A Taste of Killing and Romance
Director: Veronica Chan
Stars: Andy Lau, Anita Yuen, Waise Lee, Mark Cheng
The usual (at least by HK standards) story of two competing assassins (Lau and Yuen) who fall in love, which causes them to become a target of their former employer as well as the police. This isn't really anything that hasn't been done many times before or since, but what's in here is pretty stylish (some of the camera work and editing is very good and makes the film less generic) and there's a decent amount of gunplay. If you're looking for a good HK shoot-em-up, you could do a lot worse than this one.
