A Taste Of Killing And Romance

There’s only one rule for high-priced hitmen in this Hong Kong crime syndicate: if you fail to kill your target, then you become the target. But when the organization’s toughest assassin (superstar Andy Lau) falls for the killer new recruit (Anita Yuen), they’ll have to go on the run to survive a bullet ballet that offers A Taste of Killing and Romance.

Marc Edward Heuck discusses A Taste of Killing and Romance on the New Beverly blog.

The Odd One Dies

The secret world of the Hong Kong underground comes into focus in The Odd One Dies, a thrilling, stylish, and darkly comedic tale from Johnnie To’s Milkyway Image. When a lowlife gunman (Takeshi Kaneshiro from Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking Express and Fallen Angels) hits it big gambling, he wants out of his most recent contract. But finding a replacement is more difficult than he bargained for when his new hire turns out to be an expert hitwoman and their relationship shifts from professional to personal. Sometimes killing can be one hell of a way to make a living.
