The Killer (1989)
Reviewed by: TequilaYuen on 2000-06-11
Summary: The Single Best Action Film Ever Made.
What can i say about the killer that hasn't already been said. It's the perfect blend of action and story, done with such love for the genre, and a real feel for characterization above the beautifully staged scenes of balletic violence. BAsed on Jean Pierre Melville's Le Samourai.
Chow yun Fat/John Woo/Danny Lee/Tsui harks finest jobs on a single film. This film is beautiful, 'nuff said. If your able to pick up the Criterion collection version, Do so! I found it in a local record shop which stocks DVD's. The title is currently out of production due to a liscencing problem. Features deleted scenes, which I had to own.
