YesAsia Editorial Description

Johnny To's Milky Way Films produced The Odd One Dies, a quirky crime thriller that's like The Mission filtered through the offbeat sensibilities of Wong Kar Wai. Takeshi Kaneshiro is Mo, a sullen loser whose personal luck has hit an all time low. With nothing left, he hires himself out as a hitman for an outrageously low price. Once he takes out his target, he fully expects to be dead. This last-ditch payoff is just a palty sum meant to tide over the last days of his meaningless existence. But his luck turns around. He wins big while gambling, so instead of doing the deed he contracts out to another pathetic assassin. Carman Lee is his new hire, a ragged ex-con who wants the dough - and maybe her death - for her own personal reasons. Unwittingly, Mo is dragged into her sordid, yet affecting existence. But ultimately, one has to die. Right?

Director Patrick Yau's uncommon crime thriller is an understated cinema surprise spelled out in vivid reds, greens, and dirty urban browns. The Odd One Dies is a rare and unusual cinematic ride which relies on its charismatic actors and their quiet emotions to paint a genre picture unlike any other. The dark humor, stylish cinematography, quirky characters, and unspoken promises of The Odd One Dies make it a late-nineties genre wonder, and probably one of the most underrated Hong Kong movies around.
