‘Freeze! I’m going to film you, while you’re being killed by my friend, but make sure you look good!’

That is, in one sentence, the main idea of the film ‘You shoot, I shoot’, a twisted black comedy produced by Vincent Kok Tak-Chiu, and directed by Pang Ho-Cheung, that will make you see “the killing” from a different ‘angle’.

Who said that all films about paid hitmen have the same boring story definitely needs to see this one. The film starts with a paid  hitman, that goes by the name of Bart (Eric Kot), who, due to the economic situation in Hong Kong, is out of job. This is when the opportunity arises, as Mrs. Ma (Miao Felin) hires him to be more than just an assassin. He needs to film every crime he commits. That is why he is going to hire Chuen (Cheung Tat-Ming), an amateur filmmaker who urges for fame.

Their reputation of making ‘killer’ movies is well-known, and, more and more people are willing to pay good money in order to see the video recording of their enemies’ face while being killed. How will their business evolve and will their ‘careers’ be successful, are questions I can’t answer as it will ruin your entire film, but I can tell you that, if you have a good sense of humor, this movie will appeal to you.

Although the film, as a whole, is an  dark comedy, the violent murder scenes that you will see along it, could make you reconsider watching it until the end. So, if you’re a fan of the genre, then you came to the right place. The great performance of the main actors and the continues laughter will be a bonus.
