Pinhole Movie Reviews


The Mission 鎗火 by tincolor

A group of thugs in suits are hired to protect a triad boss after his last group of thugs in suits screwed up and  got themselves killed. This is my first Johnnie To movie, but apparently he’s the greatest thing to happen to Hong Kong crime cinema in recent years. In between some really great tense action scenes there is a lot of down time used to develop the friendship between the main actors. The ending confused me and seemed like it suffered from sloppy script writing, but I’m told that it’s actually totally brilliant, so I guess that one’s up to personal preference. Anyway, overall a great Hong Kong action film that’s definitely worth checking out.
