Storyline

"FOUR ASSASSINS" aka "Far Away Eyes" is a tense drama about an ace assassin who reunites with three professional colleagues at a Hong Kong hotel room to resolve unfinished business. The film was heavily influenced by the modern "Wuxia" genre - following a tragic protagonist with exceptional fighting skills and a yearning for something more. Not your ordinary "shoot 'em" film, Four Assassins examines the internal pain and conflicts of four highly trained killers and ask the ultimate question "What is the price of love?

A tense drama
21 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Contrary to some of the user reviews, this is actually a worthwhile, claustrophobic drama. If you're expecting a "bang-bang-guns-ablazing-shoot'em up" as suggested by the title -- look elsewhere.

But if you're into a character study of four killers examining how they got to where they are while dealing with an unfinished hit, then this is for you. Yes, it takes it's time. But it's a rewarding slow build to a tense climax.

Will Yun Lee and Miguel Ferrer are stand-outs in a well-rounded cast. The movie's few action sequences are expertly choreographed and executed with style. Camera work is inventive given that the majority of the story takes place in one location. Even the music is impressive.

All in all, this is a classy indie movie.
