GOD OF KILLERS (1981) * ½

Arena re-released this older Chow Yun-Fat flick in order to cash in on his Stateside success. The title has been changed to make you think of his biggest Hong Kong hit, The Killer. You’ll be thinking of The Killer all right, thinking you wanna watch that instead dreary, boring mess. It’s good that older Fat movies are being released on video, but the transfer is hideous. It’s subtitled in BOTH American and Chinese, but since the screen is cropped so badly only about a third of the American translation is on screen, rendering most of the movie incomprehensible. The only reason to watch it is for Fat and the amazing death by toothbrush scene.
