Die xue shuang xiong = The killer by John Woo( Visual )

18 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a highly kinetic male bonding movie which is also something of a commentary on classic American and French gangster movies comparable to Sergio Leone's on the western. A maverick cop in effect falls in love with the killer he has to apprehend. The killer in turn is fixated on a woman he has inadvertently blinded while carrying out a hit. The Killer is an outrageously high camp mix of choreographed aggression fantasy combined with romantic fatalism and glossy melodrama suggesting in Jim Hoberman's words ǹothing so much as Magnificent Obsession remade by Sam Peckinpah." The Killer also recalls the the Chinese martial chivalry genre popular in the sixties, particularly through the role of Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun-Fat as the killer, àn updating of the all but gay myths into the gangster genre.'
