The Replacement Killers
Chow YunFat is John Lee, whose violent past as a professional killer brings him only remorse, but also makes him the ideal assassin. In exchange for his family's safety, Lee is forced to take a job with powerful underworld crime boss Mr Wei, who wants to settle a deadly vendetta against police detective Stan Zedkov Michael Rooker. With the aid of document forger Meg Coburn Mira Sorvino, who in helping him becomes an unwitting target herself, Lee races against time to outrun and outsmart Weis army of killers.

- " The Replacement Killers is as abstract as a jazz instrumental, and as cool and self-assured. " – Roger Ebert
- " Fuqua…obviously knows a good thing when he sees one and lets Chow dominate The Replacement Killers so thoroughly that the movie's liabilities…slide by relatively painlessly. " – Maitland McDonagh
