The Replacement Killers (1998)

(On VHS, August 1999) There’s no mistake that this is B-movie: Cop drama with hitmen, policemen, damsels in occasional distress, gunfights, cars, guns… Fortunately, if the film can’t transcend its roots, it faithfully exemplify the genre. Chow Yun Fat and Mira Sorvino are pretty darn cool/cute in quasi tailor-made roles, and the director is competent when it comes to action scenes. Unfortunately, the whole film feels curiously vapid and unmemorable, true to form for most B-movies.
