Back in the 90's, John Woo was really hot and considered as an icon for many directors such as Quentin Tarantino. "The Killer" is supposed to be his "masterpiece"... I thought it was just bad. Lot of shootings, lot of slow motion... The top was one of the last scenes : There are the 2 main characters.

"Katsottu: 23.2.2016, rewatch, DVD Kyllä John Woo osaa tehdä upeaa toimintaa. Harmi että miehen Hollywood-tuotanto on ollut vähän heikompaa. Samoin Chow Yun-Fatin. Mutta tämä on kyllä loistava elokuva. Toimintaa riittää ja loppu oli hieman surullinenkin. Pitäisi kyllä hommata DVD:lle lisää Woo/Chow-leffoja. "
