Before John Wick returns, meet The Killer in our exclusive clip from the South Korean action-thriller.

While action fans are eager for John Wick: Chapter 4, another deadly assassin is invading the UK later this month! The Killer (not to be confused with John Woo’s Hong Kong classic) is the latest South Korean action-thriller in the grand tradition of films such as The Man From Nowhere, The Villainess and recent Netflix hit, Carter.
The film reunites The Swordsman star Jang Hyuk and director Choi Jae-hoon and, whereas that film featured elegant but brutal traditional swordplay, this modern guns and gangsters tale guarantees that bullets will fly!

Take a look at this exclusive clip, one of the film’s many visceral action scenes.

Ui-gang (Jang Hyuk) is a legendary hitman who has decided to retire from the business and pursue a legitimate career. When his wife takes a trip, she issues a request, for Ui-gang to look after her travel companion’s 17-year old daughter, Yoon-ji (K-pop star Lee Seo-young aka Anne from GWSN). Ui-gang reluctantly agrees, but when the girl with a wild streak falls afoul of gangsters, Yoon-ji finds herself kidnapped and in a situation more dangerous than she ever imagined. However, while the girl is in over her head, her captors will also find themselves with more than they can handle when Ui-gang begins tearing the city apart to get her back!

From acclaimed director Choi Jae-hoon and adapted from a popular novel, The Killer is said to be a cool, stylish and fast-paced thriller with incredible action scenes which further cements the elite reputation of South Korean cinema.

Trinity CineAsia presents The Killer on Digital platforms from 27th March and Blu-ray & DVD 17th April. Pre-order your copy here and check out more exclusive clips with SciFiNow.
