John Woo's The Killer. Though it does at times suffer from eightiesitis (but would we realize how bloody it is if everyone wasn't dressed in white?), this is where began many of Woo's trademarks (slow-mo, ballistic ballet, doves, etc.). It's a "heroic bloodshed" film, so yeah, it feels like a Greek tragedy.
Sweet boat chase!
Allround a great action movie.
The best John Woo film by far. The fight scene in the church is easily one of the greatest in history. Nice soundtrack too.
