#1 - the faux "spoiler" synopsis is completely bogus - she does NOT refuse to steal the money - she STEALS it - he "kills" her for different motives

... on to the film though....

this movie pretty much sucks with a capital x
BUT
that's what makes it so great
the extremely low budget mellowdramatic synth soundtrack
the RIDICULOUS plot "twists" and sean penn-style gratuitous slomo shots
and the supreme classic hk bad subtitles had me howling with laughter - seriously, it took me twice as long to watch the movie because i kept rewinding so as not to miss any of the beautiful cantonenglish

top it all off with a fantastic over-the-top ubersuspenseful climax battle

if you like comedies that weren't meant to be comedies, check this out
