4-21-2018 MOVIE REVIEW: THE REPLACEMENT KILLERS (1998)

Chow Yun-fat stars as professional hit man John Lee who refuses orders from a Chinese mob boss to take out a detective’s son after the detective kills the boss’s son in a drug deal gone wrong.  Lee, desperately looking to get back to his family in China to avoid the boss’s retribution, is in need of a passport and upon recommendation teams up with master forger Meg Coburn (Mira Sorvino) to escape the “Replacement Killers" who’ve been sent after him.  This picture will remind newer audiences of the more recent John Wick series and is most certainly worth a view.  Great action sequences.  Directed by Antoine Fuqua whose other notable works include Training Day and The Equalizer. ***
