    all the elements that make John Woo who he is, the doves, the dual pistol, and lots of shooting. Fun flick.

    I love it... one of my favorites.

    But you have to admit that the last scene is totally overboard.

    The two lovers are blind and mortally wounded, crawling across the ground to each other for the last bit of comfort before death - and they crawl right past each other not even knowing the other is there. And then they die.

    ugh.

    Just goes to show you, that I can even nitpick my favorites.

    Yeah, that is a little messed up, but does the girl die? I didn't notice that she got shot.

    I think she survives. The Killer is great, also great is Hard Boiled and Better Tomorrow I and II.
