Overview
Explosive, bold and mind-blowing, The Killer is a pulse-stopping action sensation more bullet-riddled than any movie in history.

Jeffrey is The Killer, the ultimate hit man, hired by the mob for one last job. Lee is the relentless cop, a maverick whose mission is to stop The Killer at any cost. The two enemies form a strange and powerful bond that blurs the line between good and evil.

When Jeffrey is double-crossed by the mob in a blazing shootout, Lee finally picks up The Killer's trail in a church while Jeffrey's beautiful mistress is caught in the crossfire. An arsenal of automatic weapons flare in a bloody date with destiny.
