Bulletproof Monk Review


Very Good
Thank God for late April. Tax refunds, nice warm weather, and all of the movies that weren't quite good enough to come out in May show up in theatres. They're not fine art and they're not summer blockbusters, but at least they're not House of 1000 Corpses.

Tequila's girlfriend, Teresa (Teresa Mo) is getting white roses (a motif that shows up later in the "Once a Thief" series) that contain encoded messages from an informant in the triads. This informant, Tony (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) faces the facts that he is beginning to forget whether he is a cop or a gangster.... And all of that is before his world begins to get very confusing.
