If I recall correctly the woman was blind from the start and the man became blind during one thos... read more

Katsotut 2016 (226 movies items)

"Katsottu: 23.2.2016, rewatch, DVD Kyllä John Woo osaa tehdä upeaa toimintaa. Harmi että miehen Hollywood-tuotanto on ollut vähän heikompaa. Samoin Chow Yun-Fatin. Mutta tämä on kyllä loistava elokuva. Toimintaa riittää ja loppu oli hieman surullinenkin. Pitäisi kyllä hommata DVD:lle lisää Woo/Chow-leffoja. "
