The Killer    (1989)
Tsui Hark refused to produce the movie due to obscure arguments with director John Woo. Super star Chow Yun Fat managed however to make it happen. Hark hasn't let it go so easily and he imposed Woo some constraints. He cast Sally Yeh, he refused to use any jazzy music score (as wished originally by Woo) and he wrote the dialogue scene between Jeff and his friend Sidney. Apart from that, John Woo made one of his greatest movies ever. Chow Yun Fat amazing acting and tragic elements of the story made this movie a masterpiece. It was obviously an impressive box office success in HK. The Killer made the gangster-movie genre a typical local genre in HK.
