Assassin, The


Synopsis
This is one of those action films that is a bit gorier than the norm. This one has eye-lid sewing, decapitations, and severed limbs, so if that is your sort of thing, you might be at home with this one! The hero (Zang Fengyi) is imprisoned and thus separated from the women who has his love (Rosamund Kwan). However, in order to get out of prison early, he accepts an offer to become an assassin under the direction of an evil eunuch. He has becomes somewhat brainwashed with his new ways, but one day he sees his old love, and soon his past starts creeping back up on him... violent and bloody.
