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

My Top 20 Favorite Action Movies (20 movies items)

" "Give a guy a gun, he thinks he's Superman. Give him two and he thinks he's God." I had a hard time choosing between this and The Killer for this list, but in the end this movie nudged it out because of the brilliant hospital scene. That is one of the best action sequences i have ever seen. John Woo was definitely at his best in Hong Kong where he didn't have to worry about all the Hollywood studio interference. Chow Yun-Fat is also a great action star that also never got the projects he deser"

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: May (38 movies items)

"May 10 "Give a guy a gun, he thinks he's Superman. Give him two and he thinks he's God." This is one of the best action movies ever made. Not only does it have amazing action scenes, it also has some great acting and dialogue. While John Woo has made some good American movies, they cannot compare to a good old action movie set in Hong Kong."

"Katsottu: 1.2.2014 YouTubesta John Woon (Mission: Impossible 2, Broken Arrow) ohjaamassa hongkongilaisessa toimintaelokuvassa poliisi Tequila (Chow-Yun Fat) etsii käsiinsä parinsa murhaajia ja tapaa peitehommissa olevan etsivä Alanin (Tony Leung Chiu Wai). Juonellisesti Hard Boiled ei ole ihmeellinen, mutta toiminta on komeaa ja sitä on paljon, lopussa ehkä liikaakin, sillä lopun sairaalaosio kestää noin puoli tuntia. Tämä elokuva esitteli uuden tavan käyttää portaita"

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"29.12. (DVD) Olihan tämä parempi kuin muistikuvani nuoruudesta, jolloin katselimme Hard Boiledin levottomissa merkeissä ja perse kutisten kaverini minitelkkarista äänet hiljaisella. Hongkong nähdään eläväisenä ja omalla tavallaan viehättävänä materiahelvettinä, ja niin mäiskettä kuin muutakin räminää riittää. Musat ovat hyvät ja elokuvassa nähtävät ruoatkin näyttävät hyvältä, nam. Ei lintuhäkkiä saisi paiskoa..."
