A cheesy, by-the-numbers Hong Kong remake (1990) of La femme Nikita with an elevator-music score, daft subtitles (e.g., “My head feels so hurt,” “I'm sorry for swirling you into trouble”), and a reasonable amount of gore. The programmed-killer heroine (Jade Leung), dressed throughout in skimpy or tight outfits, gets a microchip implanted in her brain and is conditioned in prison with torture techniques out of A Clockwork Orange. The story doesn't so much come to an end as stop, and when it did I was very grateful. Directed by Stephen Shin; with Simon Yam and Thomas Lam. Not to be confused with Point of No Return, an American remake of the same movie. In Cantonese with subtitles. 92 min.
