      Audience Member A Fine Movie but still a ok movie Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review camille l Double Tap est un polar comme on peut en voir des tonnes à Hong Kong, avec des personnages torturés un peu surjoués, qui ont des femmes dévouées et totalement idiotes et des scènes d'action franchement efficaces (quoiqu'un peu trop éparses ici). Leslie Cheung et Alex Fong sont loin d'être très bons, tandis que Ruby Wong est plutôt convaincante. La musique de Peter Kam est une catastrophe très 90's mais cela ne gâche quand même pas un petit polar concis et bien ficelé. Rien de nouveau à signaler, cependant. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review dave j Monday, June 4, 2012 (2000) Double Tap (In Chinese with English subtitles) ACTION/ DRAMA First by looking at the title, Double Tap is a game where the Hong Kong police play in where it involves several different targets and be able to shoot two bullets exactly at the same hole. Interesting beginning about the double tap shooting game resorting to an unnecessary build up to a predictable conclusion. Leslie Chung as Rick slow descend into madness after a convenient interruption of a shooting game for the Hong Kong law enforcement by a suicidal by cop. 2.5 out of Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Rick Pang (Portrayed by the late Cantopop star and John Woo veteran Leslie Cheung) is a gunsmith and a highly skilled practical shooter. During a shooting match, a depressed day trader threatens the safety of innocents, and Rick his forced to kill him, using the titular double tap technique. After this, Rick discovers that he actually likes killing, loses his sanity, and goes on a killing spree (mainly focusing on members of Hong Kong's finest). Miu, the reigning pistol champ, is also the detective in charge of Rick's case. Technically, the film is fairly well made. There are some choppy edits, and the score is a tad questionable, but nothing that isn't easily looked past. It is apparent that much research went into the shooting aspect of the film. That being said, the gunplay is some of the most realistic I've ever seen. This give the films action scenes a high level of polish (though some of this is ruined with a few cheesy CGI bits). On the acting side of things, most of the performances are fairly average, with the exception of Leslie Cheung. As Rick Pang, he easily slips between arrogantly taunting his nemesis and gunning down his pursuers with a cold detachment the likes I haven't since the police station massacre in the the first Terminator movie. While far from perfect, Double tap is a fun and engaging movie that any HK movie enthusiast can enjoy along with anybody who just happens to enjoy some good gun porn. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member It is better than triple tap. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member yee's predecessor to his triple tap. more technical, less "overheard", for fans of competition and psych crime thrillers. rip leslie, this film also made me appreciate the late asian megastar's craft more.
