...it's ultimately impossible not to wonder what Chow, making his English-language debut here, was thinking when he signed up for the project.

The John Woo school of the ballet of bullets gets a full dose of Sam Peckinpah under the steady hand of director Antoine Fuqua's finely framed tale of revenge.

An unworthy vehicle for a great star like Chow Yun-fat.

The Replacement Killers is not a very good film, but it is impossible to deny that it has a certain beauty.

Will serve as a suitable replacement when [Chow Yun Fat's] better films are already rented out for the weekend.

Style over substance all the way, but at least it's not boring.

The most dispiriting thing about The Replacement Killers is that it proves Chow [Yun-Fat]'s charisma repressible.

One cannot accuse Killers of possessing a kernel of intelligence, but it's still a stylish action film.

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.

The ever-charismatic Chow will certainly have no trouble winning new fans with his English language debut.

Unfortunately, "The Replacement Killers" isn't a film by John Woo.

A fair action thriller is offered here but what a difference this movie would make from merely being fair to that of being a fist-full-of-frenzied fun. A mild recommendation at best.
