As the Hong Kong economy takes a hit and the killer-for-hire business falls into a slump, a camera man and a professional killer team up to offer the perfect package deal in director Pang Ho Cheung's dark urban comedy.

Audience Reviews for Maai hung paak yan (You Shoot, I Shoot)


You Shoot, I Shoot may sound like some really stupid movie, but it is stupid in a good way. This film is like something out of the Coen's book. It is weird, but wildly entertaining.So you have a guy, Bart, that kills people and another guy, Cheun, that films it. What makes this story so entertaining is the fact that Bart's profession is no secret to his close friends. You actually have a scene with Bart, Cheun, Bart's wife, and his parent in-laws talking openly about killing people.The story seems to go nowhere in the beginning, but the wacky opening credits, the dialogue, and the amateurish, yet effective, camerawork keep the audience in the film. Around the 50 minute mark is where the stories biggest element unfolds, which will carry you to the very end. At the top of the hour the film gets a little dramatic, but thankfully it only lasts for about 10 minutes before picking up for the 30 minute finale.The acting is over the top at times. The two leads, Eric Kot and Tat-Ming Cheung are comparable to a George Clooney from Burn After Reading. In other words, it is entertaining. There is also some cute female actresses in here with Asuka Higuchi leading the way.You Shoot, I Shoot is Ho-Cheung Pang's debut film and it is a successful one. This is a nice watch if you are in the mood for near dark comedy.

Unusually fresh plot, cinematography and humor in a Korean comedic genre that is typically bogged down by stale acting and unnecessarily melodramatic overtones. You Shoot, I Shoot doesn't quite break the mold; but it does put some cracks in it.
