Chow Yun-fat is a professional killer whose compassion gets him into trouble. Needing a passport to elude the henchmen of his former employer—now his archenemy—he calls on Mira Sorvino, a forger who turns action hero and becomes far more than his sidekick. I marveled at the equitable nature of their relationship, at their comparable resourcefulness in tight situations, and at Sorvino's macho one-liners, which are neither graspingly feminist nor embarrassingly unconscious of what it can mean when such rhetoric comes from the mouths of babes. But despite the practical nature of the costars' bond, I spent most of the lukewarm actioner wondering when the hell they were going to start kissing. Written by Ken Sanzel; directed by Antoine Fuqua; John Woo was one of the executive producers.
