Original Title:ChikYeung Tin Sai
Hong Kong, 2002
Director: Cory Yuen

Two foxy sisters inherit a computer agency from their murdered father and use it the way most people would: to assist their side jobs as deadly assassins.

A paid murder of a corrupt technology tycoon finds them hunted by a tough and foxy cop and the tycoon’s scheming brother. The plot is just a frame to hang a series of furious set pieces that are attuned to the grace and timing of ballet.

Sultry, smart and deadly, the heroines are as comfortable with computer viruses as they are with neck-snapping leg-kicks.
