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
The M16 that John picks up in the car wash to use from the creeper is an A2 model, by its adjustable rear sight. The M16A2 has no full-automatic firing mode; at most, it fires 3-round bursts. See more »
You're safer with me.
Is it my perfume or something? Because you are the second guy today to assume I need, want or will accept help. I won't.
[drawing his pistol]
It's not an option.
And what happens when I tell you to go fuck yourself?
[John cocks his pistol]
O.K. If that's the way you want to play it. But when the gun is in my hand, we're gonna have this conversation again.

I'm a huge fan of CYF - for almost 30 years now. His on-screen persona is just the finest and he is one of the best actors out there!
But with other HK stars transfers to Hollywood - where the big wigs all claim that they know what is best - I was quite concerned for his debut.
Replacement Killers actually plays quite well!
Still carrying that 90's look, we are treated to 85 minutes of stylish Hong Kong wanna-be shoot outs and angles that sometimes overdoes the John Woo homages - some of which are pretty good, some that just ended up quite slow.
Regardless, it was a great introduction to the US audience for HK's coolest actor, and an enjoyable film nonetheless!
