Synopsis


The Killer
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. ~ Yuri German, Rovi

    Finally, The Killer in Blu-Ray

    The Killer is one of my, if not, my favorite movie of all time. Everything about it is top notch. It has a powerful story and lots of violence. Also The Killer has a lot of shootouts and can be described as one of John Woo's best films, aside from Bullet in the head. If you are a HK movie fan then this is a must buy if you have a blu-ray player. I just wish they would re-release all of the older movies like this and Hard Boiled, A Better Tomorrow, etc. on blu-ray.
