Mob assassin Jeffrey is no ordinary hired gun; the best in his business, he views his chosen profession as a calling rather than simply a job. So, when beautiful nightclub chanteuse Jennie is blinded in the crossfire of his most recent hit, Jeffrey chooses to retire after one last job to pay for his unintended victim's sight-restoring operation. But when Jeffrey is double-crossed, he reluctantly joins forces with a rogue policeman to make things right.

John Woo hits his most definitely mark and the film is both wonderfully waggish, witty and a weaponry heaven for any action fan out there.
There is something really interesting about watching a film like The Killer, and recognizing its fingerprints in other action or crime films.
