Poor Bastards of Cinema: Naked Killer

In this *neutered* Chinese thriller, a cop is convinced that a mysterious woman in town is the same one that he used to know.  The fact that she looks exactly like her and merely changed her name was his first hint.  They go on a dinner date where he presses the issue.  Thankfully for him...
A guy from the second scene of the film shows up & he should be able to recognize her.  Unfortunately, he says that it's not her and throws a little 'tude.  He gets mad and leaves, since he was just in their for dinner or something.
As soon as he crosses the street, he is hit by a car.  This turns out be driven by a rival assassin who was 'doing her a favor.'  Of course, how would they know to come?  How would they know what was said?  If they did hear what was said, why did they kill him?  He didn't help in any...oh screw it, he's dead.
What did this guy do to deserve this?  He worked at a Hair Salon in the beginning and shows up here, only to get killed.  That's just...sad.

I mean, he was an annoying, gay stereotype, but he was a person!

Next up, one movie brings us two Poor Bastards of Cinema.  It was written in the stars!  Stay tuned...


  1. But was the killer really naked?
    And was it a chick???

  2. You'll have to see the movie to find out!

    Well, that or read the review I put up. Either one would work, really.
