Lot of shootings, lot of slow motion... The top was one of the last scenes : There are the 2 main characters. If I recall correctly the woman was blind from the start and the man became blind during one thos... read more

"Katsottu: 6.6.2014 DVD Palkkatappaja Ah Jong (Chow Yun-Fat) rakastuu laulajaan (Sally Yeh), jonka vanhingossa sokaisee. Ah Jong saa peräänsä Li Ying-nimisen (Danny Lee) poliisin, joka ystävystyy Jongin kanssa ja rakastuu myös naiseen. Toiminta oli loitavaa ja sitä oli tarpeeksi. Draamakin oli ihan hyvää ja loppu oli koskettava. "
