The Killer is a 1972 Hong Kong martial arts film directed by Chor Yuen.[2]


The film was released in Hong Kong on August 1, 1972.[1]


From contemporary reviews, Tom Milne of the Monthly Film Bulletin reviewed a dubbed version of the film.[2] Milne found the film to be a "rather tired offering form the Hong Kong conveyor-belt" while noting the film begins well enough with the hero "arriving in town to confound one and all with his dazzling display of town-taming karate chops and kangaroo hops. It also end swell with the las-minute intervention of a genuine Japanese samurai, heralded by a mysterious sound in an apparently empty house as something falls, and one by one the panels of a screen topple over to reveal him in full regalia, ready to challenge the heroes to the only fight in the film staged with any style or imagination."[2] Milne concluded that the film "gets bogged down in endless, drearily identical fights and a plot which labours through its triangular complex of love and friendship."[2]
