Audience Reviews for Contract Killer

Despite not having too many creative fight scenes, it was a very easy watching film.

I liked the comic sidekick in this film the most.

Pleasant balance of action, both standard issue and martial arts, and a fair amount of humour make this import worth a look.

An atypical Jet Li movie, but backed up well by veterans Eric Tsang, noted for his comedy and Simon Yam, veteran action star who I believe is one of the underrated stars in the HK film industry.

Well, its a Jet Li action flick, excpect plenty of kick ass, and Jet Li is an okay actor, this still wasnt one of his best films, but still watchable. Its interesting enough, plot wise and better than most other action movies. Then again, noone watched HK action movies for the plot. XD

If you're a Jet Li fan, watch it.

Totally raw with a hint of humor. A highly protected elderly and ruthless businessman plots a ransom on the head of his masked assassin. A down and out "wannabe" hitman goes through changes with a conman to take on the assignment. In their adventure, not only do they find out who the hitman is, they eventually acquire the assistance of the police department, because the grandson of the ruthless businessman has an agenda of his own. Incredible fight scenes, (lousy stab at hip-hop soundtrack...LOL!...) good story line, for a martial arts epic..
