Point of No Return

Summary: Poor

An unbelievable story about a pair of assassins (Jacky Cheung & Patrick Tam) who work for their boss (Kenneth Tsang) who is the organiser of professional hits by all kinds of people who pay him to. The main problem with this concept is that Jacky Cheung and especially Patrick Tam just don’t suit the parts they have been given. But there is more….oh, no there isn’t, there is nothing else of any sort of impact of this film apart from various contracted killings…no real story at all.

Forget the acting, it’s pretty bad, even from Joey Wong who is given such a small part in this film it’s not worth having her in it. Guy Lai has behind a few pretty bad films before, and this one is certainly no exception. If you were considering watching this one, I would only recommend it if you want to see an action film.

Summary: NULL

Stagnant crime drama pits hit-man Jacky Cheung and hiswet-behind-the-ears kid brother against an over-intense triad goon and his muscle-building girlfriend. Deejay/insurance salesman Joey Wong saves Jacky's ass by tossing an LP at the baddies, and later forgives a hit on her kindly father on his argument that killing is 'just a business.' Aieeee!
