Overview

Patrick Leung directed this bloody Hong Kong thriller about a nameless hitwoman (Jacqueline Wu) who, for reasons not entirely clear and never fully developed, has a lower than average body temperature. She is cold-blooded in other ways as well, assassinating her targets with steely detachment and having only two real acquaintances: the Cambodian woman who gives her killing assignments and money, and the street vendor Long Shek (Lau Ching-wan), at whose stand she habitually relaxes after successful hits with a bowl of noodles. Long Shek dubs her Pretty Ghost, and the two gradually become something like friends. Pretty Ghost ends up traveling to South Korea to assassinate a local gangland kingpin, a job she decides will be her last. Unfortunately, the dead man's bodyguard, Yichin (Han Sang-woo), is out for revenge and comes after Pretty Ghost, and she is quickly betrayed by her Cambodian boss. Violent as it may be, the film also spends a good deal of time exploring Pretty Ghost's character, and her slow change from icy killing machine to humanized woman is well handled by Wu and screenwriter Szeto Wai-cheuk. Shirley Wong and Cheung Sung-kei co-star.
