The Killer (HK 1989)

Rating: ****
Producer: Tsui Hark
Director: John Woo
Cast: Chow Yun Fat, Danny Lee, Sally Yeh, Shing Fui On

Chow Yun Fat is an assassin with strong morals and code of honor, and Danny Lee is a cop who'll stop at nothing to catch him. They eventually team up and take out everybody (I mean EVERYBODY). Lots of blood and bullets combined with the stunning visual artistry of Tsui Hark/John Woo. Great stuff, although it's overly melodramatic.
