The perfect recipe for a John Woo actioner...

"Give a guy a gun, he's Superman. Give him two and he's God."

John Woo's Hard Boiled is a scrumptious feast for action lovers - an explosively visceral, operatic tour de force of amazingly choreographed violence and blistering pyrotechnics that's iced with Woo trademarks. At its core the film is a fairly standard cop drama with a limp emotional hook and cardboard characters, but wit... read more

Jaw-dropping action.

When I finished watching this film I needed a car-jack to wrench my jaw off of the floor and return it to its rightful place, it was absolutely amazing.

It's not the greatest film ever made, not by a long shot, and my use of the word 'amazing' might need elaborating on. Basically, this film is unbelievable. To be honest, I didn't see the ending scene coming, despite the big build u... read more

Top 10 Opening Action Scenes (10 movies items)

" Where would this list be without a little John Woo? The opening of Hard Boiled is one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Made before the digital age, it's wonderful to watch Woo's imagination run wild, with shooting and blood aplenty. It's perfectly orchestrated, and an ideal way to open this kick-ass action movie."

" Chinese. Directed by John Woo. The most amazing gun fights I've ever seen. And yeah, the poster isn't lying to you. There's a gunfight where the hero hold a baby while shooting."

Larri's picks: My Top40 of All-time (40 movies items)

"Lat sau san taam a/k/a Hard Boiled directed by John Woo Perhaps I'm the only one calling Hard Boiled a style-over-substance film but, frankly put, I think Hard Boiled could've delved much deeper into that whole undercover stuff and explored a little bit. Or maybe I just don't understand film language. I wouldn't be surprised by that either. Anyway, style-over-substance is a hard thing to pull off because if you don't like the director's stylistic choices then what is there to back the movie"

"Arguably one of the best action films ever made. John Woo's beautifully planned choreography on the action sequences is just gorgeous to watch, latter half of the film being an almost endless gunfight with some crazy baby humor included. Woo's legendary, almost three minutes long take with single handheld camera is also something to mention of and one of the highest bodycounts in movie history cannot be bad thing either. Woo's other masterpiece The Killer comes close but personally I still think"

"One of the best action films I've seen in awhile. Tons of awesome action scenes and the characters are very well done as well. It's Die Hard meets Infernal Affairs. "

"5.6. Että tällainen tapa hyvästellä Hong Kong... Teehuone, varasto, venesatama ja kokonainen sairaala laitetaan totaaliseen remonttiin, ruumiita tulee oikeasti päälle 300, josta monet ammutaan aivan seuloiksi, Anthony Wongin pahis paljastuu helvetin armottomaksi, Chow Yun-Fat lepyttelee vauvaa tappaessaan samalla pahiksia ja minä tuijotan silmät lautasina kaikkea mitä tapahtuu. Valehtelematta äärimmäisintä ja uskomattominta toimintaelokuvaa, mitä olen ikinä todistanut. Niin mieli"
