Movie Details

David Lai and Corey Yuen spins this unusual -- for Hong Kong cinema -- sci-fi flick inspired in part by Japanese manga. Set in the near future, notorious assassin Silver Fox (Aaron Kwok) is out to avenge his master who was blinded by cop May-chun (Anita Mui). Fox's first attempt manages to kill May's underling Koo, but she herself manages to escape while partially blinding Fox along the way. May-chun goes into hiding leaving her duties to Ching-lan (Andy Lau), who is utterly in love with her. When Ching-lan decides to seek her out, he inadvertently angers the fearsome Pet Lady (Carina Lau). When he does find her, he learns that she has been poisoned by Silver Fox. He takes May-chuan to Pet Lady hoping for a cure. Yet she spurns him, refusing to help even though he crawled through broken glass at her request. All seems lost when Silver Fox attacks once more. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
