YesAsia Editorial Description

Featuring realistically exciting gunfights, Double Tap is rightfully revered among the best of Hong Kong action cinema in the new millennium. In this bullet-paced crime thriller from renowned producer Derek Yee (Protege) and writer-director Law Chi Leung (Inner Senses), Leslie Cheung (A Better Tomorrow) and Alex Fong Chung Sun (One Nite in Mongkok) play rival gunslingers on opposite sides of the law. The late superstar especially earned a nomination for Best Actor at the 37th Golden Horse Awards for his portrayal of a gun maniac who goes on to become a psychotic killer, which is no doubt one of the most challenging and unforgettable roles in his legendary filmography.

Rick (Leslie Cheung) finds his match in police inspector Miu (Alex Fong) at a shooting contest, but before they can decide who is the sharper shooter, a man who's gone berserk bursts in and starts shooting the spectators. Rick heroically guns down the man, but worryingly overwhelmed in the thrills of taking lives with his gun. Three years later, five persons involved in a sensational smuggling case that Miu is investigating are picked off one by one in a clinical fashion, which leads Miu to the chilling conclusion that his long-missing nemesis has returned...

Professional Review of "Double Tap (2000) (Blu-ray) (2020 Reprint) (Hong Kong Version)"

January 9, 2006

This professional review refers to Double Tap (2000) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
"Are you ready?" and they're off, blasting at targets and popping caps in frozen chickens with hyper-modified guns that look like Star Wars blasters. Most people come into contact with guns via sport shooting and that's the world of Double Tap. Cold sweat gun fetish with the snap of blue steel and the electronic quack of the start buzzer filling the air, it will make you light-headed with the smell of cordite. Even the menu screen is designed to play like a target range.

Leslie Cheung plays a stifled gunsmith, content to sit on the range and shoot targets, his best gal, Ruby Wong, reloading clips and helping him file down firing pins. His skill and silence make him a target for the hostility of a gang of cops (including Alex Fong) who egg him into competition. There, a cop who has lost his money on the stock market pulls his gun and starts shooting spectators in a bid to be gunned down so his family will collect on his insurance policy. Everyone's reluctant to shoot, except Leslie who kills the sad fellow with two shots to the head. After the first time, the emotional floodgates are opened and it gets easier and easier for him to kill.

The shameless addiction of gun culture prised open and exposed to light, its toxic stink wafting off the screen like chloroform. Driven crazy by the look, the sight, the smell of guns, Leslie Cheung is a man for whom the soft smack of a bullet chopping meat is the sweet sound of success. In the middle of the movie comes a scene that would play in most movies as a rousing action setpiece. Here it unfolds with all the excitement and high drama of a sniper picking off a kindergarten class - an adrenaline rush that leaves you shaking and sick.

The emotional heart of the movie is the interplay between Leslie Cheung and Ruby Wong. Leslie's pained introversion and Ruby's commitment to him is Rain Man touching. Leslie is revolted by emotional engagement and that's what keeps him fighting the growing urge he feels to shoot a person: he's not worried that it's wrong, he's scared of how it (or anything) might feel. The small space in his life he's carved out for Ruby Wong, and her happiness to be there, is the delicate detente that two emotionally battered people can sometimes negotiate. They've agreed to provide each other with something lacking, settling for contentment instead of passion because passion can be dangerous. Ruby Wong seems happy with Leslie's predictability and steadiness, his lack of large loud emotions. Leslie seems happy with his sterile life with Ruby Wong, providing the one human relationship he needs. But still there's the relentless call of the guns, guns, guns...

To watch the quiet regulated world that Ruby and Leslie have so carefully carved out for themselves collapse under the weight of Leslie's gun addiction is like watching an alcoholic break up a family. The new Leslie is an emotional creature to a fault: he screams and cries, he loves his girlfriend and slaughters dozens of people for her, he goes through manic highs and depressive lows. He's drunk on guns. Ruby sticks with him not because she's having fun but because she feels responsible; she's the only person on earth who can't judge him.

While the movie does occasionally trade in excess, isn't this the heart of all Derek Yee films? Someone who has left the turmoil of the world behind himself being forced back into it either by circumstance (People's Hero, Viva Erotica) or compulsion (Full Throttle). And when Yee makes a comedy, the results can be gentle and amusing (Viva Erotica, The Truth About Jane and Sam). When it's a tragedy, the results are devastating.

No more DVDs in Cantonese version?!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I bought the VCD version of this movie with both Mandarin and Cantonese few years ago and i really couldn't make the languages playing separately. But i've watched the Cantonese version once and just can't forget about Leslie's amazing voice!!

QUESTON ABOUT THIS DVD Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
My friend owned a DVD of this movie and we watched together. Absolutely amazing!

Love Leslie Cheung so much , but never thought he could play so well in this movie. He never bring me down.

My question is:

Is this DVD only offer Mandarin or both madarin and Catonese? 'cause I really love a Cantonese version since the Cantonese version used Leslie's true voice.

Thanks.

Very Good Movie! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This movie is very good! I would recommend it to everyone. Leslie does such a good job as a sharpshooter who goes crazy. Alex Fong is also great as the cop who tries to bring him in. Definitely a cat and mouse game between cop and suspect.
