It shouldn't work. It has none of the character or magic of the HK classics, but Chow's US debut does somehow manage to pull it off despite being barebones. I chalk it up to the wonderful leads and Fuqua's promise in the director's chair.
Adequate enough action fodder, could've been a lot worse if you ask me.
rated 'The Replacement Killers' 3 out of 5 stars
Easily Antoine Fuqua's best work. Apes Hong Kong cinema in the best ways, and Hollywood supplies the mawkishness.
