A classic no by design but by accident. I do not know what Maia was doing in this movie or who she meant to be. A computer hacker she was not. Nor a good gangster or a love interest. It was really hard to see where she fitted in. It was a female been cast in the role of female to be a female. A side form that the movie was great with some nice touches and a lot of bullets and blood just the way we like Hong Kong action films.

John Lee (Chow) is an assassin hired by Mr Wei (Kenneth Tsang) to take down his enemies. He owes Mr Wei three jobs, then he is free. But the last hit proves to be more than Lee can handle...
...This is one of the best films I have ever seen. Crammed into its sub-90 minute runtime is more action that most mainstream 2hr Hollywood action flicks. Spattered with neat camerawork and quotable lines ("His name IS John Lee!"), the direction is ultra-tight, not a shot or a word wasted.
Chow Yuen-Fat oozes charm as the troubled assassin, and Mira Sorvino turns in a nice performance as the female lead. Jurgen Prochnow, always good value for money, revels in his role as a villain.
The soundtrack is simply fantastic. Contributions from a selection of bands that you won't have heard of (Ithaka, the Crystal Method), and a Stereo MC's remix of Tricky's "She makes me wanna die". Be warned though that the official soundtrack CD is just the score, and doesn't contain any of these tracks.
Buy this film. Really.

I'm not normally a fan of fast-moving, all-action shoot-em-ups like this, but I've seen this film three times now and it grows on me more with each viewing.

The plot is comic-book simple. Chinese assassin John Lee (Chow "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" Yun-fat) is in thrall, for reasons that are never revealed, to Terence Wei (played by Kenneth Tsang), the Mr. Big of Chinese organised crime in Los Angeles. Lee has completed two hits on criminal opponents of Wei; the third will clear his obligation to Wei, which will free his family (held hostage by Wei) back in China. HOWEVER...
At the start of the film, Wei's son is shot and killed by Police Lt. Stan Zedkov (Michael Rooker)in a drugs bust. Wei's third hit for Lee is to kill Zedkov's seven year-old son in revenge. Lee, though quite happy to ice criminals, is unable to bring himself to kill the boy. As a result he goes on the lam, intending to return to China and free his family before Wei can have them rubbed out. To do this he needs a phoney passport (why a kosher one won't do is never made clear, but in a film like this such matters are irrelevant). He goes to forger Meg Coburn (Mira Sorvino). Wei's torpedoes follow him to her pad, and from then on its bullets, bullets all the way, as Wei sends in more assassins to replace Lee (hence the title), rub him out and do the hit job on the boy, who Lee and Coburn end up trying to save...

Probably the reason this film holds my attention and affection so much is the presence of Sorvino (who in real life, funnily enough, speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese, though you'd never think so from this film).

This is probably chow yun-fat at his best, it has all the usual showcase of guns, and the usual bloodbath scenes that chow yun-fat is so famous for. It matches the level of exellence that is potrayed in all of his other films like "the corruptor". It is about a hit-man(chow yun-fat) who is being blackmailed by the main mafia boss, and is being forced to carrry out three hits in exchange his familys safety, it all goes well until on his third assigment he bails out and the whole of chinatown, which means chow yun-fat must defend himself. the film has some of the best shootout scenes i have ever seen. brilliant, controversial, gory, gruesome,spectacular, these are just a few of the words i can think of to describe this film.

Pretty good action movie going for the record of the most bullets fired in the course of one movie. Even better there is no sex in it which means you can watch it without being embarrassed, and better still it is really cheap.

This is not a massively widespread movie so when i first saw it I was absolutley stunned it's amazing.
Cho Yun Fat couldn't be better as the lead role and fits in very well with the character of the assassin.
The opening scene starts the film the way it means to go on with an outstanding gun fight in a dance club. Mira Sorvino is excellent support and looks amzing it the film as a witty gun toting documents forger.
What is even more amazing is the story. Not all, all out action films have such a good plot with several twists and turns and unexpecteds that make this film so good.
But this is a film that can be watched many time over just for the gun scenes in particular the carwash and the end gun scenes.
