A mob assassin tries to set things right in John Woo’s THE KILLER.
A 35mm presentation.

Mob assassin Jeffrey (Chow Yun-Fat) is no ordinary hired gun. He’s the best in his business and 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.
