Wayne Lai is a Player On TVB’s “Death By Zero”

Produced by TVB, the action comedy series Death By Zero <殺手> premiered on Monday to solid fanfare. With producer Joe Chan (陳維冠) at the helm, the series about warring assassin factions. It stars Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) as the professional assassin Yim Mo, nicknamed “Yim Wong” in reference to the Chinese lord of the underworld, who is dealing with a damaged reputation as he struggles to maintain his relevance in a competitive industry. It also stars Moses Chan (陳豪), Ali Lee (李佳芯), Katy Kung (龔嘉欣), Elena Kong (江美儀), and Samantha Ko (高海寧).

The first episode starts off with a younger Yim Mo, who after successfully killing a triad boss in Taiwan, goes on an extended promiscuous spree of hooking up with random women he meets at nightclubs and parties. He makes out with a women on the backseat of a taxi, while the taxi driver watched with enthusiasm—many netizens expressed that the scene seemed to be a clap back at the Andy Hui (許志安) and Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) cheating incident last year, though this particular scene was shot before the scandal happened.

In a flash, the episode takes viewers ten years into the future—Yim Mo is no bankrupt with a destroyed reputation. He returns to Hong Kong in hopes to find cheaper work. He receives a mission that offers him a million Hong Kong dollars, but the job is quickly snatched up by his opponent, Zero (portrayed by Moses Chan).

Meanwhile, Yim Mo strikes up an interesting relationship with the prostitute Lulu (portrayed by Elena Kong). Lulu is introduced as Yim Mo’s confidant, and his go-to person whenever he feels troubled or injured from his job as an assassin.

What do you think of the series so far?

    I’m quite enjoying this series! The action scenes are well shot and the script is funny. It’s been awhile since Wayne had a good role so I’m looking forward on continuing with the series.

    I do plan to watch later but the average age of the actors in this series is probably pushing 45. Im concerned about the bankability of younger actors because im finding TVB very hard to get into these days except for the recent rather good exorcist metre which has potential to go beyond the same rehashed storyine.

    Sorry, but death by zero is crap
    Good cast but crap story line

    Don’t really care about any of the characters plus all assassins, so who cares…

    Life after Death is a much better series atm..

      @mulder99 agree. DBZ starts off with no plot. It almost a sitcom at this point with its characters just stringing along. What would you even call it? Action comedy

    The first partying and taxi scene with Wayne was a lot to swallow. Can’t see him as anything other than an awesome uncle anymore

    Reminds me of a comic book story like Jessica Jones or Dare Devil, except for without the super powers. We’re at the introduction part so it’s still aimless. Acting has been awesome. It’s early, but Wayne may get his 4th Best Actor award or be a the one to beat with this.

    Katy does look psycho but she’s missing a touch of smoothness in her movements. The character isn’t likeable right now.

    The last gun fight scene with Moses and Ali was fun. I like their vibe. Also want to see more of Elena.

    I can no longer stomach TVB series in recent years. I can’t believe that there are people out there that still can.

    Looool yeah the beginning of the first episode he reminded me of “Piggsy” in JTW. I was quite happy about it because JTW was my childhood. I am liking it so far, but I admit the plot is lacking. The characters are quite fun though I must say.

    It’s nice to see Wayne play such a character since in recent years he has been typecast into serious/dramatic characters even though he does comedy so well. Actually the whole cast is doing well, but I’m waiting for something to actually happen. There is a missing ingredient in this series.
