International superstar Chow Yun-Fat (John Woo's Hard Boiled) makes his Hollywood debut with Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino (1995, Best Supporting Actress, Mighty Aphrodite) in The Replacement Killers, a fierce and explosive action thriller from director Antoine Fuqua (Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise video). After he betrays Mr. Wei, the ruthless crime boss who hired him to avenge his son's death, professional killer John Lee (Chow Yun-Fat) goes on the run. Enlisting the aid of beautiful document forger Meg Coburn (Mira Sorvino), Lee attempts to return to his family in China before they are victimized by his betrayal. But Wei's army of "replacement killers" is hot on his trail, and now both sides fully armed and determined to fight to the death, an ultra-violent shoot-out breaks out when they finally face off against each other. It's a "seamless fusion of Hong Kong action-adventure style and cool" (The New York Times) that will blow everyone away -- including you!
