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.

"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.
