The Replacement Killers
dir. Antoine Fuqua (1998)
A straightforward lone-wolf action film that just about transcends its 1980s b-movie vibes. Chow Yun-fat invests his character with a rare vulnerability. Mira Sorvino makes the most of an unusually empowered (if poorly dialogued and lamentably shallow, wholly plot-serving) ‘female hanger-on’ role.
