Japanese Hong Kong movie
29 May 2017 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

A Japanese man makes a hit in Hong Kong and is then cheated for his payment. Then he goes on a mission to find out who hired him and get revenge.

This is indeed not an action movie as it spends much more time on "our hero" finding out who cheated him and where to find him than action sequences. In a way more a detective story where the detective is a hit-man. I did feel the story was very well worked through and the characters he met on his way was interesting and well acted.

If you like revenge movies then this is a great movie to choose. This movie could have been made today of course with more explosions and shooting. But it is a real treat if you can live with the slower pace. I also enjoyed the colorful views of the city there was at times.

I would not call this movie a masterpiece but a movie in the better end of the scale that I am happy I have seen it. There should truly be more people enjoying this movie.
