Editors Note
Note Versatile Hong Kong box office giant Chow Yun-Fat makes a Hollywood splash as a John Lee, Chinese hitman beholden to drug kingpin Mr. Wei (Hong Kong stalwart Ken Tsang, in an interesting reversal of his "crusty cop" persona). The good news is that Lee's free after one hit; the bad news is that Wei wants revenge on a cop who killed his son--by killing the cop's son. Lee decides to run rather than kill the boy, and Wei doesn't take kindly to the betrayal. Tough-talking passport forger Meg Coburn (Mira Sorvino) creates a new identity for Lee, but that's of little help when they must face Wei's army of "replacement killers." First-timer Fuqua provides eye-candy visuals and plenty of action set pieces. John Woo executive produced.
Reviews

Sight and Sound "...[Sorvino] attacks her role with skill. She never smiles until the final scene, but has stolen the show long before..." 06/01/1998 p.54-5
New York Times "...A sleek piece of filmmaking....[With] a mood that is dreamlike and almost lulling..." 02/06/1998 p.E19
Box Office "...THE REPLACEMENT KILLERS is a dazzlingly slick actioner that should not only thrill Chow's many devoted fans, but win him legions of new admirers as well..." 03/01/1998 p.54
Premiere "...As many stateside viewers get their first glimpse of Hong Kong action icon Chow, they're sure to be transfixed by [his] sexy combination of vulnerability and higher purpose..." 02/01/1998 p.21
Chicago Sun-Times "...It's a high-gloss version of a Hong Kong action picture....It's done with a tilt and a zoom....Cool and self-assured..." 02/26/1998 p.34
