The Killer Review

Image for The Killer

Jeffery (Chow-Yun-Fat) is an assassin with a heart; he vowes to take on just one more job so he can earn enough money to take care of his girlfriend, who he accidentally blinded on a previous assignment. However, his empolyer has different plans for him...let the double crossing begin!

★★★★★

Gunfire. Bullets thudding into human flesh. Dead bodies hitting the ground. This is what it sounds like when the doves fly.

John Woo's trademark style reached its zenith in The Killer, with its ying-yang relationship between a good-hearted hit man and an anti-authority cop. But underneath the Miami Vice tailoring, it's as much a doomed romance as a shoot-'em-up.
