The Killer

1h 50m
Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Mob assassin Jeffrey is no ordinary hired gun; the best in his business, he views his chosen profession as a calling rather than simply a job. So, when beautiful nightclub chanteuse Jennie is blinded in the crossfire of his most recent hit, Jeffrey chooses to retire after one last job to pay for his unintended victim's sight-restoring operation. But when Jeffrey is double-crossed, he reluctantly joins forces with a rogue policeman to make things right.

Not the best John Woo film but I will say the shoot outs in this film put most Hollywood films to shame and honestly, you can see how the John Woo / Chow Yun-Fat films from this era inspired films like John Wick and the Equalizer in how they film action. Chow Yun-Fat (Ah Jong) is still a super badass and he always will be, the story is pretty basic but you didn't come to this film for the story you came to see badass moments and cool shootouts and you will not be disappointed. Give it a watch if you want just a mindless action film and just remember......SUBS OVER DUBS!!!!!! Sidenote: If anyone has any Chow Yun-Fat recommendations then please reply, I know the John Woo films and Tiger on the Beat but want to see more of him.

"I always leave one bullet, either for myself or for my enemy." Chow Yun-fat is a badass right? The Killer is one of John Woo's best films. It is overly dramatic, the ending is Shakespearean, the final shoot-out is balls to the wall, the scene were Ah Jong (Chow Yun-fat) and Li Ying (Danny Lee) meet for the first time is brilliant and the airport scene is the bomb. The Killer is 110 of car chases, bullets flying around, slow motion shots, doves flying around, a song being sung a couple of times, bout chases and a killer final 15 minutes. The Killer isn't as perfect as Hard-Boiled but it was a great step towards that magical film.

The Killer ended up in front of me in the early nineties along with a bunch of other Hong Kong action flicks. At the time, I gobbled up just about anything that looked like it had action scenes in it, and the HK movies were a welcome addition. The Killer was the first of them I saw and from then on More
