The film is based on Pang Ho-cheung's novel of the same name. It is informally known by Hong Kong English title You & I.


Based on a book by Hong Kong filmmaker Pang Ho-cheung, Fulltime Killer protagonist O is a hitman being challenged by new hotshot Lok Tok-wah. O has lived a life of seclusion as the number one hitman in Asia. The woman living at his contact address is captured after O foils a set-up by his boss. He then goes on the run while trying to fend off his adversary. The last part of the movie focuses on an Interpol detective's attempt to write the story of Tok and O.

Alternate ending

The film has two endings. The normal one that appeared in theaters and the special ending for Malaysia where O and Chin end up being caught by police. This was supposedly done as per special request to show that "Crime doesn't pay".
