang boss but is underused, and Wong does a professional job as the lead hitman.
Not a bad experience, could've been better though.
