The film pools together Best Actor winners such as Eric Tsang, Simon Yam, Anthony Wong, Alex Fong, Liu Ye, and Tse Kwan Ho, co-starring with character actors Yuen Wah (Kung Fu Hustle) and Liu Kai Chi. Gorgeous Karena Lam collaborates with new actress Annie Liu, selected from thousands of girls during casting, to portray two Mob Sisters who have to join the triads against their will.

Annie Liu's lack of experience was seemingly no obstacle in her performance as a naive girl brought up by gangsters. On the other hand, Karena Lam gives up her usual sweet-girl roles, such as the ones in Floating Landscape and It Had To Be You, and takes on a new challenge to play a female gangster in this off-beat and original female-centered Hong Kong triad movie.

Director Wong Ching Po, a past Best New Director winner at the Hong Kong Film Awards, subverts gangster movies' traditions not only by telling the story from a female point of view, but also by making it a visually arresting motion picture. He tries to make almost every frame in Mob Sister aesthetically complex. Karena Lam's white dresses and Annie Liu's red ones form an interesting and impressive contrast. For movie lovers who want to see a highly stylized gangster movie, Mob Sister is a visual treat.

French chef Costello (Johnny Hallyday) arrives in Macau to see his daughter (Sylvie Testud), whose husband and kids have been killed by mob hitmen. A former hitman himself, Costello has memory problems because of a bullet lodged in his brain, and must get revenge before he forgets everything. Wandering Macau, he happens upon affable hitmen Kwai (Anthony Wong), Chu (Gordon Lam), and Lok (Lam Suet), and hires them to avenge his family. The four of them manage to track down the killers, but Kwai, Chu, and Lok find out a few gunfire showdowns too late that their boss (Simon Yam) was behind the hit.
