Chow And Sorvino Click In ‘Replacement Killers’

By The Spokesman-Review
 

The spirit of Hong Kong cinema is alive and well in “The Replacement Killers,” an action movie produced (though not directed) by John Woo and starring Chow Yun-Fat and Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino. The film uses music-video stylisms slo-mo, jump cuts, weird camera angles to tell its story of murder, loyalty and revenge. The bullets fly fast, and it seems as if Sorvino is slumming, but she partners well with Chow, one of the world’s most popular stars. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
