A shoot em up where you really don't care who lives or dies. The romantic subplot is contrived and lacks any true emotion. The lead actress is so cold and emotionless you have no empathy for what happens to her, although you know it isn't going to end pretty. Her nemesis looks like a Duran Duran band member, and probably can sing better than act. Ching Wan Lau is his usual reliable self, but his role is secondary and adds little to the story. The saving grace is the finale, which is a gritty gem of camerawork, although in similar vein as John Woo's "The Killer", everything seems to be in slow motion. The only difference is that "The Killer" is a far superior piece of work that Beyond Hypoetermia can only strive to be.
This movie makes me want noodles really bad.
A watchable flick about a hit-woman trying to escape her violent past when she starts to develop a relationship with a noodle-vendor whose shop is near her home. It's got its moments, but sort of falls into a trap of feeling too familiar at times, as a lot of these Asian action flicks can tend to blend together.
