My Wife Is a Gangster (2001)

INTRODUCTION:

My Wife is a Gangster is unique blend of different genres; action, comedy, and drama. It's main focus is on comedy, so don't see this movie thinking it is wall to wall action. It does have a couple of great fight scenes - one in the rain, one in a field of tall grass, and one in the rival gang's hideout. The action choreography and camera work is done superbly, very stylish.

Excellent story and premise, and the whole thing is well-executed. The lead is believable as both the tough gangster and the sympathetic sister trying to please her dying older sister. A most excellent film with some laugh-out loud moments and genuine drama towards the end. Good action, too, but it's not an action movie, so don't go expecting a lot of violence. Overall, this movie works and is unique in it's own right. 9/10. See also My Wife is a Gangster 2.
