''The Killer'' (''Die Xue Shuang Xiong'', or "Bloodshed of Two Heroes") is considered one of Creator/JohnWoo's all time greatest films, drawing from such influences as Jean-Pierre Melville's hitman drama ''Film/LeSamourai'' and Chang Cheh's bloody masterpiece ''Vengeance''. Creator/ChowYunFat plays HitmanWithAHeart Ah Jong, whose life changes forever when, in the middle of carrying out a hit at a restaurant, he accidentally blinds a beautiful lounge singer by the name of Jenny, played by Sally Yeh, with the muzzle flash of his gun. Several days later, Jong rescues Jenny from muggers who are out to rob her and gets to know the girl a bit better and is all the more wracked with remorse for it. Jong wants to leave the business behind so that he can be with her, but in order to raise the money to have Jenny's eyes fixed, he will need to perform one last job for his triad, which is to kill a guy by the name of Wong Dung-Yu.

* BlindAndTheBeast: Jenny and Ah Jong. Played with in that's it not Jong's ''appearance'' that could be considered unpleasant, rather his [[ProfessionalKiller profession]] and the fact that it was him who blinded her, which she's initially unaware of.
* BloodBrothers: Two sets of these, Fung Sei being one on Ah Jong's side and Chang being one for Li. The two protagonists develop a bond like this toward the end of the movie.
