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
This movie set the record for the most bullets fired in an American film. See more »
In the final scenes after the shoot out at the end, when Zedkov runs into John and Meg in the stairwell, Chinese characters are clearly visible all over the walls. However, in a few cuts during the confrontation, a two syllable Korean word is clearly painted on the walls. The word is "bah-boh" which loosely translates to "Dummy" in Korean. See more »
An excellent movie that I've enjoyed through many viewings
I suppose this is actually a B movie, but there's something about this movie that keeps me coming back to see it again every few months. Maybe it's the rather unique (for Hollywood, anyway) relationship between Meg and John. I mean, they don't even so much as kiss each other and barely touch at all! But I think they make the screen sizzle, nonetheless.
I must admit I love the action in this movie, too. Every once in a while I wonder how a small time forger learned to fight and shoot like she does, but then I blissfully ignore it and just enjoy the movie.
Great action scenes, wonderful relationship development and great acting by Mira and Yun-Fat Chow make this a movie I'm sure I'll see many more times.
