John Woo's masterpiece. Chow Yun Fat is a hitman who accidentally blinds a cabaret singer during a gang hit. Guilt-stricken, he tries to find her a good life as he is pursued by a vengeful gangster and a dedicated cop (Danny Lee).
All of the guns seen in the film are real. Because of Hong Kong's very strict gun laws, they had to be imported and their use on-set was closely monitored.
