The Replacement Killers (1998)

After spending years as a successful music video director, Fuqua made his feature film debut with this action thriller. Starring Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun-Fat as a deadly Chinese assassin forced to take a job with a powerful underworld boss in order to protect his family, Fuqua’s goal was to create a “Taxi Driver for the 1990s.” With its slick cinematography and carefully choreographed action sequences, the film put Fuqua on the map as a visionary action director.
