Failing to kill anymore because of his conscience, a troubled hit-man seeks aid from a forger to help him get papers to China. However, the drug-lord has hired replacements to finish the job and kill the hit-man.
John Lee is the best hitman money can buy. But when John refuses to kill because of the seven year-old son of his target, John's bosses send someone after John to kill him and then take his place in the ring of hitmen. John then teams up with Meg Coburn to help him escape these "Replacement Killers." Written by

During the carwash shootout, the car that John and Meg jump into becomes riddled with bullet holes. Whenever the camera angle switches to the more distant view, as they drive off, the bullet holes are gone. See more »
an instantly forgettable film, with instantly forgettable characters and plot. tells the story of a hitman who has to do one last job so he can return home or something? has a crisis of conscience when the cop he is to kill is there with his son. he cant go through with it thus incurring the wraith of the big boss, mr wei who wants him dead. the film is really three or four gun fights tagged together with little dramatic inbetween. We never care for the characters, never are bothered what happenes to them as we can predict the outcome of the film after the first 5 minutes. its obvious sorvino and fat will end up liking and respecting each other, obvious fat will kill all the baddies thus gaining his redemption, obvious rooker will have a heart and let our protagonists escape. overall the film is uninspired paint by numbers rubbish which is admitedlly easy to watch. like alot of more recent films these days the film isnt bad, just very very average and forgotten as soon as the credits role
