Overview

Killer (1989)

Though John Woo's lifelong admiration of Sam Peckinpah, Sergio Leone, Martin Scorsese, and Stanley Kubrick are also evident in this stylish actioner, the film is essentially a tribute to Jean-Pierre Melville and his cult thriller Le Samouraï. During a restaurant shoot-out, hitman Jeff (Chow Yun-Fat) accidentally hurts the eyes of a singer (Sally Yeh). Later, he meets the girl and discovers that if she does not have a very expensive operation very soon, she will go blind. To get the money for the surgery, Jeff decides to perform one last hit. The cop (Danny Lee), who has been chasing Jeff for a long time, is determined to catch him this time. The film's number of victims makes The Terminator or Rambo pale in comparison, but its brilliant visual style and bravura direction earned accolades even from non-action fans.

This is one of the greatest action movie of all time. This movie has the Choreography of a Kung-Fu movie combined with the explosions of a Rambo film. I suggest that you buy this film along with another film, that directed by John Woo, called Hard Boiled. Enjoy

The first time I saw this movie it was on cable and my jaw hit the floor. This was the most amazing film I had seen in a long time. John Woo is one of the best action directors around and this is one of his finest. There is some corny dialog and lame chinese humor but that doesn't take away from the movie. If you're an action fan and you haven't seen this movie yet then shame on you.
