One of the best action films ever made.,
This review is from: The Killer [DVD] (DVD)
John Woo made his best films in Hong Kong, and 'The Killer' is his best film. Some people say that 'The Killer' is the best action film to come out of Hong Kong. I would go so far as to say it is the best action films ever made, anywhere in the world.
To sum it up, it is: 'A collision of exuberant pulp, samurai mythology and modern, urban noir'.
This film is outstanding in every way - the acting is simply brilliant with Chow Yun Fat and Kenneth Tsang, the editing is fantastic, and the action sequences put hollywood to shame.
The Killer inspired Tatantino to make Reservior Dogs and if that isn't enough to make you buy this, than nothing is!
