There's always a price to pay

when you hire an assassin -

from ten to hundreds

of thousands of dollars.

Recently, a mysterious killer

has appeared in Hong Kong.

He asks for no payment

for his services.

He eliminates his targets - all evil

men - because they deserve to die.

In the World of professional killers,

this vigilante is considered

to be the king of killers.

Others who live in fear know him

as the "Angel of Death"

Check Zone A.

You check Zone B.

Make sure everything's in order.

Follow me.

- Good evening, sir.

- All leveIs have been secured, sir.

- Is the boss still in there?

- Yes, sir.

Stay alert.

Of all women, I find the Chinese

are the most exciting in bed.

How could they

be better than Japanese women?

Because their strong sense of moral

values makes them highly reserved.

I remember sleeping with them

during the war.

I'd hear their screams of pain,

begging me to stop,

but it just made me more excited.

Japanese women can do that too.

No, it's not the same at all.

How i long for those days.

Find out what's happening!


- What's going on?

- We're checking, don't worry, sir.

- Check for intruders.

- Sir!

Some sake?

Something's wrong with the monitor.

Check it out.

Sir, he's out cold.

Someone must've broken in.

Check the surrounding monitors.

Shut all elevator power immediately!

Do you read me?

Control, do you read me?


Shut up!

So, who hired you to kill me?

Ill make you an offer.

Ill pay you three times what he did.

You have no idea

who you're dealing with.

If you kill me,

you'll also end up dead.

You'll be hunted down by professional

hitmen from all over the World.

Yes, and whoever kills you

will receive a huge reward.

They'll all be after your head.

So if l were you, Id just go.

Leave while you still can.

You stupid idiot! You've just signed

your own death warrant!

Excuse me.

- Ma'am, i...

- One minute.

But you gave me the wrong change.

It says there that these are on sale

for haIf this price.

Let me see. Hey, Jerry, you forgot

to remove the old tags again.

Can l have my money back?

l already punched it in.

Do me a favour,

go and get something else!

But Ive got everything l need.

Can't you see the queue?

You're delaying the other customers!

Then give me my change.

- There!

- Thanks.

Hey, you cheat, move on.

Hello there.

..I walked behind him,

and called out.

He turned around and i shot him!

Right in the forehead!

His head exploded like a watermelon!

I left him there,

his brains splattered everywhere!

Shooting through the heart

is much cleaner and quicker.

Joey, don't you have

another assignment for us yet?

We could do with the cash.

There's one coming up,

and you're all in.

- Fred, have you called your mom yet?

- No.

She's your only family, right?

In that case, why don't you come? You

could get lots of money to send her.

Why don't you buy

a new pair of pants?

These are very comfortable.

All right, you two,

you'll be coming with me to Macao.

Joey, can i use this a while?

You've got some nerve

freeloading off me like this!

- Joey, I haven't called my mother...

- I don't give a damn!

I gave you that assignment

to kill Mrs Chu...

and you repair her drainpipes!

She needed my help -

besides she reminded me of my mom.

What about that knife i gave you

you used to cut your target's steak?

But he couldn't even chew properly.

And you call yourseIf

a soldier of the Golden Triangle.

Some tough guy! Maybe you should

leave and stop wasting my time.

All i really need is one big hit.

- Not for just a few thousand...

- Like a hundred million?

- Are you kidding?

- Do i look like Im kidding?

- A hundred million US dollars!

- Let me do it, boss. Come on!

Get serious!

These guys want first-class killers.

- I could be a first-class killer.

- Really.

You look more like first-class jerks

to me. Hell, forget about Macao.

- Hey, come on, boss.

- Wait up, wait up.

Joey, could you tell me

where i can sign up for that?

Please, help me.

You really want that job?

OK, go to the Tsukamoto Centre

tomorrow morning.

Someone might just notice

your rags and toss you a few cents.

Eiji, the fund manager's here.

You'd better come and meet him.

Eiji, what is your problem?

I was wondering how

a great man such as my grandfather

could end up with such

a worthless son, the likes of you.

You've no right

to talk to me like that.

It was your father who was killed

and you're not doing anything

to avenge his death.

He's taken care of that.

Only because

you don't have the guts to do it.

Useless people like you

will be the downfall of Japan.

You're not even capable of running

your own father's business.

Well, Im in charge now.

Ive inherited everything.

You don't even have

a sense of honour.

That's what grandfather and i

had in common.

Eiji, your grandfather's ashes

are in there!

No! No!

These are my grandfather's ashes.

Eat them and he shall live

inside you. Go on!

You're mad!

You're nothing but an old coward.

You don't deserve

his ashes inside you.

No! Stop!

You really are mad!

The board will hear about this.

Let's go! Come on! Come on!

Sorry, Father. Im afraid

they won't listen to you any longer.

I have Grandfather's soul, so they

have no choice but to follow me now.

You're all mad!

Phew, he stinks!

''A Day in the Life

of a Professsional Killer.''
